    Which other religions insist on putting their displays on public property?

    They are trolls and its a good thing

    Every court decision they win helps reinforce that the government can't discriminate and favor specific religions due to that dang constitution

    You don't need satanists to win for the constitution to provide that protection and having Jewish or Christian icons of the holiday on display during the holiday season aren't proof the government is sponsoring religion. It's just proof that people like you get your panties in a bunch because other people believe in something you don't and because you're such a control freak, you want to try to stop them.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    You have too many wackos in places of authority who think this is a "Christian nation" that need to be knocked down a peg on frequent occasions, lest they get a real opportunity to ruin this country

    These guys are providing a valuable service and help maintain religious freedom, with the added benefit of being funny

    People like me? Please lay out your assumptions and reasoning behind that comment so I can find your error

    I think it's a knee-jerk reaction by militant atheists that doesn't actually accomplish anything of real value, including "protecting our religious freedom", which isn't in jeopardy, anyway. They're doing it just to piss off Christians and, I suppose, that's their prerogative, but it's silly to characterize it as anything but childish and petty.

    No, they're drawing attention to exactly the sort of thinking we see in this thread:

    There are Christians who really think the first amendment only applies to their religion. For further evidence, hop over to the thread about the rejected mosque.

    OK here is a list of your errors that lead to your accusation.


    1. I am not an athiest
    2. I have no desire to piss off Christians, except the ones that seek to impose their morality on others, even them I don't want to piss them off, but want to hopefully impart some wisdom that they lack, which is that this is a free country. (Digsbe is a good example of the wisdom they need, he stays reasonable yet nobody is going to doubt his faith)
    3. Religious freedom will always need to be protected so long as people like WCH or paleocon seek to impose their agenda)

    OK now that you have been corrected, please try again

    And that is what they would say about that Nativity. There are plenty of places to express your religion without using public lands.
