  • How about the rest of us?

    I see someone put up a religious picture of Jesus in the manger with a "Merry Christmas" on it.

    Will there be others that represent the rest of the holidays this time of year?

    Or was it intentional to leave out Kwanzaa and Hanukah and the Yule?

      I haven't seen the picture in question, but I don't understand why it would be responsibility of the person who posted it to provide representations of the holidays of those of other faiths. Wouldn't a Hanukah picture more appropriately come from a person of the Jewish faith, etc.?

        It's a part of the website, not posted by a member. Go to the main page of the messageboard and look under the "picture of the day".

          I see Merry Christmas at local stores in Bakersfield but I NEVER see happy Kwanzaa or Hanukah. But I am sure they are just catering to the majority or they themselves are Christians, with no intended offense to other faiths.

          Happy Hanukah! (no offense to Budists)

            That is a beautiful picture! I too would like to see the other religions represented. With the New Year fast approaching, how about some New Year ones too?

              Actually most stores use the term "Happy Holidays" so as to include everyone.

              Even Bush's cards that were sent off were generic. It totally pissed off the RRR.

                Though I do not consider myself a churchgoer or religious in any way, shape or form, I am an opponent of the assimilation of the holidays ("Holiday Tree," my eye), and I do believe that we should respect and recognize all faiths and beliefs during this time of year.

                  Well I'd like to know why it's called a Christmas tree when it's a pagan tradition. How did that happen?

                    Saying Merry Christmas at Christmas time is very appropriate.

                      MERRY CHRISTmas. We Christians, here in America, and elsewhere,are celebrating the birth of Christ, though many and myself include often get so wrapped up in the holiday approaching to remember that.MERRY CHRISTMAS.I mean to offend no-one,but am not affraid of offending anyone over this. That is what and who I beleive in and am proud of doing so.

                        It's on the main page of this forum. I am a bit troubled by it, only in that (the two that I have seen) have a heavy in-your-face religious theme. It puts this web site squarely in a particular camp, and can distance it from some others. If that is the message that the webmaster wants to send, so be it.

                          Not if you are Jewish.

                          Remember, 30% of the population isn't christian.

                          It's ok wishing from one to another but when representing or marketing to the general public you really need to try and include everybody.

                            Yes, it is. Saying Happy Hanukah is also appropriate. (But unusual from non-jewish.) The webmaster must be just sending a friendly message and he is probably a Christian. That is called freedom.
