    You're the one saying Christians somehow have less than 24 hrs in a day to enjoy their religion.

    to allow others to enjoy the time to celebrate their beliefs.

    Anyone who can live and let live should be able to ignore the actions of others, meaning all of these offended Christians should be !nature enough to not care. Same is true with all factions

    So why is it that you have a problem with Satanists putting up a religious display right next to a Christian one?

    No, I believe he was using the spelling of an accented way of saying the word American to attack the type of ignorant fundamentalist Christians who tend to be rural and live in the south and southwest that have had a reputation for intolerance since the civil war.

    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.
    It's adolescent and ignorant to include any religion except Christianity, got it. Thanks.

    Do you see them trying to put their displays in any area that doesn't have a Christian display?

    As far as what you said about Christians, I'm not Christian.

    You keep trying to draw comparisons involving what people would/wouldn't do to Islam and yet... the reason Islamists hate the West is that the West has secular leisures that Islamists simply can't stand because of their religious belief. Seem kind of odd no? That people wouldn't dare to piss of Islam... and yet... the reason why Islamists hate the West is that we engage in dionysian displays of sexual "deviance", greed and all around partying that events like Ramadan strictly forbid or look down upon.

    Hell, in this year's Ramadan, Americans specifically dedicated a day to eating hotdogs, hamburgers and drinking. That's not even counting the millions of days per year (that's not a mistake) that we dedicate to BBQs, summer sales, making pornography films, staring at women in bikinis, drinking, having unmarried sex, etc. You act as if the very lifestyle that Americans lead is not offensive to the Islamist world every single day of the year. That you think atheists are cowardly - when the reason some Muslim ideologues hate us is because of the secular activities Americans engage in - is pretty funny.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
