Donohue: “We don’t want to have the Klan out there on Martin Luther King Day with their monuments right next to a bust of Martin Luther King. We don’t want to have neo-Nazis out there to stick it to Jews on Yom Kippur. And we shouldn’t have people out there ready to trash Christianity, given that proximity.”

A merry season to you too, Bill.
