| It's his house after all, he can celebrate as he wishes. |
Celebrating is one perfectly fine, but this isn't celebrating.
Just like nudity, in your own home that's fine, but I don't care if it is your yard, I don't want to see my neighbors naked ass outside!
I guess my issue is with the statement he's trying to portray. He's upset that Christmas is no longer about peace and good will, so he protests it by putting up a violent display?
Why not put that disgust to some good use? Donate to a charity...set up a display that makes people feel good about themselves! I think his method of protesting negates the very thing he's trying to promote.
| Taste is the enemy of creativity |
LOL - But again, he's not promoting creativity, he's promoting good will. I find it ineffective to promote good will with a display of ill will.
| Its nothing worse than they would have seen 2 months ago at Halloween. |
I was waiting for this comment.
I don't think it's a fair comparison. Just because Halloween is violent, doesn't mean we should bludgeoned Cherished childrens holiday characters.
Is it ok to show the Easter Bunny being boiled in chocolate?
| And I agree that the commercialization of Christmas needs far more protest than it gets |
I agree that the commercialisation is insane, but it's not my place (nor anyone elses) to make a "holier than thou" protest for all to see. Again, if you're against the commercialisation, please promote good will. Don't promote it by spewing disgust. Spewing disgust isn't good will and the guy (from the article) is not a purveyor of good will.
p.s. If you can't tell, I have a thing about protesting
