Is your paper being so politically correct that it can’t even use the word Christmas for the tree-lighting and parade event Saturday, Dec. 1?
This is the Christmas season in celebration of the birth of Christ — and if that rankles the feathers of some Muslims, then so be it. This is our country, and it was founded on Christian beliefs, and we should never forget that.
Muslims may come to our country and practice their beliefs freely, but they don’t have the right to force their beliefs down our throats and force us to set aside our beliefs and customs.
It is idiotic that schools are being told they can’t sing carols in school, yet if you look at the façade of the Supreme Court building, at the very top is a carving of Moses holding the scroll of the 10 Commandments.
• Editor’s note: The city of Tracy called the downtown event on Saturday, Dec. 1, which included a tree lighting and a parade, the Hometown Holiday celebration.
