Christmas Controversy & Opinion Visit Defend Christmas.com Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree. Modern Christmas celebration has it's complications -- schools are divided, some Christmas light displays are too much, some even argue that it is better to call it a "holiday" tree. Some merchants won't even say "Merry Christmas"! Where there is controversy, there is insanity. Even in Christmas.

That's odd. Was the university president Jewish as well? Otherwise I have a hard time seeing how the radio host's comments about there being no Christmas tree could be seen as anti-Semitic.

Some people go through life looking to be offended... and the guys with the fattest pocket books call the shots in some cases...

The irony here is this money guy, in his own way, by throwing his weight around and forcefully trying to suppress this DJ's traditional Christian views, which he finds offensive, is acting in a manner similar to that which caused the Holocaust in the first place...

Sad...

Keep the christmas tree... keep the menorah... add whatever symbols Kwanzaa, Buddhism and Ramadan use... get over yourself... it's the season of peace...
