It comes up a lot this time of year, about how people don't mind if other religions are "allowed" (wow, how gracious of you) to celebrate their own holidays or have their own holiday/religious symbols displayed, but ONLY if Christian symbols are also included. They say that having symbols of Hanukkah or EID but not including one for Christmas is discriminating. When are ALL the symbols of EVERY religion ever included anywhere? Aside from this time of year, when trees, wreaths, holly, ivy, yule logs and candles start showing up, the symbols of my faith are pretty much never included in anything. And when those things do appear, most people assume (or insist) they are Christmas symbols, not Yule.
Kemetic symbols, Native American, even representations of Taoism are pretty much never included in any "all inclusive" display. Why is it that's ok, but if you leave out a symbol of Christianity at any time, Christians are being discriminated against? Watch this, and ask yourself, how often do you see every single one represented at one time:Answer Question

Some Christians think their religion rules all other religions & if any other religious symbol is displayed but not theirs...then somehow it's wrong & discriminatory because it is lacking the "true" religion. Some take it as heresy or something...
