The War on Christmas and religion continues…
A senior apartment complex in Newhall, California is banning their resident’s community hall Christmas tree because it’s um … a reminder that some people do still celebrate religious holidays.
Via the LA Daily News (h/t Drudge):
Residents in a Newhall senior apartment complex are protesting an order from management to remove their beloved Christmas tree from the community room because, they were told, it’s a religious symbol.
On Tuesday, Tarzana-based JB Partners Group Inc. sent a memo to staff at The Willows senior apartment building demanding they take down Christmas trees and menorahs in communal areas.
The company has owned The Willows for four years, but this is the first time it’s given such a directive to staff.
On Wednesday, two dozen residents in the 75-resident complex gathered in the lobby to place a neon green sign that read: “Please Save Our Tree.”
“We’re all angry. We want that tree,” said Fern Scheel, who has lived at the complex for nearly two years. “Where’s our freedom? This is ridiculous.”
Silly woman, there are no religious freedoms for Christians in America anymore. Only for those who oppose Christianity, the Bible, Christmas, etc.
Here’s an interesting social experiment, Fern. Go ahead and place a Koran in the middle of your Community Hall. Then sit back and dare the owners of your apartment complex to go ahead and touch it. Let me know what happens.
