    Rabbi Theatens Lawsuite, Christmas tree yanked

    What is wrong with people having problems with the Christmas tree! It is just sad that people dont have anything better to do.
    MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYBODY. And, if I may say so, I dont mean to offend anyone by this.

    the article i read said the rabbi REQUESTED to have a menorha in the airport. the airport did not want to do that, so they took down the christmas trees rather than concede to putting up one menorah.

    i stand corrected, looks like this article says he did threaten to sue..oh well.

    still to be fair, this isnt so much of an attack on christmas but rather he is offended that they wouldnt recognize his holiday. he didnt ask them to remove the trees, they made that decision themselves....

    According to cnn, the Rabbi theartened lawsuite. As a result they just yanked the christmas tree because they said, they did not have time to put a menorah. They decided to be on the safe side I guess....

    The United States government keeps no official register of Americans' religious status.[78] However, in a private survey conducted in 2001 and mentioned in the Census Bureau's Statistical Abstract of the United States, 76.7% of American adults identified themselves as Christian; about 52% of adults described themselves as members of various Protestant denominations. Roman Catholics, at 24.5%, were the most populous individual denomination. The most popular other faiths include Judaism (1.4%), Islam (0.6%), Buddhism (0.5%), and Hinduism (0.4%) and Unitarian Universalism (0.3%). About 14.2% of respondents described themselves as having no religion. The religious distribution of the 5.4% who elected not to describe themselves for the survey is unknown.
    from wikipedia.

    So, 1.4% should be represented, let put the menorah, what about the Islam, lets put something in there too, oh, what about the unknown, we dont want to hurt them, so lets just dont put anything at all. I m sure the 76% of Christians wont mind. It's just a tree anyway.

    i dont care either way, i just think to make a big fuss over this (for both the rabbi and the airport) is ridiculous. threatening a lawsuit is going too far, but also taking down 9 trees instead of just putting up a menorah is ridiculous, especially when you say the only reason you arent is becuase you dont have time(but you do have time to take down 9 trees).

    Why would a christmas tree offend anybody? They are gorgous and frankly a christmas tree holds no real meaning to christmas anyway.

    You are exactly right. There are those who wish to stomp out our traditions
    for various reasons I guess because, oh good grief, I cant even imagine what
    all the hoopla is about. Actually the "tree" springs from the lule log which was
    pagan in celebration of the winter soltice so its hardly a "Christian" thing.
    I think too many people dont have enough to do anymore. :D
