    It's called the law of unintended consequences.
    Yes, i suppose we can never underestimate stupid. There are fewer adults around walking around than there once was, that's certain.

    We all have similar rights, but it seems we don't all have the discretion, or decency, to allow others to enjoy the time to celebrate their beliefs.

    Nobody is stopping you from enjoying the time to celebrate your beliefs. Put the display on the lawn of your church, the parsonage, on a site owned by a parishoner. You can then exclude anyone you want, or invite anyone you want. But your rights don't allow you to prevent others from exercising theirs on public property.

    I'm not trying to prevent others from exercising their rights. Where have I ever claimed that?

    What I am saying is that cluttering up a traditional display, rather than just doing a live and let live thing, is adolescent and ignorant.

    Would these people ever do the same in front of a mosque? Or temple? Of course not!

    They have their freedom to put up their Satanic symbols, with beer cans attached, while others have the right to call them deeply stupid. They will live in an eternal spring break with wisdom, understanding and tolerance never being their ambition, or within their reach.

    Are you suggesting that athiests and Satanists have some sort of time manipulation device that prevents Christians from having 24hrs in a day?

    You better call the Justice League to take on these time-warping menace to society!

    They probably would as long as state supported the public display of religious items.

    The correct answer is that no such displays should be on government property unless its related to a historical preservation effort.

    You are offering responses to your own questions and supplying your own solutions. It's a system that seems to work for you.

    Unlike your good self, not everyone has the correct answer. My own answer is to live and let live while respecting the rights and traditions of other religions and cultures..
