I've heard about the recent banning of the display of a Menorah at a public recreation center in Evergreen, while a lighted Christmas tree was allowed to remain. It's an absurd argument to say that the tree lights are not considered to be religiously affiliated! HELLO!!.... IT"S A CHRISTMAS TREE WITH CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!(do you see a theme developing here?)

Evergreen should reconsider their decision, as it's both foolish and antisemitic. If you’re going to ban religious holidays, you need to ban all of them... Christmas included!

I absolutely agree. I'm catholic. This seems to be a selective decision and it is not an example I want my kids to be part of. I have no idea how I to explain such ignorance.
