Take Your Pick - War Against Christmas or Ignorance
"[A] father asked the principal, 'What is that tree down the hall?' The principal beamed proudly. 'That is our friendship tree.' 'Why don't you call it what it is: a Christmas Tree?' the father asked. 'Oh, we're trying to make sure we don't offend people. It's better to call it a 'friendship tree,' the principal replied. Thinking back on the incident a few months later, the father took a grim satisfaction that he had changed the outlook of the principal of this expensive private school in the New York City suburbs. But not by argument or persuasion. 'I told him if that tree wasn't a Christmas tree tomorrow, I would be taking my son out of the school, and I would be making certain the other parents I know, who also pay tens of thousands of dollars to the school, would learn how their children were being taught incorrectly. We all know what a Christmas tree is, and I want my son to know what a Christmas tree is. I have no idea what a friendship tree is and I'm [quite] certain that principal didn't either." —John Gibson
