    "The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority told representatives of the diocese the ads were too religious in nature, but would likely be accepted if they were changed to promote sales."

    You can't promote Jehovah, but you can promote Mammon...

    "Too religious"? It's a CHURCH ad!

    What should they have? Balloons?

    WMATA is overly sensitive to islamic and jewish concerns who do not want to see anything connecting holidays to christian religious themes.

    But you have to dress them in red elf suits; and instead of camels you have to use reindeer.

    I think it's atheists. Atheists have brought the legal suits, not Jews and Muslims. (I think they are the kind of atheists who say "God does not exist and I hate him very much!"

    I am sure they are in the mix as well, but the Islamists have been very vocal here in the DC area.
