Christmas Beyond Tribalism

vjack from Atheist Revolution reminds us to respect our neighbors during Christmas season:

"To the legions of Christians, I'd like to point out that nobody is attacking your holiday. All we are asking is that you use some sensitivity in how you present it if you cannot refrain from public displays. If you let this become of divisive issue, then it seems that it is you who has destroyed your holiday."

vjack has a point. How would we feel if people would constantly stick Ramadan or Yom Kippur into our faces? When we surrender the Golden Rule then we reduce our faith to just another form of tribalism.
