    Do you know of any city, town, county or state in America which is putting Muslim holiday displays on publicly-owned property?

    You are correct, atheists and those of non-Islamic faiths are not allowed the use of public space in many nations that are Muslim majority - so what? Is that what you want in America, only Christian displays on publicly-owned property? There are no laws in this country, or shouldn't be anyway, that prevent religious displays on private property accessible to public view. There is no attempt to stop people from putting up Nativity displays or menorahs or statues of Ba'al or Baphomet or a simple wooden post on private property.














    Curious to see how many know the "simple wooden post" reference

    Yeah, I sometimes wonder if these folks are arguing we should be more like Iran instead of less.

    There are people of all religions and people with no religion, who disapprove of abortion. Do you genuinely understand this fact, or are you going on your feelings?
    Tell me you think this when your kid's school starts having teachers lead the class in Islamic prayers.

    Reallly? There is a rule here which states that leftists must always have verification for every claim they make. In this case you would need my quote.

    I agree, which is what most Christians will be doing while commenting how ignorant these people really are. The Festivists (even their name came from a TV show) are not going to ruin anyone's Christmas by drawing attention to themselves, that's certain, but it is a comment on the dumbing down of American culture.

    Live and let live does not mean that public idiocy should remain comment free.

    Because it detracts from the traditional Christmas spirit that is part of the American tradition and culture, a time of God Bless Us All and a reflection of the goodness in the human spirit.

    I don't know what the satanists are celebrating, or what their long term goals are (if they have any), and I'm not really interested. It seems they're only trying to draw attention to themselves but lack any substance behind their efforts.

    What? How many times must I explain that I believe it to be ignorant before it finally sinks in??? What's happened to the American educational system??
