Calling the 17-foot-tall spruce a holiday tree is in keeping with Rhode Island's founding in 1636 by religious dissident Roger Williams as a haven for tolerance, where government and religion were kept separate, independent Gov.

Yeah if they are going to call it a "holiday" tree then we might as well use it year around because it's no longer a symbol for Christmas.

P.s Chafee, You're an idiot! >B-(

It is a Christmas tree, for Pete's sake. Why is there an issue? I am not afraid of other religions displaying their religious symbols.

In fact, I find it quite fascinating.

It is comical, however, how liberal progessives like Chafee seem to protest that which they do not like. Fear? Guilt? What is it,
