    How about it offends ME! I’m a Christian! This country was founded on Christianity not Islam! When do we start considering how we are offending AMERICANS who are CHRISTIANS! I’m sick ad nauseam of what this country is ALLOWING to happen! No one objects! We just stand around and let it happen, one thing at a time — a nudge here, a nudge there.

    Lets face it man, the Communist are running our country from the White House down. Political Correctness is here to stay, World wide. All Patriots need to speak whats on their mind, out loud to anyone, anytime, everywhere or this place we call America is doomed. To Hell what the biased News Media prints or writes. I would venture to say that 80% of America is under Communist control right now. Just take a look around and look at how much regulation across the board and tax increases are imposed on us for everything we do and all this goes without mentioning increased Law enforcement. The Red Cross, yeah their Red alright, Communist Red.

    Hi, I work for the American Red Cross and I hope I can help straighten the facts up in this story. Here’s an excerpt from the British Red Cross blog that explains the situation:

    “Yesterday, we started getting some comments on our Facebook page from people angry with us for ‘banning Christmas’, which we haven’t, and the story now seems to be spreading on some American websites.

    It turns out that these people have stumbled across an article that appeared in the Daily Mail in 2002 and now forms part of the paper’s online archive. Unfortunately, the article isn’t dated on the Mail’s site, which had led some people to believe this was a current news story – although references in it to Sangatte, the Calais refugee camp that closed in 2002, do serve to date it. We denied the gist of the piece strongly at the time.

    Christmas is a major UK holiday and time of celebration, which is shared by people of all faiths and those of no faith. Many of our shops and offices are decked out in festive decorations around this time of year – we also sell a range of Christmas cards and gifts in our shops, both high street and online.

    It’s true that you won’t find explicitly religious items or displays, relating to any faith, in any of our shops, at Christmas or any other time. But this certainly doesn’t amount to a ban on us celebrating or mentioning Christmas, or any other holiday. And it’s absolutely nothing to do with “offending non-Christians” or to serve any other sort of politically correct agenda.”

    Thanks, hope this helps,

    Amrecro comments that the American Red Cross sells a range of Christmas cards and gifts in their shops but then goes on to say in the next paragraph that we won’t find any explicitly religious items or displays relating to any faith in their shops. Christmas cards celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. If I’m not mistaken that’s the basis of the Christian Religion. You sound like a politician of the worst kind. And why is it “American Red Cross”? America was founded on Religion. So maybe they should change their name. Don’t get me wrong, the Red Cross has done great things for our troops and citizens but don’t try and confuse us with a bunch of double talk if your confused on what Religion is. Oh one more thing, if people are donating their blood to you, why do you sell it to the hospitals? Hospital bills are expensive enough. Is that the American way?
