The Red Cross bans Christmas

Christine Banks, a volunteer at a Red Cross shop in New Romney, Kent, said: 'We put up a nativity scene in the window and were told to take it out. It seems we can't have anything that means Christmas. We're allowed to have some tinsel but that's it.
'When we asked we were told it is because we must not upset Muslim's.'
I try to not delve into religion very often, I believe to each  their own and as long as what you believe does not interfere with what I believe we will be fine. But I am now OFFENDED that you are OFFENDED because of a long standing tradition is now taboo, it is one religion bowing to another. How many Christians donate to the red cross, many. Well Guess what Red cross you are going to alienate many of the people who donate to you and who is it going to hurt? The people who really need it the most. I could understand not having any decorations if this was the way you always ran the operation but it is not, you are not neutral as you have now bowed down to a religion that would have us all back in the stone age, SHAME ON YOU .

That is so fucking retarded it just may temporarily leave me speechless.

Not likely though.
Fuck that and fuck them.Freedom of religion. There are these things called letters and if you put them in the right order, they actually convey thoughts.

Once they are in that certain order, it's kind of hard to change the meaning of those thoughts, unless you work for a news source or the fucking government.

There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of freedom of religion going on in this country anymore. It offends someone. The RED CROSS started as a Christian symbol for humanitarian aid. It is a Christian based organization, although people of all faiths use it. Put up the Christmas scene. It will bring in more donations. The Muslim countries have the RED CRESCENT. If they don't like the Christmas scene they can donate to the RED CRESCENT. Israel has the RED MOGAN DAVID, yet it is not recognized internationally because the Muslim countries complained. Therefore, when working outside of Israel the Jewish international symbol is a RED DIAMOND.
To my Christian friends, I hope you have a very merry Christmas.
