    Sounds similar to "Do unto others..." - uh oh! There, I did it again!

    Says you. A Christmas party is for those who celebrate Christmas. If your club is a Christian based ham radio club, then it's completely appropriate! If you have people of different faiths, then what are you saying? If you're so open and inclusive, why not call it a Hanukkah Party?

    I am not entering a religious argument, it's pointless, and I have zero invested in how you want to host a ham radio party.

    Good luck, and enjoy the holidays in whatever fashion you choose!

    If a man can't think for himself, he is but a sheep.

    That reminds me of an incredibly funny joke which is completely inappropriate to share on the QRZ.COM forums - let alone Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, or Holiday parties.

    Thanks for the unintentional memory nudge!

    If you called it a Hanukkah party, it should be perceive as just as religiously exclusive as a Christmas, Muslim, Buddhist, Shintoist, or even an Atheist party. Anyone that would say otherwise is just proving that their complaint really isn't about exclusion, its about their hatred of Christians.

    I've attended A LOT of Christmas parties in my nearly 60 years, I have never, ever, even ONCE been asked to affirm any faith in the lord Jesus Christ as a condition of attending, nor have I ever seen a single person that was atheist, agnostic, jewish or any other 'ish be asked to leave. This superstitions NONSENSE that a "Christmas" party excludes ANYONE is not only wrong, it is proof of the intolerance of those that complain about it.

    Check "Pearls Before Swine" for the last couple of days in the comics page or on the web...
