I want my tree back!

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

In his latest column from The Humanist, Rob Boston reminds us of the Biblical injunction against "Christmas" trees:

Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

(Jeremiah 10:2-4)

Sing along with me: "Oh heathen tree, oh heathen tree.."
