This is from Brit Hume on Fox News Channel:
Here at home, the village of Glenview, Illinois, has ordered firefighters to take down the Christmas lights and Christmas tree inside their firehouse because some residents find them offensive. And the Affirmative Action Office at Central Michigan University has posted a "Christmas Warning" on its Web site, saying -- "It is inappropriate to decorate things with Santa Claus or reindeer or other 'Christmas decorations. ... Good ideas for decorations during this time are snowflakes [and] snowpeople." The warning made no mention of other holidays. A civil rights group complained, and the warning has since been replaced with a -- "suggestion... [to] please be sensitive and respectful of others of all cultural traditions."
Although it's been said many times, many ways, when, oh when, will we tell the cranks to butt out and let the rest enjoy their holidays. This isn't about sensitivity, it's about hypersensitivity, ugly and neurotic, trying to deprive people of their freedoms under the false guise of promoting civil rights.
