Why I Don't Get Pizza From Dominos

Well, not really. I don't get Dominos because its crappy. However, Bill Donohue really needs to get a grip. He now has his panties in a bunch because a single YMCA in New York decided to replace one fictional character (Santa Claus) with another (Frosty the Snowman).

"Christmas is not about Jack Frost; it's not about snowmen," fumed Bill Donohue of the Catholic League. "We're not talking about some secular organization that has no religious roots. If they can't celebrate Christmas, then they should check out. What a bunch of cowards."

What does the modern image of Santa Claus, an image from Coca-Cola ads, have to do with religion? Sure, St. Nicholas was a Catholic saint, but the North Pole dwelling, toy making elf of children's stories? Sheesh Bill, get a freaking grip. This isn't an assault on your religion.

The New York Post's framing of the story doesn't help either. The comments section there is a wonderful primer on bigotry though.
