Who Says Majority rules??

Well, Democracy is lead by the majority.  Or is it.

WE hear more and more some minority group winning what they want, and i am not talking about

discrimination.

My nephew was telling me tonight that they are not allowed to wish anyone Merry Christmas.

It supposedly offended a couple people who are not Christians.

You can say Happy Holidays.

 

Well I used to, but nt any more.

I always say Merry Christmas. And I will not be told that I can not wish someone with those words.

 

It is sad that a few are able to put restrictions on what we can say.

For me I tell these people that I am offended that I am not able to wish someone

Merry Christmas.

Looks like now we are both offended.

 

 

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!  To one and all

Sorry for the rant, but this really upset me when I heard it.

I will be calling the school on Monday and talking to administration and then at the next school board meeting

The cartoon says it all, William! We are on the same page with regards to this issue. It's so sad that words can now hurt half of the population. Whatever happened to 'sticks & stones...'???

MERRY CHRISTMAS!! 🎄

Dear William,

As a lifelong outsider, I have celebrated all kinds of holidays with my friends. It does not offend me to hear Merry Christmas or any other kind of greeting.

that cartoon says it all.... I'm in full agreement with you William Feela

If someone says Happy Hannakah, Happy Kwanzaa, Merry Christmas or something else, it's all wonderful. They are just sharing their good wishes.

Good for you for taking a stand.

Morning William.

Yes sir, the PC police are in full force.  There are advantages to growing old.  I say what I want and I don't worry about the consequences

Good morning Willliam. So much "political correctness" we have caused "social chaos"! So much for proper democracy! Enjoy your day!

I like Kat Palmiotti 's comment. Take it in the spirit it was given.  I grew up with Christmas spirit and I enjoy wishing others a Merry Christmas.  

Merry Christmas to you and your family William Feela ! 🎄

Loved that cartoon, William. But a bit of a sad commentary on our society at the same time.  No one has yet had the nerve to stop me from saying Merry Christmas. Shame isn't it that these days it's often more acceptable to use the S or F word than to say Merry Christmas.

I enjoy people wishing me a positive greeting from whatever religion they may believe and support. I don't believe wishing someone a Merry Christmas is a negative and I never will think that...

You bring a  touchy subject to light.  And you didn't dwell on it.

I am in full agreement with what  you are saying.

Posted by Vern Eaton, Realtor 651-674-7449 8 months ago

Good morning William. I never got this. I don't celebrate Christmas but am never offended by Merry Christmas. If I don't know that someone is Christian I might say Happy Holidays but any nicety is a blessing.

We have a very diverse population in our area but few are offended when they are wished a Merry Christmas. Some of our Jewish friends have very nice Christmas trees.

First let me wish you a Merry Christmas, William!  I must tell you that I have a very good East Indian friend.  She's a girl of full Indian decent, who was born and raised in Australia.  She is of the Sikh faith, and although dressed in a beautiful saris, when we worked at a software company together, she thought we ought to close up shop and go to the pub at 2:00 am each afternoon.  She also happens to love Christmas, and puts up a gorgeous tree.
