Update: Christmas Wins, Jews Lose!

The Christmas Trees are back at SEA-TAC *LINK*
Airport managers believed that if they allowed the addition of an 8-foot-tall menorah to the display, as Seattle Rabbi Elazar Grinchstein Bogomilsky had requested, they would also have to display symbols of other religions and cultures,...
Of course. Feed one crybaby, and the whole societal nursery begins to wail.
Port officials received word Monday afternoon that Bogomilsky's organization would not file a lawsuit at this time over the placement of a menorah, Davis said in a statement.
Translation: "just wait 'til the furor dies down, and then you'll be sorry."
Davis added that the rabbi "never asked us to remove the trees; it was the port's decision based on what we knew at the time."
Of course the rabbi didn't ask for the tree removal. That's what he hired the lawyer to do. It's called 'plausible deniability'.
"A key element in moving forward will be to work with the rabbi and other members of the community to develop a plan for next year's holiday decorations at the airport," the port statement said.
Brilliant! Open the floodgates to clutter the place up with every kind of minority religious symbol imaginable, while Christmas is relegated to a few strategically placed unoffensive snowflakes.
"We are not going to be the instrument by which the port holds Christmas hostage," Grad said,...
Too late for that claim.
Not buying it...nope... Not me.
emphasizing the rabbi never sought removal of the trees,
Of course not. That was your job,remember?
The rabbi had received "all kinds of calls and emails," many of them "odious,"...
Maybe that's because people like me are fed up with people like you (who cry,bitch,moan and sue like you do?).
...adding he was "trying to figure out how this is consistent with the spirit of Christmas."
We already know litigating Christmas out of our culture is consistent with the tolerant spirit of judaism. So what was your point?

Some Hindu group will want to have a cow roaming around the airport, all decorated up, spewing methane all over the place.

The scary thing is that all this liberal crap is starting to sound like the UN (offend no one & please everyone) and we know where the UN's headed.
