the problem with "leaving it alone" is at some point it will become a problem for a person trying to be straight with theirself. it is a civil rights issue and on that point alone it has to be addressed. oppression and the hand of religion is still oppression. i like to take the sting out of the situation with comedy if possibile,kinda like the santa thing at the manger, and yea they should of used the easter bunny as well, as SR pointed out below..
