Can you imagine that there is a group on DA which says that this was a religious symbol and that they don't accept religion related photos? ^^

I can imagine that they wanted to be very "tolerant" or very "political correct", but this behaviour is pretty much the opposite of tolerance...

This shows that people are afraid of the "differences"...and this fear leads to intolerance and often to even worse things...

I have never heard that somebody had a problem with a tree or with a Christmas tree. This is basically a landscape photo!

Btw: If you think that the Christians invented it, then you are wrong because the ritual of taking a plant or a tree to celebrate something has its roots in alot of different cultures from all over the earth.


UPDATE: Wow a DD! Thank you very much, especially Patrick [link] for suggesting it! I never thought that this photo could make a DD...thanks!

It might not be the right time of the year, but this photograph just needs to be seen!

It's more of a cultural symbol nowadays.

I hope it's becoming a symbol of hope...for all cultures and maybe some other's symbols will be part of our culture. =)
