A holiday season without religion?
You have no right to try take Christ out of my Christmas
When there was prayers in school, I can not recollect a school shooting! When people were allowed to share their faith openly with out judgement there was an understanding. I had never met a Jehovah witness until kindergarten the child explained they did not believe in the morning prayer and the pledge and did not have to participate. I do not recall anyone smacking him with a bible and or throwing holy water on him to change his views.
The billboard depicting Jesus by Neptune and Santa by the devil is nothing more than a hate crime against Christians and the celebration of Christmas. This would be unacceptable if Christians had put up some billboard with a hateful message. Small children are seeing this sign, that truly can not be good for their mental well being no matter what religion. Most religions are based on peace and acceptance however I have noticed through out the years there has been more attacks on the Christian community and their beliefs. We are all still alive so no one can truly say what the after life may bring.
Keep Christ in Christmas, for those that it is truly unacceptable too DO NOT CELEBRATE IT! Easy enough answer like the Jehovah Witness did not say the pledge that was his right. Our right was to say the Pledge of Allegiance, Prayer, and celebrate Christmas with Christ based celebrations. You and your religious choices have no right to take and change any of our Holidays as we do not have any right to change yours.
