Don't Visit Ft. Collins, Colorado

Can I call them or what!?! In my previous blog, I wondered when the first city would be sued over a nativity. I didn’t have too wait long – it’s starting in Ft. Collins, CO: only they’re not being sued and it’s not about a nativity. According to WorldNetDaily, “A special task force in a Colorado city has recommended banning red and green lights at the Christmas holiday because they fall among the items that are too religious for the city to sponsor” [emphasis added].

Now, I’m not a biblical scholar or anything, but I’m pretty sure there’s nothing in the Bible about red and green lights. They’re not part of any religious ceremony that I’m familiar with. They certainly were not present at Christ’s birth. Yet they’re still too religious! Incredible.

Did it ever occur to this task force that the city DOES display red and green lights year round? Only normally, we call them “traffic lights.”

Come one people. Think about it. There’s nothing overtly religious about the colors red and green. It just so happens that people associate them with Christmas, and if someone sees red and green lights, he might think about Christmas, and if someone thinks about Christmas, he might think about Christ! Gasp! We can’t have that now, can we?

The story goes on to say that Christmas symbols will be allowed in a “multicultural display” at the Ft. Collins Museum. A museum of all places - how appropriate. Imagine a teacher leading a class past such a display. “Look children, these are artifacts from back when people believed in God.”

I just read this post, but I'm still left speechless at the level of absurdity. There is something seriously wrong with people.
