I’m really getting sick and tired of all of this political correctness infecting the Holiday Cheer of the season. First we have Nina Totenberg apologizing for using the term in an interview….
Then I hear someone complaining about that Christmas trees in schools and other public institutions make the children of religions other than Catholicism feel left out. Give me a break here. There are plenty of communal get togethers nationwide, and most likely worldwide that do not require you to be of any certain religion to partake in them.
Two examples come to mind. Santa Con: http://www.asylum.com/2010/12/15/sexy-santa-girls-go-wild-santacon-2010/

This is just the beginning. Do you see any bigotry here? Does this not look like fun to you? Think of all of the joy and cheer that is spread from noble institutions like these. Me personally, my best memories from childhood surround Christmas. The gatherings with family and loved ones. The great food and libations. The sharing of gifts. There is a tangible hum in the air that most people, unless they are determined to have a bad time mostly enjoy. These Grinches and their out of control political correctness simply must go gently into the night. Every religion is allowed to celebrate their own specific forms of seasonal revelries or abstinences without being persecuted. This is what these nitwits always preach, but once again their double standards are right out in the open, but they don’t seem to want to realize this. Ignorance is bliss, or in their cases, their sanctimonious and hypocritical discontent is their bliss.
