I know people want to ban things like the phrase "Christmas tree" in favor of "holiday tree." Personally I don't understand this. I celebrate Christmas, but if someone says "Happy Hanukkah" to me I won't be offended, it's not an insult or anything. What do you all think about the political correctness regarding this?

It doesn't offend me. I'm an atheist, but I'm used to seeing christmas-themed stuff everywhere. You don't see me ordering to take this christian propaganda down. If it's in a predominantly christian state, I don't see the problem with celebrating a christian holiday.

I wouldn't expect to see decorated trees and Santa Claus in, say, Saudi Arabia.

it's only in your backwards country. over here in the real world, we can still call everything christmas tree.

fuck haters.

It's called "let's trample on the beliefs and opinions of the majority in order to bend over backwards for the minority", aka political correctness.

You're all religion haters until there are presents and turkey are involved.

But seriously..

In Soviet Russia, we celebrate the new year. It's pretty much the exact same thing, but without Baby Jesus, even though the date is counted from the year Jesus was born.

So we're supposed to take a holiday that is essentially based on a religious event (of course, the details have been messed up over the centuries and the focus seems to have shifted, but the point remains) and start renaming things because it isn't inclusive of other beliefs?

No one's offended!!!!!!!

All this 'political correctness GONE MAD' shit is right-wing media propaganda to convince Middle England (or Wales ) that we're being overrun by gypsys and Arabs. Actually watch interviews with the representative of the Secular Society, he says that all this stuff about 'banning Christmas' because it offends people of other faiths is rubbish, it's just blown out of proportion by journalists to make you buy more of the Daily Mail.

The War on Christmas is made up. The amount of people that actually give a shit is freakishly tiny. It's been blown out of proportion by local news stations who have nothing else to report during the holiday season.

You sir are correct.

We've already lost our British stamp that has the image of Jesus on it.

Our Bible is cast out to the 'top' shelf in libraries also so Muslims are not offended.

It sickens me what Britain is becoming as a result of islamification and colonization.

I'm not even religious, it is the principle that another religion can suppress anothers religion in a country that ultimately is not bloody theirs!

ITT: Hate. Wow.

There's a remarkably tiny handful of people who actually complain about this stuff. A whole lot more ignore it, and even more than that live in constant fear that the arguments they've made up in their heads will come down on them (they won't).

Now me, I can't stand Christmas, and I wouldn't be sad if it all... went away. But if you tell me "Merry Christmas" as I'm leaving Wal-Mart, I'll smile and say "you too."

First of all, lol for getting all up in arms about colonisation when what do you think the British Empire was built on?!

Explain to me why it's any more 'yours' because you happened to be born here. Islam is for the most part not suppressing anything. It's just spin to sell tabloids and gain votes for minority parties, it's all ultimately about getting your money. They're not telling you facts about it. Stop bloody listening to Nick Griffin. If you're so concerned with how religion is affecting our way of life then you ought to be championing secularisation rather than wasting your energy hating one particular religion.

The British Empire is the best thing the world has ever witnessed of the human race. It's such a shame so much land and law was given away.

I used the word ultimately loosely as what I was grasping was not exactly true to everyone and only a half painted picture of what I was portraying.

How do you know I was born in the UK. I could be a French migrant.


I don't mind religion, but seriously there is a problem with it, more so with Islam and Muslims.

It's not working.

I'm not a hater. I like to think of myself as a rookie understander of other peoples downfalls. Especially those of my countrymen's ethos.

All history cast aside, I still think 'outsider' religion in another peoples country is wrong. It's just wrong.
