US Jews Feel Threatened by Religious Right

Print Story: US Jews feel threatened by religious right on Yahoo! News

I post this story for two reasons. First, I believe it provides one of many important responses to the "But Christianity doesn't harm anyone" claim. Persons of other religious faiths and those of us who reject faith as self-delusion are worried about what we see coming from the Christian extremist movement. Second, I hope this story might encourage some people to think twice before spewing their "Merry Christmas" nonsense to strangers. By all means, celebrate this and all other holidays you wish to honor. All I ask is that you give at least some thought to how your public behavior impacts others.
