Christmas Trees would pollute U.N. Conference‏

We read:
"Participants at Copenhagen's global climate summit will be meeting during the holiday season, but they will not be surrounded by festive Christmas decor, according to Denmark's Foreign Ministry. Since Christmas is a religious holiday, it has no place at a United Nations event, said officials planning the event.

A sponsor providing fir trees for the conference's Christmas trees learned this the hard way when it was turned away by planners of the international event, the Copenhagen Post reported. The trees, commonly used as Christmas trees in Denmark, were originally to be placed outside the Bella Center, where the 11-day conference will be held from Dec. 7 — Dec. 18.

"We have to remember that this is a U.N. conference and, as the center then becomes U.N. territory, there can be no Christmas trees in the decor, because the U.N. wishes to maintain neutrality," said Denmark Foreign Ministry official Svend Olling.

Fir trees otherwise reach the climate-friendly standards of the conference planners. Firs bind carbon dioxide and prevent its release into the atmosphere.

When in Denmark, do as the Danes do? Apparently not.

Still more discrimination against Christians. I'll bet if there was a Muslim holiday taking place during that time, that they would gladly put out symbols of Islam like suicide bomber jackets, beheading knives, or whatever Muslims use to celebrate.

I don't see this as a problem, the people attending this conference don't deserve a festive atmosphere anyway.

The only religion allowed at the conference will be the officially sanctioned global warming religion. Anything distracting worshipers from the dogma will not be tolerated.

A more festive atmosphere would be to have piles of burning leftist bodies. It would add such a warm glow to this fake and totally irrelevant meeting that has nothing to do with the environment, and everything to do with control!.

So the delegates must be protected from seeing how the Danes celebrate Christmas lest they be traumatized or corrupted.
