What do you think of when you think of someone from an organization called the Equality and Human Rights Commission? I have to admit my first thought is of someone who is all about "political correctness" which makes my skin crawl.
That's why I was pleasantly surprised to read this in a recent Reuters article in London:
It's time to stop being daft about Christmas. It's fine to celebrate and it's fine for Christ to be star of the show," said Trevor Phillips, chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
"Let's stop being silly about a Christian Christmas," he said, referring to a tendency to play down the traditional celebrations of the birth of Christ for fear of offending minorities in multicultural Britain.
Way to go Trevor! I could not agree more!
