The war was started by the Right. They illegally install religious symbols on govt property and in schools. They also create illegal laws requiring silence or prayer in schools.

Most of the Framers intended to separate religion from the Constitution.

This is an annual "issue" that was made up long ago by Fox News and other far right-wind media. They see respect for other religions as taking something away from, or animosity toward their holiday.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free excercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech or press; or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Recognising a religion has nothing to do with establishing a religion. The meaning of Artical I pretained to someone like Henery the VIII proclaming that only his approved religion is the only religion to be practice in the relhem. The People have the right to express themselves in public and on public property, which in fact belongs to the people, just as the self loathing Occupy Wall Street, the Madison Wisconsin rable and "life has no meaning" atheist do.

People are making a big deal out of nothing. Celebrate christmas the way you want to and don't worry about how other people are celebrating. If you wanna say merry christmas, do it. But people shouldn't be criticized for saying happy holidays. We're all different people who come from different backgrounds and we should accept all of them.

Haha, hell no. And even if it was, is it so bad to wish the cashier 'Happy Holidays?' It in no way impacts how you yourself celebrate while possibly including your non-Christian compatriot!
