Post by: BlindDruid on November 11, 2014, 12:37:52 PM
When I saw this I had to share this.  its from an IT solutions company in the states with a great sense of humour.  They were advertising their upcoming Christmas lunch
Disclaimer: Although this event is promoted as a "Christmas Lunch" BSI welcomes all other holiday greetings, opinions, wishes, and other salutations at our lunch.

As sad as it sounds, this greeting should actually be posted in most workplaces. Too many thin-skinned people out there. And for the record, the thin-skinned people are not usually Muslims (as is often believed), but rather atheists who like to make it clear to anyone who will listen that they don't believe in anything.

Try telling an Atheist that the fact they don't believe in anything is their doctrine, and therefore can be considered religion.  They don't like that.
