  Christmas lights renamed in England
A a grand show of European idioacy, Christmas tree lights have been renamed, apparently for fear of offending other faiths. Tory councillor Bernard Gentry told the BBC: "Christmas appears to have been cancelled in our borough".

In three of South Londons Lambeth's main town centres, the lights are referred to as "Winter Lights", while in the fourth they are called "Celebrity Lights". The council spokeswoman said an official was concerned about people from other religions. It has led to headlines such as "Christmas is banned" and "The PC [politically correct] lights show" and led some members of other faiths to call it "ridiculous".

The idea that the religious festival of Christmas is offensive to others is as bad as I've seen European PC get. I now suppose anything can be offensive in the EU. I can only assume they'll loose the capacity for speech in a few short years as any speech can be offensive. Mandatory removal of the Broca's area should do nicely.

Never have I been so glad to live in America where we can a call what we invented whatever we want, where some people can choose to use the word "nigger" is they want. Where offense is no excuse for violence. Where we are free to offend is we soo choose. Choice.hmm..
