This is getting absurd. This picture is an advertisement that has apparently offended a woman who happened to read it. As opposed to averting her gaze, she was forced to read the phrase “Jesus is the reason for the season.” How could Mc Donald’s have the nerve to state something like this; especially nearing the birth date of Christ?
"It offends me because it specifically talks about Jesus, Merry Christmas. It doesn't give credit to anyone else," Alpert said.
I took that quote from WRAL.com who covered this atrocity and I needed to repeat the quote.
"It doesn't give credit to anyone else..."
Kermit the frog really wants some f$ing recognition! I’d like to ask Alpert who else actually deserves credit. Is she really serious? Amanda Alpert, a Jew, expresses how much it hurts to read a sign like this.
"I care because I'm Jewish, and the reason for the season is upsetting to me," Alpert said.
Ummm. Again Ms. Alpert bears repeating.
"the reason for the season is upsetting to me."
I don't like to see people upset, do you? Maybe we should stop expressing our faith. Maybe we should eliminate the 1st amendment for the sake of not upsetting anyone.
Alpert then called Mc Donald’s corporate headquarters only to be more upset. Mc Donald’s explained to her that because the owner owned that sign, that the owner has the right to display what they choose. Appalling!!!
