    While I agree with you, that's not a good example because Hitler was a Christian and believed that God told him to exterminate the Jews. He was very much talking about Christianity when he made that statement.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Because it's not an active religion. Once Christianity goes away into the dustbin of history, nobody will care about that either.

    Then you would be fine with your local courthouse displaying a six foot tall crescent and star, the symbol of Islam, on the courthouse lawn?



    The display of a religious symbol in government-owned spaces does (in many but not all) situations indicate an endorsement of religion by the state. Hence the problem.

    I'd be OK with it as long is it included the rest:

Their presence doesn't brake the wall of separation and their absence doesn't harm Christians. Both sides are working together to waist everyone's time & money.

    Nope. The first comandment is not the origin or beginning of any religion.
