Separation of Church & Society™: Chase Bank Removes Christmas Trees

About that tree, thanks but no thanks.

War on Christmas?  What war on Christmas!

Chase Bank told a Texas businessman to remove the Christmas tree he donated to a local branch because it could offend people.  Antonio Morales, owner of Bellagio Day Spa in Southlake northeast of Fort Worth had assembled and decorated a 9-foot-tall tree in the lobby of the Chase Bank branch at 1700 E. Southlake Boulevard as a favor to the branch manager, who is one of his clients.

The tree remained in the lobby from the Monday before Thanksgiving until Tuesday. Morales said his friend called him Wednesday to tell him the tree had to go. She later showed him an e-mail from JPMorgan Chase saying that the tree had to be removed because some people were offended by it.


Do you have an account with Chase?  Are YOU offended by Chase’s decision?  Then you know what to do.

  1. I am a Chase card holder. Separation of Church and Society??? Hey Chase, I will agree from now on to a separation of My Money from Chase!!!
    If enough Christians get “OFFENDED” and cancel their cards, maybe Chase will have to live in the Spirit of CHRISTMAS PAST”!!!!!!!!
