I swear . . .

"How would YOU feel if YOUR neighbors put up a huge brightly lit menorah on their front lawn to celebrate Hanukkah?"

"I wouldn't."

"You wouldn't what?"

"Feel anything.  I can't imagine why I would mind."

"So you don't care if people just flaunt their religion right in your face?"

"Nope.  I'm not a real religious man, but I do pray sometimes and one of the prayers I pray occasionally is that I will always have something better to do than to worry about my neighbor's holiday decorations--real or imagined."

. . .

Some people make a vocation of being mortally offended, which usually, in time, reduces them to silliness because there just isn't that much to be mortally offended about on a daily basis.
