Test case: Eliminate a holiday to pay for gov't. services

    Well, if France were to eliminate Christmas as a holiday it would also be a step toward “separation of church and state.” The next step would be for the government to stop any support(tax cuts, construction funding, tarriffs, etc.) for businesses that sell Christmas items.

    Let’s see how far the “eliminate a holiday” idea goes.
    I’d say one election cycle for every politician who suppports it!



  • It looks like they already have separated the holiday from religion:

    Transport Secretary Dominique Bussereau said he opposed abolishing…Christmas…not December 25 because I want Christmas presents," he said.

    “There’s no question of touching holidays,” thundered Communist lawmaker Alain Bocquet. “There’s no question of erasing May 8 and the memory of victory over Nazi barbarity and fascism!”

    Not even going to say anything about this one…too easy. 😉

    Note: Not all my commie friends are like that 😉
