Ah – interesting. I love these threads that make you go off, research, and learn stuff.

I’d agree with the 10 commandments rulings.

I’m iffy on the “Christmas trees on public property”. What of the “National Christmas tree”?
I think that in this day and age “Christmas” has lost most of its religious significance, and I’d judge the tree mainly decorative and cheery.

Kids writing christmas cards from the school to soldiers fighting in the middle east – aren’t there “Freedom of speech” implications in that? Isn’t the next step to stop “Merry Christmas” phone calls? If my kid had been told he couldn’t write “Merry Christmas” on a card to a soldier I’d be taking issue.
