I have an issue with this.
I thought we had a "separation of church and state"....and that is the reason we can't wish ANYone Merry Christmas, have Christmas parties, or mention Christ in our public schools! So, why can we mention Ramadan, Muhammad, etc.
My sister's kids attend public school. There was no Christmas Party (it was a Winter Blast), no Christmas Break from school (Winter Break), etc. When I asked the kids to sing Christmas carols, they didn't know any. However, they were very happy to sing me the Dreidel song and Happy Hannukah. How come they know those songs, and not "We Wish you a Merry Christmas?"
Where is the equality?
If they are not going to learn about Christianity, then they shouldn't be learning about Judaism, Islam, Hiduism, etc...until it's part of their studies when they are older.
Sometimes, I get so fed up with all of this. It's really sad.
I am all for not making fun of or inhibiting other faiths....but, don't inhibit the majority, either. Majority is Christian...why can't we celebrate Christmas openly? Why do we have to stop and think "who" am I speaking with? If I wish them Merry Christmas, I might not only offend them, but, be breaking the "rules"....and get in trouble.
Oh my gosh!
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
