Since when is Valentine's Day religious?  
I just read an article that said DePere, Wisconsins school district voted to change Valentine's Day to Friendship Celebration Day! Apparently, this is because it is St. Valentine's Day and therefore religious. Now I ask you, since when is Valentine's Day religious?

The sheer stupidity of people. They talk of tolarance and yet if anything has a hint of Christianity to it they want it banned! It's just ludicrious. Just because you hear about something religious doesn't mean you'll struck "dumb" with religion, not that I think believing in God is stupid or dumb. It's just I know there are those who don't believe but I really think they haven't seen Valentine's Day as religious either.

The article also suggested (mockingly) some other name changes:
1. Saint Patrick's Day
2. Angel food cake
3. San Jose
4. Santa Claus
5. Santa Ana
6. Saint Bernard
7. Amaheim Angels

I mean you can't have things named for Saints and Angels... can you? Oh that does mean Sara Evan's song Saint & Angels is out too. Damn, next thing you'll know they'll be telling us wood was religious at one point so you can't have it... plastic houses it is!

Lol I agree, that is dumb! I have never thought of Valentines day in a religious way.

Me neither! I mean since when have Catholics gone to mass or Christians said.... well Jesus and Mary celebrated it.... I mean come on!

Anyways... I was thinking and San Francisco needs to be changed too because that is named after a Saint *rolling eyes*
