Quote Of The Week

"To avoid any controversy and to satisfy this gentleman's concerns, the ornaments were removed,"

Jim Toomey, public information officer for Sonoma County, California

This was in response to a complaint from an atheist about an angel at the top of a Christmas tree in the county recorder's office.

At what point are we going to stop letting one individual like this dictate what the majority wants?

I can even go with banning prayer at county meetings, this is an overt endorsement of religion, but an angel on a Christmas tree?

We need to stop this insanity.

So let me get this straight...

One atheist cries about an angel and the WH yanks it, but tons of Americans complain about the Mao ornament/ Mt Obamamore, ect. and THOSE get to STAY?!?

Yet on the National tree we can see ornaments celebrating communism, homosexuals, and the progress of changing history... Nice.

Pardon my French, but until conservatives grow a pair and tell these people and their lawyers that we will not comply with their idiotic demands, they will continue to push the envelope. That is what they do and they have all the time in the world.

They accuse us of being narrow minded but their small mindedness and pettiness is beyond absurd.

Sorry all, I'm an idiot. I looked at my blogs for yesterday and today and thought no one has visited. Then I realized I put it on moderation when I went away for the weekend.

Brooke, agreed. Parents all over the country complain about not having a Christmas program, it's ignored. The only religious refernce allowed on college campus' are prayer mats facing Mecca...

Leslie, any irony to having Mao on a Christmas tree? A man who was effectively an athiest on a tree celebrating the birth of Christ. Only libs would be able to do something as ridiculous as this.

The person that put this there needs to be waterboarded with water from the tree.

Cube, agreed. They do what they do because they can.

Shoprat, there are few that are as narrow minded as liberals

Give the whining Moonbats what they want and we can go back to pretending to serve the people. Yeesh!

Here's a quote I love, though, describing the American people: " ... a people Jealous of their Liberties and who will vindicate them, if ever they should be violated."
