    Are we cool? Do we both agree that there are no verses in the Bible about beating your wife?

    Personally I don't know why the cowards don't try to petition the local, state, and federal governments to make a National PIG Month which would coincide with Ramadan. Then you'd be showing me something. As it is, all this is is a disgraceful bid to incite, goad, and ridicule the Christian population. To stoke animosity in the general public and to promote ill will.

    People aren't open minded in supporting this crap, they're pathetic.

    Grow the F up.

    National Pig month would be hilarious.

    Strawman some more. As I've said repeatedly before, I'm not Christian. These Satanists are also not about religion. They're a bunch of athiests who just want to be aholes. I can guarantee you that if an actual religion wanted to put up their displays next to a Christian nativity scene I'd have no problem with it in the slightest. And I wouldn't care if it was Islamic, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhism, or any other ACTUAL religious people. But that is not what these "Satanists" are about. They are about being aholes towards Christians. Nothing more. Nothing less.
    You know the atheists think Christians are the a-holes for pushing their religion on people in public spaces. What are churches and front yards for?

    Kal'Stang obviously had it right.
    No, but those aren't what's being displayed either. What's being displayed is a myth. If you want to put up a wholly secular display of peace on earth, knock yourself out. So long as it continues to be religious myth, they have to open things up to all religions.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    He may have been confusing his Holy Books.

    Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.

    What is the definition of Holy? What is the definition of righteous?

    These are not the same words. If you live in a house with more than one person then it is very likely that your toothbrush is holy.

    How is Christmas a religious myth? It's been going on for generations now and you call it a "myth"? Are you one of those who don't understand that Christmas has become wildly popular among non-Christians as well?

    If the Festivus people have a message to tell why not tell it? But it seems there is no message at all, they are doing it because they can, and are just taking up space. That's something their adherents likely do as well.
