Oh my RMB, look at what's back in the news:

REGINA -- Bah! Humbug!

"A Saskatoon man is filing a complaint with the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission (SHRC) after city councillors agreed Monday that city buses will continue flashing "Merry Christmas" during the holidays and not messages from other religions.

After local atheist Ashu Solo complained last December that the Christian message was "discriminatory" and "violates the separation of religion and state," Saskatoon's executive committee members referred the issue to the cultural diversity and race relations committee.

The committee met in January to determine if other religious messages could be added to the scrolling destination signs on city buses, but couldn't come to a consensus.

Now that the city has decided to maintain the status quo, Solo confirmed he will be filing an official complaint with the SHRC in March -- Saskatoon's Cultural Diversity and Race Relations Month."

Gee, no mention of a problem with the use of tax dollars!

Twitless RMB once again shown to be out of touch with the facts.

Sucks To Be You!

Twitlessly posted:

"Ashu Solo (is he an immigant, I don't know...you guess) who is planning a lawsuit againt the city to prevent Merry Christmas from being displayed on city busses."

Well Crusher you really should get the story correct before you spread your hate.

This man is saying the buses should not be using tax dollars, and more specifically his to put the message on the bus.

I have a friend working in the UAE who says they have many decorations up and ALL wish everyone 'Merry Christmas'. So it would seem it is only the politically 'sensitive' westerners who are the ones who have a problem with the sentiment. We are our own worst enemy. MERRY CHRISTMAS to all!

Merry Christmas all!

For those or us old enough to remember you just have to walk around your city and businesses to see Christmas isn't dead but certainly wounded.

There are no where near the houses there us to be lit up, the stores don't decorate like they use to.

All because a very small minority are against it.

As a society and culture who has always celebrated Christmas, we should not have to worry if it upsets someone who doesn't follow it.

They don't care if they upset us.

Maybe to update our Christmas story Scrooge should be more of an Asian or Middle East character so we are more "Politically Correct",

All immigrants not agreeing with us CANADIANS wanting to celebrate Chrismas should be deported. This celebration has been around Canada longer than immigrants have been migrating to Canada. If you don't agree with it go back to the hole you came from. We don't go to YOUR country and tell your people what to celebrate. well don't do it here in Canada.

Jesus was born in the spring, but who cares? Christmas was a pagan holiday until the pope stuck his nose in. Christmas is a celebration of the sun returning north again, that's the christmas spirit that I celebrate. Dead men, especially one that has decomposed for 2000 years, will not be coming back alive. If you believe that, then you will believe the world ended 2 days ago. It's all superstition. Santa Claus is just as real.

"Is cultural sensitivity killing Christmas"? Yes!"

No. Christmas and the Christmas spirit is very much alive. Right wingers want to say otherwise just to get the racists comments going.
