I know I posted about this last year, but apparently christmas is once again in threat. Yes, some people in some places have chosen to call this holiday the winter holiday rather than the christmas holiday. And... um..... also.... CHRISTMAS IS UNDER THREAT! WITHIN THREE YEARS CHRISTMAS WILL BE BANNED! ARRRRRRGGGGGH!

I mean... come on! It's quite bizzare, the persecution complex some people can develop. Yes, political correctness can often be silly and be taken too far, but surely that is not the big battle to be won? Whether you can call a whiteboard a whiteboard might well be a vague issue, but surely the one that there is genuine discrimination still occuring in this nation is somewhat more important?

There has also been mention in the news that the christian union has been banned at several universities. Well, as I understand it, and to put it more accurately, it's ceased being officially affiliated with the SU. Which is fair enough, because the reason for this is very simple- they discriminate against homosexuals. Sorry, but you shouldn't be allowed public money to discrimate against people. I don't see how saying it's a religious matter makes discrimination ok.

Is Christmas under threat in the UK? That's interesting, because here, everyone pretends its the Victorian era and tries to create a very English style decorating scheme for Christmas. Of course, this is often based on a rather tenuous grasp of what English actually means, and generally I get embarrassed for them.
