Back to Pitman. Told you we would be spending some time there today. So for 45 years, the Knights of Columbus have hung a Private Sign that says, "Keep Christ in Christmas." For 45 years, no one complained. This year, an Religiously Bigoted, close minded, hate filled FOOL from Wisconsin contacts the Mayor of Pitman NJ, and says some "Unnamed Residents" are offended and want the Sign taken down. Moron.
So, Christ-Mass or Christmas, is the day set aside by those who understand, to worship the Birth of our Lord Jesus, THE Christ. His NAME is in the Name of the Holy day, aka Holiday. If it were not for Christ, it would not be called CHRISTmas.
But this Moron from Wisconsin CLAIMS someone in Pitman contacted him and wants the sign removed. No names. Proof, NO Constitutional Bases whatsoever. Just one Moron from out of Town attempting to Dictate to the Mayor of another Town, in another State, what he can and can't display.
Our Winner of the Display of Logic Award goes TO that Mayor for his response to this Ignorant Jackass.
The town’s mayor says the sign is attached to private property and hanging over a county road.He will not be taking it down. Good for him. More on this Moron in a bit.
“I think it’s a sad state of affairs that our country, we kowtow to the minority and not the majority of people who like that sort of thing to stay,” said Mayor Michael Batten.
Look, you don'[t like Christmas? Don't participate. I have Jehovah Witness friends that do not Celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Birthdays, Whatever. But they do not go around telling everyone that they are not allowed to. They simply do not participate.
If you are offended by Christ in Christmas, then you may want to rethink the 4th of July if the Military Offends you. Do not accept the Day off for Presidents Day if you are offended by this Country the Way it is Founded. Keep your opinions to yourself. Create your own Holiday, like, I don't know, Festivus. I will respect your Holiday, you respect mine.
Congratulations Mayor Michael Batten, for standing up for what is right, for telling the Truth, and NOT "kowtowing to the Minority" or in this case One Idiot, "and not the majority of people who like that sort of thing to stay,” you ARE the Winner of the Display Of Logic Award, for Today, Sunday, December 18, 2011. I only wish MORE Public Officials were not so Cowardly to not do the same.
