Re: CHRISTMAS - it's now a dirty word
This BS stems from immigrants that come into this country and then demand that we abandon our religious roots.* "In God We Trust" has been on US currency for MANY years, and non-christians (both immigrants and natives alike) are now demanding that be removed as well.* I'm not trying to lump everyone into one pile, but those that ARE crossing our borders and then stirring up this rediculous rant about us 'forcing our religion down your throats' better start thinking about why they came to America to begin with.* Apparently, if things didn't really SUCK in your home country, you wouldn't have come here.* I say if you're going to immigrate to America and enjoy all the rights and privileges of citizenship, you better be prepared to embrace, or at least tolerate / ingnore our customs and get it out of your head that you're going to force your faith (or lack of) down our throats.* As for the natives that want to 'de-religion' the country, nobody's forcing you to put a tree in your living room, give your family presents, or use US currency.* Like anyone else, when you see something you don't like or agree with, feel free to ingore it rather than try to take it away from the people who do observe it as American heritage.
