Ready, Set, Rant

This morning’s biggest news was;

Maryland’s biggest school district has stripped references to religious holidays from next year’s calendar, removing Christmas, Easter, Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah from the lineup of days off.

The first thing that came to mind is “those poor kids!”. A bunch of intolerant, miserable grown-ups can’t stop squabbling about their religions. Celebrating our traditions has become offensive to someone? We can’t get along and honour everyone’s beliefs?

I didn’t have kids but if I did, I would want them to learn about all the religions and let them decide what to think.

I get stuff on Facebook about people shaking their fists “I”m saying Merry Christmas, so f*#k you!”

We are all “Happy Holidays!” now, but wait…… isnt’ that HOLIday? “AAArrrrghhh!  We don’t want no ‘holi’ around here!”

C’mon, people, this is ridiculous….. this is why there is war!

  1. I completely agree! This “politically correct” stuff has just gotten way too out of hand… I mean, I’m not one to have anyone else’s religion pushed on me. But by closing government offices and businesses on Christmas day, simply because it’s called “CHRISTMAS DAY,” is too religious for some people?!… Honestly. This is what we’ve come to and I have to say, I’m pretty disappointed, too!

    Thanks for this soapbox post. A point well made! 🙂
