So,,,let me see if I have this right. Any Holiday celebrated in this country must not have any religious affiliation. So what do we call Passover? Kwanzaa? Ramadan? Hanukah? St. Patrick's Day? Valentine's Day?...or is it only the Holidays that the US government observes by granting a day off from work? It certainly does appear that only seemingly "Christian" religious affiliation is under attack here as there has been no mention of changing the names of other holidays with other religious affiliations. As for the argument that holidays "recognized" by the government should not have any religious affiliation well, that certainly doesn't apply to Easter as this always falls on a Sunday and is not observed as a day off by the government.
