22 16x16 Rhode Island Governor Insists on Calling It a Holiday Tree

Taking a cue from Wisconsin, Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chaffee is calling Rhode Island’s state tree a “holiday tree”, despite a resolution passed by the State Legislature earlier in the year declaring that the tree customarily erected this time of year be referred to “as a ‘Christmas tree’ and not as a ‘holiday tree’ or [...]

That governor is just as useless in this life as the college professor who said sending care packages to the troops was wrong because they're all murderers.

If the President can have a White House Christmas Tree, why can't the Governor of Rhode Island?

It's not a Christmas tree in the White House this year either, it is a holiday tree but the media won't talk about it.

It’s not a holiday tree or even an ‘X-mas’ tree,” he said. “We’re a Christmas tree farm, that’s what the name is.”
Chafee insists he’s just respecting the state’s history as a place respectful of all religions.
long deep sigh......

none of the other celebrations at this time of the year use a decorated pine tree as part of their decorations. Only the celebration of Christmas does.
He is not respecting anyone by calling it a holiday tree and then telling people to not argue about it. He is disrespecting all those who love the Christmas season and all the fun it brings including decorating a Christmas tree.

I wonder what the reaction would be if he told Jews they must call the Menorah a candle holder so that others would not be offended at that term?
I know it sounds silly, but then so is calling a Chrismtas tree by another name.
