Not Done Yet

I'm gonna rant some more where the previous post is concerned.

In taking a minute to consider it, I'll stand by what I said, but it occurs to me that some libtard is likely to throw an anti-Semite tag at it. 'Scuse me while I laugh at that idea. I've been honored to visit Israel 3 times and it's one of my favorite places. The country is beautiful and the people are the best.

Let me get down to why the Christmas tree versus Menorah thing pisses me off.

The Menorah is a symbol of Jewish faith. The Christmas tree is a tree with lights and decorations on it. I challenge you to show me where and how a tree with decorations on it is an overt religious symbol. (Cue the sound of crickets chirping) You can't, can you? Nope, not even close. Now, if the airport in question is displaying a Judeo-Christian cross as a part of this celebration, it becomes a different issue. In that case, yes, a request to add a Menorah is appropriate. If there is no overt Judeo-Christian symbology involved in the display, then the good Rabbi and his attorney deserve a big steaming cup of STFU.

Couldn't agree with you more. Total BS.
