    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.
    There is no state religion and have no idea what you mean by 'your religion'.

    In fact many Christmas displays are quite beautiful and I appreciate them. So do many millions of other people.

    Exactly...get all of the religious displays off of the public space.

    Yes, they are beautiful...put them up on your own damned private property. Is that so hard?

    You say you aren't pushing your beliefs on anyone..but you sure as hell feel that the satanists are pushing their beliefs on you.

    Has that sunk in yet?

    You have a church..display it there, and that goes for every religion, real or fake.

    Or, put them all up on public display, and everyone quit whining.

    Why does it bother you to make public space more beautiful? And do you really not understand the spirit of Christmas?
    You say you aren't pushing your beliefs on anyone..but you sure as hell feel that the satanists are pushing their beliefs on you. Has that sunk in yet?
    You've made over 4,000 posts so you should understand that if you are going to make a claim such as this you should use a quote. Just guessing at what I may have said is not adult.
    You have a church..display it there, and that goes for every religion, real or fake.
    In fact I don't have a Church and don't attend one. Many people other than Christians celebrate Christmas and the spirit of Christmas. Hasn't that sunk in yet?

    It seems you're the one whining over 'public land' and the traditional celebrations that have become so much of the culture. What an empty life some people live. There is no joy in their lives.

    I dunno. A "Flying Spaghetti Monstar," display could be rather messy and violate health code.

    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.
    Then you should have a huge problem with what the Christians did to the Pagans, who were the original people to have a seasonal celebration at this time of year.....

    Why should I have a problem with either Christians or pagans?

    It seems Erod made a good point with his comment about 'irrelevance'.
