European scientists and U.N. bureaucrats are now, in another slap at Christianity and Christmas, banning Christmas trees from the Copenhagen Global Climate Summit. The summit, being attended by Obama and other dignitaries, has shunned the traditional look of Christmas trees because as Denmark Foreign Ministry official Svend Olling said: “”We have to remember that this is a U.N. conference and, as the center then becomes U.N. territory, there can be no Christmas trees in the decor, because the U.N. wishes to maintain neutrality…”
Ironically, the fir trees that were originally planned to be at the summit trap and bind CO2 to prevent ‘global warming’. This shows the level that Europe and our leaders have stooped to. They go to a ‘climate change’ summit over the objections of critics of warming, yet indulging the morons that think we should avoid Christmas trees to ‘remain neutral.’
Yet another example of political correctness run amok. Europe has long been PC capital of the world with Christians being silenced whereas Muslim minorities are protected. This is another thumb in the eye of traditionalists that don’t mind the Christmas tree being displayed. While I don’t think it is malicious or necessarily intolerant, it is definitely overkill when it comes to inclusiveness. The U.N. should come up with better ways to waste American funds than banning Christmas trees and spending billions and trillions in researching and combating a fictional problem.
