I don't see things like trying to take Christmas out of government areas as such a heinous attack on Christmas as much as following the separation of church and state and respecting others of different views. I also believe that for ANY religion. Neutral public places or churches are another thing altogether and I could care less about that.

Seems we have a little common ground here.
It sounds like the way we celebrate xmas is very similar, not all that like to say Merry xmas instead of happy holidays, or like public xmas displays are religious nuts for lack of better term.
