    Ken Owen is being an attention grabber again, without cause.This really isn't an issue. Each year when the weather gets cold both the extremes come out to play on this issue.Most of us can walk around just fine and say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays or simply "how do you do", or a "have a nice day".Happy Solstice, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa.... Seasons greetings etc. These are all fine too. Its awfully nice of someone to go out of their way to wish you happiness and greetings at all. Why pick it apart to see if they included your particular form of celebration?If Christ is the most important thing to you during this time, then by all means wish everyone you see a Merry Christmas. Just remember how lucky you are to live in country that gives you the right to believe what you want and worship who and how you want.

    Why keep "Christ" in Christmas? It's not like he was born on December 25th anyways.

    There is nothing that prevents ANY of these things today in law or policy. For example, a school can decide on their own if they want to hold a Christmas play. Ken Owen is trying to make up issues to try and force the issue, to get attention, or possibly seek donations.Meanwhile, there is a petition in Sacramento that aims to FORCE schools to hold Christmas plays, and children who don't want to participate can go "work on another activity". Is this really what we want in our public schools?

    Keep Christ in your heart, mind, home, and church. Keep him OUT of government, including City Council meetings and public schools to the extent that he is emphasized more than or to the exclusion of other belief systems. City Council members can exercise their own religious beliefs in public, but not while performing their duties as members of the Council. Ken Owen should read the Constitution.
