This country is getting "crazier" and "crazier" as time goes on. What is the deal with red and green lights? I can pick and choose any color or colors I want to celebrate this time of the year and as I read the constitution, that is my right. Of all the stupid things to ban, you would think that these people would go after the Christmas tree or wreath. Whatever is the case, this minority group does not have the right to take this away from others. What if the school has a muliti-colored lit tree that has reds and greens in it? Do they have to go in and take out these bulbs and replace them with other colors? If this whole deal is about teaching kids diversity, maybe some of these adults need to step back and see that their own attitude is "anti-diversive". All they are showing these kids is that it has to be done their way or no way at all. As I previously stated, I'm sure that this group is a minority, and in the USA, the majority wins. I can't understand why other parents don't stand their ground and fight this. All of us, at some time in our lives, will offend someone with something we do, say or think. This political correctness has gotten totally out of control. If someone offends you, walk away, turn it off or don't read it. It's exactly the same way that the tv monitors told the public back in the 70's --- if you don't like it, turn it off. In this day and age, there is nothing "neutral" and to try to make something like Christmas a neutral holiday would be to take the guts right out of it. Everyone needs to be taught that we all can respect other religions, but when it's done in this manner, it comes very close to a totalitarian style goverment. This is when " ... a government is controlled by one political group which suppresses ALL opposotion, often with force, and which controls many aspects of people's lives." Right now, every religious venu has been taken out of our public school system. These goof-balls are now moaning about the color of lights we can use to celebrate Christmas in school. I truly cannot believe it !!!
