It depends where the icon is, really. If it's in your home or on your lawn, if you have a religious bumper sticker on your car, if there's a Christian display at a Christian school, etc., then it's more than appropriate.

It's when courthouses, public schools, and other similar structures endorse the beliefs of a single religion we start to take offense.

You wouldn't see somebody telling a Jew to put out the candles on their Menorah or to get rid of their yamaka. Why is it always an attack on Christians?

MFW everyone in the comments.

Seriously, we get it. Go find something new about our religion to complain about.

Wait is the tree in his house? If it's in his house I don't care if he has mutilated doll heads hanging from it, it's his choice. Even if its outside on his property, everyone has a right to express their religion. I'm not religious but if I want a god damn nativity scene I'll put up a god damn nativity scene. If the tree was on the front lawn and had a sign around it that was like "CONVERT OR YOUR FIRST BORN SHALL BE BURNED ON YOUR OWN MENORAH" then I see the issue, but something as simple as a tree is no ones god damn business.

The worst is wishing someone "Merry Christmas" cause if they don't celebrate it; you'll get **** . I mean, why take offence when someone wishes you a merry Christmas? "Here, wish you a good time on this one ******* day of the year." If a Jewish person wished me a happy Hanukkah, I wouldn't get pissed I'd simply say "I don't celebrate it, but thank you anyway". Why do people get so worked up if you wish them a ************************************* ?

It is because those same stupid assholes do not understand the concept of wishing someone well simply for the sake of being nice. I personally do not celebrate Christmas because I am Shinto. However, if someone wishes me a Merry Christmas, I wish them one right back. Why? Because, they were being nice. No reason I should not do the same.

Fun Fact! Christmas isn't the only holiday that uses a pine tree to celebrate. In fact this tradition was first used by the pagans. But it is is the only religion to put a star on top.

Please please please don't think that all atheists are like yon derpette. I'm fine with your religion, just don't try to convert me. Every atheist I know of feels the same way.
I want to make this known.

I would like to make a clarification. An atheist is one who does no believe in any religion. An Antitheist is one who hates all religions and sees them as a cancer on society. However an Antitheist will call themselves an atheist simply because they see no difference. There are many types of atheist in the world. Gnostic, agnostic, implicit, explicit, broad, unfriendly, indifferent, etc. Each type has its own little quirks.

Ironic that America, a country founded for the purpose of religious freedom, has some of the most intolerant people on the planet. I'm not an openly religious person, but if I choose to celebrate Christmas, put up Christmas decorations, say Merry Christmas to people, or say something about God or Jesus and the Cosby Kids in public, I feel I shouldn't have to be stopped because a Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, etc. or even an Atheist, feels offended when they hear about beliefs besides their own.

Tree is a religious icon? I guess Santa Claus is also religious icon since some kids believe in it.

ALL HAIL SANTA!

Do people even get offended by Christmas? Where is all this coming from?
User avatar #17 to #15 - pebar (12/10/2012) [-]
It comes from politically correct douchebags.
Especially in stores or state funded organizations, people will say happy holidays instead of marry christmas (which i'm fine with). Public christmas trees are being asked to be removed from state buildings because people don't want tax payer money going toward a religion.
Which in my opinion is ******** . A giant christmas tree outside a public building would increase moral and productivity. A great use of tax payer money.

Anytime anyone says that they are offended by it, I just start shouting at them about how offended I am at them being offended.
