Yes, sorry, there wasn't a reply when I deleted it. I should have left a comment that it was edited. This was the deleted comment
I feel like I am harping on about this point but finding religion largely redundant is not the same as finding obsolete.
I wonder if that means there will be no Christmas Tree in the Cedar household? Yes...I know....even a Xmas Tree doesn't have a religious meaning in some homes these days.
Obsolete - from the dictionary - no longer produced or used; out of date.
Redundant - not or no longer needed or useful; superfluous.
In my own terms, obsolete - gone and redundant - no longer needed.
Even if you were to take the words to mean the same (and they likely do), you qualified your thoughts with 'largely' whereas Cedars did not.
You are right about Xmas, however I don't think there are many people that continue to celebrate it because it has pagan roots. But point taken in that it possibly isn't Christian either. I guess it comes down to how people personally view it and what it means to them and their families.
