    I think that Christianity in America (and whatever prevalent religion in any other country) has a history of being extremely overly authoritarian... so I'd agree that it probably has a lot to do with being born out of authority issues. I think satanism pretty much is a reactionary bullcrap notion born out of childish rebellion.

    On my honeymoon we went to Southern Mexico and took a 10 day tour across the Yucatan hitting all sorts of Mayan ruins. When we got to Uxmal ruins they had a stone phallus garden. That would be a nice holiday touch. lol

    Found a pic online... here it is:

    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. 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.
    It is not about beauty, it is about you imposing your particular religion on a public space. Why doesn't it bother you not to put decorations on your own private property.

    Spirit of Christmas is a term that is unique to christianity...why don't you understand the spirit of diwalli? Why don't you understand the spirit of ramadan?

    Public land is public...not whining. Religion has no place on government property...any religion. Again, the churches have their own property. Lots of culture out there that is not religious. Lots of joy there.

    Either allow all of it or none of it, but you can't give preferential treatment to any one religion.

    It doesn\t bother me that Christmas decorations are on private or public property. It is a public celebration which occurs just once a year and does harm to no one.
    Spirit of Christmas is a term that is unique to christianity...why don't you understand the spirit of diwalli? Why don't you understand the spirit of ramadan?
    The spirit of diwalli is not part of the annual celebration, and the word "Christianity" is not exclusive to Christians any more than the term "Hindu" is exclusive to Hindus.
    Public land is public...not whining. Religion has no place on government property...any religion. Again, the churches have their own property. Lots of culture out there that is not religious. Lots of joy there.
    You are whining which, ironically, is what you accused me of doing. Why is it such a big deal to you if people put up Christmas decorations? Try to lighten up a little!

    It has been explained many times that Christmas is celebrated by millions who are not Christians. It is, in fact, a public holiday. Why be such a Scrooge?

    This Satanic display is now also a public celebration. The article states that they also posted that they used bible verses, so shouldn't you be happy?

    It's really simple. We live in what should be an egalitarian society in the eyes of the law. Christians want special privileges from the government and tax payer funded displays. Now that the law is catching up with the crazy, we now have to let everyone clutter our government buildings with varying religious material.

    From now on equality is pretty much a must, so we can choose to continue the madness or we can choose to recognize that faith is a private matter and has no place in the government.

    Actually I see clutter all over America this very week, with people parading through the streets, looting, harassing innocent people, and so on. And people are getting excited about Christmas decorations? LOL!!

    Equality? Since when is this about equality? And there are people who still have faith in government, which is why they want more of it. Didn't the current President say something about healing the oceans? That's faith, brother!

    Government workers who have faith have absolutely zero right to hijack their public office in order to push their religion. If you can find where they do have that right let me know.

    This actually is about equality. The satanists wanted the same treatment christians get and that makes you guys butthurt.

    And really? You're bringing Ferguson into this? Lazy.
