RELIGION: Is bias against Christians OK?

No public school official would even consider putting the words “Christmas” or “Easter”on a school readerboard nowadays. Christ’s birth has been relegated to “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holidays.”

Yet they had no problem at the Tacoma Public School Professional Development Center on North 23rd (formerly Truman Middle School) putting a Yom Kippur message on the readerboard recently.

I can already hear the justifications. Don’t bother. The message was loud and clear: Anti-Christian bias is the now the only acceptable bias.
