I like how Halloween is completely secular, and chistmas is almost there. Instead of it being a holiday to celebrate some people's religion, it could be a celebration of family and gifts! I dare you to find someone offended by family and gifts.

Hey this reminds me of Belgium. The country where being Belgian is considered racist.

The red bulbs represent the apples from the Tree of Life, and the sins that Jesus took with him on the cross, which is the tree

False.

The bible makes no mention of apples and Christmas is a pagan holiday.

Um, Christmas trees have nothing to do with religion, as a Christan you don't seem to even know much about your own religion?

Also no one gives a **** , the war on Christmas is fake.

The comic muddies the waters. It isn't about being offended by other peoples beliefs it's about equal representation. A Christmas tree in a person's house is one thing, but in public it's entirely another.

If any willing theists' religious symbols are denied in place of the Christmas tree then it constitutes religious inequality. Do you think that if your city was asked to put up [insert religion]'s symbols equally alongside Christian ones that that would fly?

The only way to have a Christmas tree in public and not constitute religious inequality is to either; be of a community that has a relevant total religious solidarity (and a government that isn't supposed to favor one religion over another, like the U.S. government) OR allow all other religions, that want their symbols shown, to be shown in public with equal standing to the Christmas tree.

A third option is to not show any religious symbols in public at all. But I'd assume that all religions would rather share space than be banned completely, even for the sake of equality.

It isn't about some silly bitch being offended at the public display of a different belief than her's, that couldn't be further from the truth. It's about equal representation, the act of being equal to all beliefs no matter how small the percent of the population that holds them.

Except that it isn't just christian symbols, it's a part of our culture. Norway is one of the less religious societies, but everyone uses and relates to these things. It's a part of the western christmas celebration. I don't give a **** when the muslims have Ramadan as an example, because it's a part of their beliefs and culture. I respect them, and as we're in a country with freedom of religion and speech, they sure as hell should respect our traditions.

BUut if Christmas is not originated from Christianity but rather a pagan religion/ceremony, why would atheists still celebrate it? Why? Why? Because, let say, if a Christian fellow inviting the atheist friend to come to church, not to participate but rather as a guest, then it will be called as imposing our believe unto yours. Let say, if a religious person saying "God exists and you are going to hell.", it will be called as imposing our believe unto yours, but at the same time you celebrated a pagan/extinct religion's ceremonies or in other words, other people's believe/faith. My words actually if you don't believe in faith, do not celebrate it, christmas, easter, whatever it is as long as it still related to other's faith including the extinct.

ok really, at least in America, it does shout that. but the whole thing about the girl being intolerant is true. he has a right to practice religion
what I think America dreams of promoting is no single one religion, but all religions fairly and equally. this means people of each religion (Christianity is a religion too) has the right to practice their practices (to a certain extent of course. no killing others or something like that)

Further more the chrismas tree dosnt have any thing to do with the bible or religion. Its merely a tradition.
