We could just ask Muslims and Jews to lift shirt and empty pocket

Mark Kessler, professor of protected little people:
According to an advisory which described tips for an “all-inclusive, multicultural holiday party at the office,” describing Christmas as a “holiday” is not longer multicultural enough because, “Not all faith traditions have holidays in December, and not everyone identifies with a particular faith tradition.”Mark Kessler, professor of multicultural women’s and gender studies, says that in order to avoid “missteps” that might offend Muslims, Jews or atheists, party planners should refrain from using the word “holiday” because it “connotes religious tradition and may not apply to all employees.”The use of “religious symbolism, such as images of Santa Claus, evergreen trees, or red-nosed reindeer” is also discouraged, as is “red and green sugar cookies shaped like Christmas trees.” Halal or kosher food should be offered to meet the “requirements of non-majority groups in your organization.”
I guess the goal here is to not get our ass blown up or shot by some Islamic nut or JDL freak.  Why not take the simple route? Have these classes of people show proof of pacifism, by inspection, upon entering the Santa Claus party.
