    We have free speech allowing us to use racial slurs, for example, against others, but to do so would be ignorant. Even the Left gets that. There are many things we are legally entitled to do but we don't do them out of respect for our fellow citizens who may have beliefs different from our own.

    This won't bother Christians (and I'm not one myself) but it does allow the "Satanists" to feel they are important, just as window smashers feel they are also making a statement, a statement they cannot otherwise articulate because of the limitations of their own intelligence..
    I agree completely. It's childish, petty and rude for people to insist on putting up a satanist display right next to a nativity scene. It's about the same as the KKK suing to erect a burning cross next to the statue of Martin Luther King Jr. on some municipal property to celebrate MLK day. It might be free speech but it's rude, obnoxious and damned petty.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Pathetic, useless losers are funny as they grapple with their pointless irrelevance.

    As the 'Festivus' group readily understands, they can attack Christians because Christians won't come down hard on them.

    It is childish and rude to insist on putting up any religious display on public land....including your religion.

    You have your own private properties to put up whatever the hell you want. Stop trying to force yours, or any religion upon the public.

    Nobody is forcing their religion on the public. Do you feel under threat of converting to Christianity?

    Public land. No state religion.

    Awfully smug in the thought that your religion is the right one.

    Put your display up in your church, temple, mosque, etc.

    You don't need to litter up public space with your non-exclusive beliefs.
