*sigh* People choosing to celebrate Christmas as a secular holiday does not imply insult to Christians nor does it diminish the religious significance they place on it. Christmas is a federal holiday which makes it a secular holiday. Most of us who are not religious do not intend any insult when we celebrate family and friends and love in a secular manner. The only thing I ask is that my tax money not pay for religious anything and that people not be forced to worship in any way if they don't want to. How that insults anyone is beyond me. I apply the same to every other religious group, so really not persecuting anyone. I don't care enough about religion to bother with hating any of them.
