The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.
Well, I sure am glad this is in Breaking News, because I had no freaking clue that so many of us observed Christmas in this way, but now I do!
I'm sure the next thread will read something like, "CIA Probe Reveals Pope is Catholic."
Will wonders never cease?
"NIH releases study linking masturbation to orgasm."
"First Lady: Singing in the rain gets me wet."
As for the OP, yes people are attacking Christmas. Anytime any group wants to get rid of X-mas decorations from any public place it is an attack on Christmas. Anytime that a teacher is not allowed to say "Merry Christmas" it is an attack on Christmas. Now you can say that I'm useing the wrong word or that I'm overreacting or that I'm using hyperbole, but just remember, what you consider an attack and what I consider an attack may be two different things.

I agree with Ipast. Can't offer anyone a link showing an actual case of someone attacking Christmas but I do know that the word Christmas is removed from schools and many businesses. So instead they use words such as Holiday Season or Winter Celebration.
I am far from religious but I like the American Christmas tradition. Trying to call a Christmas tree a holiday tree is like using astericks for letters in profanity. Who in the heck do they think they are fooling? We all know its a Christmas tree and we know what that word is they are trying to sneak by.
I honestly dont remember anyone I knew making it so religious a thing that it could be an affront to anyone else...
Just because they say it's a religious holiday does not mean they're religious, anymore than someone who says they are Christian but doesn't go to Church or practice its major tennets.
