A Tale Of Two Trees
Behold! Pictured here are two trees. What are the differences between them?
I'll give you some hints.
One tree celebrates a modern religious tradition, the other tree comes from a forgotten religious tradition.
One is on private property, one is on public property.
The one on private property could never be put up on public property. The other is perfectly fine.
One tree is offensive to some people, the other is more fair to everyone.
One tree can be considered a violation of the First Amendment of the Constitution, the other would not cross the boundary between the Church and the State.
So now do you know?
The tree on the left is a CHRISTmas tree, the one on the right is a "Holiday Tree".
The tree on the left is a deliberate attempt to force religion down people's throats.
The tree on the right is a wonderful tradition that commemorates the winter holiday season.
Any questions? Just ask an atheist. They're the ones trying to redefine the Holiday Season to suit their tender sensibilities.
