This doesn't concern me in any way. I don't find it important to anything in the world and think it's petty but I want to point something out.
Muslims are not often offended by Jesus, they revere Jesus. If they are offended by Christmas themes it's because Christmas is a fake holiday and any
sensible Christian would agree that Christmas seldom represents Christianity so you need to set this idea of "Christmas" over there on one side and
the set the idea of "Christianity" way way way over there somewhere because you are merging the two... and as a Christian I find it offensive that you
associate Christianity with a tree.
Secondly, for all we know from this article, it could have been decided against because it was messy.... because if you'll pay attention, they still
get a Christmas decoration to represent the holiday itself so maybe you need to pay attention to the fact that other officials said this was NOT to
placate Muslims.... and that the whole article is simply what this person assumes. It says that is it what she "believes" more than once.
So this is basically just this person's interpretation.
Yeah, well... who cares.
I think someone just thought the other exhibit was cooler and wanted to replace a tree.
There's nothing really Christian about cutting down a tree and putting lights all over it. Quite frankly I think cutting down Christmas trees is a
stupid and wasteful practice and my family has always used fake trees. I don't put up a tree at all because yeah, it's pretty but whoever says "You
have to have a CHRISTMAS TREE" is some kind of person indeed! OH MY GOD WE'LL ALL DIE IF CHRISTMAS DOESN'T LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME EVERY YEAR AND THERE
ARE DEAD DECORATED TREES EVERYWHERE. WHERE'S MY PRESENTS?
What in the world is wrong with people?
The most important thing about Christmas is that people get time off to spend with their families and if you believe Jesus was born on that day.
Yeah, I like presents. Sure, I think St Nick is cool and yeah I LOVE Christmas cartoons but sitting around bitching about a tree isn't helping to make
MY Christmas experience any cooler or more original. I personally want to experience a virtual winter wonderland flying around with frosty the snowman
without being cold and standing outside in the cold staring at dead trees people hang lights on isn't doing it for me.
