First Democrats wanted to remove God from their party platform, now they want to remove Christmas.

We all know that the Democratic Party is a godless institution because Liberals, Socialists and Communists are godless people and they carry so much weight among Democrats. The Democrats made a big deal out of trying to remove the name of God from the party platform during their national convention and almost succeeded after three very loud voice votes were overruled by the platform chairman. Liberals hate anything that has to do with most religions except Islam. Christians and Christmas has been their favorite target for several years demanding sales staff to stop wishing customers Merry Christmas. I think that liberals must have invented the Politically Correct movement. Now I read that the governor of Rhode Island, a very liberal ex-Republican who got elected last year as an Independent has cancelled the lighting ceremony of the Christmas Tree at the state capitol. Last Christmas Governor Lincoln Chafee ordered the name changed from Christmas Tree to Holiday Tree because it was more politically correct to do so. 
Rhode Island Governor Pulls Plug on Tree Lighting

Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee has pulled the plug on the state’s annual tree lighting ceremony one year after he created a yuletide controversy by changing its name to a “holiday” tree.

The governor’s spokeswoman did not give a reason for the decision. But last year his office was flooded with thousands of telephone calls protesting the name change. Many citizens accused the Independent governor of trying to secularize Christmas.

At the time, Chafee said the name change was meant to honor the state’s origin as a sanctuary of religious tolerance.

Last year State Rep. Doreen Costa launched what became an act of yuletide defiance — she brought her own Christmas tree and held a protest lighting. Costa said she is going to do the same thing this year.

“I’m sick of being politically correct,” she told Fox News. “Nobody’s been offended by calling a Christmas tree a Christmas tree. If we have a Menorah in the State House, what are we going to call it – a candle with sticks?”
