This is nice, but...

This is nice, but...

Do we really need or want our highest government official, the President, to feel obligated to make "polite public statements" acknowledging every variety of religious celebration occurring throughout the year - no matter how important the celebration may be to those celebrating it? This question is one which begs thought.

There are a growing number of influential religions in the US and each has its own list of "important" holidays. I ask, really... reasonably... must our country yield to recognizing the nonsense of religiosity at every turn? Does doing so stand to harm us in the long run more so than it could ever be expected to help?
