    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.
    Hey, I'm not 'butt hurt" about anything the satanists do. I think they're a bunch of adolesent fools but so are millions of other Americans claiming to be adults.

    Now the US is the second largest economy in the world, the people are rioting in the streets, the national debt is no longer payable and they're worried about Christmas decorations!! Can it get more stupid?

    Well, yes, in fact it can!! Still Number One in Entourages! :: SteynOnline

    Hey, no problem! It will immediately be accepted by those Scrooges and Grinches who live their joyless lives decrying any sort of activity that promotes Peace and Good Will toward their fellow man!

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?
    You don't get it. You have no problem because it is the religion YOU agree with.

    Actually, the annual celebration is Saturnalia, a pagan celebration. Again....put up all the christmas decorations you want....on private property.

    Public space is for the public, not for a religion to peddle their wares.

    Christianity is exclusive to Christians, if you don't think so, go hit up the other religions of the world and ask them.

    You are being obtuse.

    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.
    We'll have to disagree about how rude it is to put up a nativity scene for Christmas in any place. It's quite appropriate, actually. Maybe you should try to get Christmas removed from the list of national holidays and then you might have something legitimate to bitch about with regard to nativity scenes.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Look up "parable" and consider the educational level of the earth's inhabitants at the time. Perhaps God reveals to us the mysteries of the universe at a pace we can handle?

    It is only appropriate to you, because you believe in christianity, and want it endorsed in a public place.

    It is appropriate, on private property...and the christians have plenty of that.

    Actually, both my wife and I are agnostic and hold little love for organized religion. Christmas is a national holiday and whether you believe the nativity scene represents a fable, folklore, myth, or the birth of your personal savior, the nativity scene is just part of Christmas. If you really hate Christianity to the point where you can't stand seeing a nativity scene in town square, you need to get a grip on yourself because it's just not a big deal. So what is it that you hate so much about organized religion? I have no use for it, but it sure doesn't bother me like it bothers you.
