    Feel free to either support their ignorance, or let them know what a bunch of morons they are.
    Just so I got this right, in your opinion a CHRISTMAS TREE isn't a religious symbol?

    I admit I'm utterly baffled by even the existence of the concept of a war on Christmas. The Christmas season extends from Thanksgiving all the way to January 1st (that's 34 days), and is widely celebrated with varying symbols, including but not limited to Jesus, Santa, Christmas trees, menorahs and a billion other things. Easter, on the other hand, is celebrated with varying symbols, like Jesus and a rabbit that leaves chocolate in your sock drawer, lasts one day, yet Christmas is the holiday Fox News spazzes out about like clockwork? I suspect most Christians roll their eyes every time they hear "war on Christmas" every year, so I'm calling shennanigans. I suspect some marketing gimmick over this, and that Fox News isn't just catering to paranoid viewers but money is more directly involved somehow.

    If you thought that to be the case, it would explain why the term 'liberal' is associated by your name.

    Thank you very much for verifying your ignorance on what is and what is not a religious symbol.

    No, it isn't a religious symbol. Unless your religion has a fat man coming down the chimney to put presents underneath the tree.

    Last I checked, the "religious holiday" of Christmas is celebrating the birth of Christ. However, at least in my household, I celebrate the "holiday" of Christmas as a time for family to come together and celebrate life. I use the tree as a decoration, not a religious symbol.

    Google it..

    Much like marriage, Christianity adopted somebody else's practice, claimed it for themselves, and bastardized it to suit their own needs.

    Why are liberals mistreating seniors now? Next they'll force seniors to eat dog food.
    I bet the government would step in were the privately owned home to serve dog food.

    How did Christians "hijack and bastardize marriage"?

    What did people marry before the evil christians bastardized it
