Christmas Trees are a Threat

They’re pulling down the Christmas tree in the lobby where I work because “it might offend somebody”.

If we sweep every cultural icon that “might offend somebody” under the rug, what will be left of our culture?

Unfortunately, it does little good to complain that pulling down a Christmas tree offends me.

Apparently, the offense caused by REMOVING cultural icons is acceptable if it alleviates the possible offense caused by DISPLAYING them.
