It's their right as a private organization. I suspect that their intentions are good (in trying to be more inclusive of other religions during the holidays). I support that decision for a different reason though; I am against all of the commercialism and fanfare that Christmas has turned in to. Christmas shouldn't be about some magical fat man that gives you presents if you are good, it should be about families and friends celebrating unity, brevity and love.
Pitiful...and sad!! Poor kids ..it's not like they believe for a long time. It seems they could enjoy some parades in the meantime.
I don't see why they can't just be honest and give it the proper pagan name of Yuletide, the Winter Solstice celebration which the Church hijacked. After all, the historical Jesus was actually born in October, no?
I would ban My Buiness with that Company.Yes It's their as a private Company not to have a Christmas Parade but It's MY right as a Customer not to do Buiness with them.
See ya! How dare they. I'm sure the city can start a campaign for everyone to give a dollar to make up for lost sponsorship. Since you know about it, get the link for the article. Put it here. I'll e-mail to friends and newsgroups. Sure others will too. Sooner or later the media will jump on it.
