No Religious Christmas . . . or Hanukkah Either.

Christians and Christmas aren't the only ones having problems keeping the religious nature of their holidays.

Jews too

In Israel of all places.

An Israeli community awakened to find its Hanukkah Menorah smashed to pieces and it was done by the leader of the community.

Assaf was quoting(sic) telling town residents he was afraid of an "infiltration" of religious Jews into his community or that local secular Jews would become more observant.

As the article points out, it is Judaism's most secular holiday. Fear of Religion is a serious phobia suffered by many secular thinkers. Religion can be dangerous when it used by evil men, but Christianity and Judaism are inherently good religions of a truly divine origin.

How a Hannukah Menorah, celebrating one of the most secular, and least important festivals in Judaism, would draw in more religious Jews is a mystery. What an odd person that clown must be. But he's indicative of the slide into Secular Humanism everywhere.

All true religions are inherently good and divine in origin. Evil men distort them for thier own purposes.
