“Holiday” Tree

How stupid

“It’s a holiday season for a whole bunch of people in the state of Wisconsin, even those that aren’t part of the Christian faith. I think it’s a more inclusive thing,” said Evers. “I know a lot of people love to have that debate, and I think it’s a good debate to have.”

[…]

Our Charles Benson asked Evers if his family called the tree in their home a “Christmas Tree” growing up, and Evers acknowledged that this was true but reiterated that the tree was in their home, not on the grounds of City Hall in Plymouth, Wisconsin.

There is only one holiday that uses a large, decorated, evergreen tree as part of its celebration… Christmas. It is a Christmas Tree even though other holidays are also happening in the same time period. Calling it a Holiday Tree is not inclusive. It is wrong and stupid.

    The European Christians stole the tree idea from which religions?

    Surely they didn’t use a pine in the Middle East.

    I’m surprised Evers isn’t bringing back Jim “Craps” Doyle’s Festivus pole considering every day features the Airing of Grievances.

    That’s the point, Dad29.  Christians don’t have any more claim on the tree than any respectable tree-worshiping pagan, do they?

    Jjf,

    You are an anti-Christian bigot.
