What day is it? "It's Christmas!" What are we celebrating? "Jesus' birthday!" and God's gift to man. If you don't believe this, fine. You don't have to. But let us have our beliefs and traditions. You can have yours, too, if there are any, whenever you choose and we won't bother you.
But it is up to those in power to stop this insanity. Legislators, governors, mayors, judges - they can do something. I'm sure they are not all "Christophobes". And we have to let them know that we are unhappy and want some changes.
When I was in grade school, the big bullies became cowards and backed off when confronted by a gang of us.
