just looking at the titles yes at least the one is a Christian school. I'll bet the other one is too. You can't even walk into the VA and preach the gospel, you must coordinate with the chaplain. Since the military is "uniform" I'd assume it is that way throughout the military. I do know you cannot place religious ornaments of any faith or perform any ceremony over the (military cemetery) dead unless it is your relative.


One thing that strikes me as media stokes this particular kind of outrage is our military personnel have always been more tolerant of diversity than the general public back home. During and before civil rights they were brothers in the field only to have mom say their buddy could not spend a night under her roof while on leave. I've actually seen that one happen.

WTF does this post have to do with the thread. And, why are you letting FOX news create another poutrage for you. Would you like to write the fuqing Christmas cards?

The same government whose Air Force and now the ARMY do not want you to say Christmas.

But as we know there is no war against Christmas, nor the meaning there of.

Do you ever try and comprehend what you are reading, or is it you just see my name and you immediately start to pee your pants?

Do you permanently have a soap-box attached to your feet?

First off, who are you talking to?
I didn't support A&E's decision to suspend Phil Robertson.

Secondly, you are proving Jon Stewart's point

Finally, this country is made up of less than 1% atheists.
It's not about "kwotowing to aethiests (sic)". It's about a significant number of Christians who understand separation of church and state.
Christians who have decided "I want my place of business to be about more people's holidays than just Christmas".

Huh? Employers who CHOOSE to have their employees say something INCLUSIVE like "Happy Holidays" are only trying to cover all of their bases. Saying Merry Christmas is exclusive. It excludes all jews, pagans, atheists, hindus, buddhists, muslims and more. You know, the other 25% of the country. Plus, it also covers New Years, you know... that OTHER holiday that occurs during the holiday season?

Try again.

Soooo Fox news fired or suspended someone at Fox FOR NOT SAYING "Merry Christmas"?
I'm just trying to compare apples with apples here.
yes or no is the answer to that question.

A&E suspended someone for what they said -off the show- right.
Did Fox do that?
Yes or no?


if not where's the horrible hypocrisy?
I'm no apologist for Fox news, there's plenty of double standards to be pointed out at Fox and MSNBC but I'm just not seeing this one.
