Seems to me, that YOU are denying MY rights to observe my religion too. That’s right, but it’s not so much your attack on Christianity, but GOD. Therefore, I demand equal rights. Let’s see, I find your NAME offensive, it implies your religion! I don’t want to see menorahs or hear that song about all the jewish people there are. I don’t want to hear about hanukkah or see those little beanies they wear, funny dressed guys which implies THEIR religion. Merry Christmas and God Bless America !

Your absurd & asinine Anti-Semitic attack on a fellow American you do not even know because he was born of a Jewish mother (like Jesus) reflects only on yourself & reveals a repugnant religious racist incapable of civil communication.
Moreover, your malevolent message is morally misdirected. It is more rationally redirected at those who disrespect & disregard our laws rather than at those of us who respect & request compliance with them.

your response is exactly what I am talking about… it’s OK for you to refer to me as anti-semetric, but for OK you to be anti-gentile???

“little sport”? Just a little condescending aren’t YOU? Also a little hypocritical too! Generals do not impress me. Nor does vietnam era. Nor does your little foundation.

It’s hard to respond politely to messages like this. Your bigotry bespeaks a closed mind and a limited capacity for rational discourse, so the angry part of me tells me not to bother. It wants me instead to tell you what I think of you, express the pity I feel when confronted with the tragic fact that some who think of themselves as Christians are capable of such hideous expressions of hatred, and generally stoop to your level and respond in kind.
So it’s hard to just treat you like a grownup and explain that we’re not attacking Christianity and we’re not attacking God. We have no problem with either. What we oppose is the government sponsorship of religious  expression. That’s because in this country we love, both the law and military regulations prohibit government promotion of any support for, proselytizing of, or promotion of one belief system over others. You see, that’s the way we protect the freedom of religious or non-religious choice.
In America, people can believe as they choose, whatever they choose, because that’s the way the Founders designed it. I’m sorry you don’t seem to understand that.
