Doesn't it seem a bit silly to demand that people, who might work at your local retailer but actually worship in another fashion other than the fashion of Christianity, wish you a Merry Christmas with all that's going on in the world?
I mean, this year, we lost a city. Not a building. Not part of a city. We lost an entire city. There used to be a city on the gulf coast called New Orleans. Many people called this home. Many people will not be wished a Merry Christmas here-not because they don't believe, but because they aren't alive.
We are in a war. We're loosing men and women who are citizens of the United States over a war. Half the country has no idea why we are in the war. Half of us think we were lied to about the reasons. Shouldn't that be discussed?
Our country is broke. We are spending like there is no tomorrow and we continue to build up more debt.
The US has just executed another human being.
Our president wants to extend the patriot act, which allows the government to violate our personal privacy just because.
Umm those are issues off the top of my head. So why exactly are we worried about who says Merry Christmas?
I know this wasn't a peaceful post. It's easy to get distracted. Remember what's important and fight the fights that are important.
