    What do we have to look forward to with the Satanists?
    In what alternate universe is "Christmas fading"? That is utter nonsense.

    I'm not anti-Christmas. I've celebrated it every year of my life -- in my own home, or in the homes of friends and family. And in the stores I go to. And on the television shows I watch. And in practically every aspect of our culture.

    I've even seen Trans Siberian Orchestra for the last three years.

    I'm not anti-Christmas. But I am a firm believer in the separation of church and state.

    I can enjoy watching laser beam and fireball enhanced guitar solos of classic Christmas tunes and still not feel hypocritical about wanting the government to stay out of the religion business.

    And there it is. Freedom for me, but not for thee.

    It's true, satanism is taking over. They had a fancy cotton and construction paper display in Florida, and everything.

    Are there many public displays in your town during Ramadan?

    There is still less than there was. It once began in November and the annual Santa Claus parade, now defunct in all or most places, was often held in late November or early December. Good to see that radio still lives.

    You agree on the decorations then.

    No, but you seem fine with it, since it's not "normative."

    I fail to see what NAMBLA has to do with this at all.

    I don't. I see the same amount as I did growing up.
