A reminder: "A veritable grab bag where anything NAUTICAL goes!"
I don''t know anyone who thinks that "separation of church and state" is in the 1st Amendment. It doesn''t mean it isn''t a guiding principle, and a very smart one at that!
If the original post had been a secular Merry Christmas, no one would have complained, but talk about Jesus really doesn''t belong here. There should be a place to get away from all that!
