The season of inclusion

If we can manage to spare everyone's feelings enough, we can all just be quivering masses of feeling and not have to use our heads — the distribution of intellectual capacity being so, you know, unequal and everything. Like John Ralston Saul says, Lord knows that "reason" has already had its turn. From Raleigh, NC:

The sign at McDonald's on the corner of Falls of Neuse and Spring Forest Road reads: "Merry Christmas, Jesus is the Reason for the Season." It is a holiday message that Amanda Alpert thinks comes on a little too strongly.

"It offends me because it specifically talks about Jesus, Merry Christmas. It doesn't give credit to anyone else," Alpert said.
You mean, like Bob Geldof?

HT: John the Mad. The good news: McDonald's didn't bite on her complaint.
