When Santa purges the unfaithful, all those Anti-Santmetic promoters will pay in Green and Red. Oh how the unfaithful shall fall before the jolliest of them all.

I think too it is getting a bit silly what they're trying to do to as to not offend minorities.

Komrad_B its not like christmas really relates to religion now, we cannot just purge all religious influence on our traditions and our cultures.

True, sadly almost every holiday has a commercial connotation.

Being nonreligious, Christmas means nothing more to me than time to spend with my family.

And food. Can't forget the food.

Man Hangs Bound, Blindfolded Santa From Tree Neighborhood Residents Furious POSTED: 11:31 am EST December 7, 2005 UPDATED: 12:24 pm EST December 7, 2005 MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- In one South Florida community, a man's holiday decorations are causing holiday fear for local children instead of creating cheer. Residents called police and complained to the city that a house in Miami Beach had a life-sized, blindfolded Santa Claus doll hanging from a tree with its hands tied. Some residents were furious and said their naughty neighbor put jolly old St. Nick in a position that is not too merry. But even police officers couldn't save a Santa who was bound, gagged and hanging for the holidays. The owner of the house says it's freedom of speech. But his neighbors think it's the start of a creepy Christmas. Parents are afraid the decoration will cause a nightmare before Christmas for their children. The owner was not at the house, but Miami NBC station WTVJ found him at his primary residence. The man said the Santa Claus was an artistic expression. He said the hanged Santa Claus would be down by Wednesday.

that's hillarious.... This just came on the new...

I'm all for preventing to force down a religion down someones throat and thus I wouldn't like a school to tell me I should be Christian and "it is the only right thing to believe" but I also am all for freedom of religion and opinion.

If somebody wants to celebrate a relitious day then let them. Removing anything that has to do with christmas, christ or god is a bit overboard. God can refer to ANY god not the christian god persé. You also don't need to be religious to engage into religious acts or believe in the same religion. I was in a Roman Catholic primairy school and I would do all the same things as the rest of class. No we didn't pray or anything but the priest/pastor would come every week and I would particpate in his group conversations/debates and listen just fine, I would also come to the christmass celebation in church (which was in honer of Jesuschrist) even though I did not and do not believe on a god. It's perfectly fine to do so because public morals and religion are all about sharing, equality, peace and friendship.

Well, Christmas is one of the jolliest times during the year if you ask me. All my family is together, and we are having a generaly nice time.

Oh, and yes, I am a Christian.
