People who say "Season's greetings" because supposedly "Merry Christmas" is offensive only to turn around and say "Happy Hanukkah" or "Eid Mubarak" grind my gears.

Same goes for people who snark on Evangelicals but god forbid if you make a comparison between Muslims and said Evangelicals.

How about we stay consistent about how we treat different faiths, huh?

I might be becoming more conservative but it really pisses me off this Christmas time.

I’m Jewish and never presume to know someone else’s faith unless they are wearing religious clothing or jewelry. So for the twenty something years I spent in retail, I responded to people’s Merry Xmas with either “you too,” or “enjoy your holiday.” Never met with a complaint.
