Clearly Catholics hold the patent on Christmas trees --- all you Jewish, Kwanzans, and Saturnalia people are just SOoL.

It is not your holiday.

Is Hum on the offensive against North Carolina, or have N.C. just taken an overly-P.C. view towards things recently?

Again, this is ridiculous. Not that they changed it back, but that they felt that they needed to censor the word "christmas" in the first place.

The ADF aren't Government-enforced. As such, they are allowed to defend whomever they want. Now, does it mean that if the ADF are defending you that you are automatically right? Not at all. You still need to comply with the Government's rules. In conclusion, who cares whether the ADF defend one group of people more than another? They don't make the rules, they need to follow them and (if you're a lawyer worth your salt) find the loopholes in the rules to back your client's position up.

Well, if you look at the history of trees at Christmas it has nothing to do with Christ.

I was expressing a little sarcastic humor. ;)

Doesn't matter to me who buys an evergreen tree, and decorates it.

Not entirely -- the evergreen tree is symbolic of eternal life, which Christ tried to teach, that all humans surrvive -- even after 'death'.

And the lights and other decorations represent the richness of the Universe -- the myriad of Possibilities.

And gift giving represents the love and caring we should all have for each other.

And we should learn, that when we give unto others, we give to ourselves. :happy:
