    They don't give a damn about the mythical birth of a mythical Christ, they are protesting religious expression on public property.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Right. Another member put it quite accurately by characterizing them as the trolls of the religious sphere.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Only if, by troll, you mean "people raining on your parade".

    No, it is very appropriate when, by troll, I mean petty instigators with nothing better to do than bait people and try to get reactions out of them. They're attention whores, as all trolls typically are. It's not my parade. My wife and I are agnostics. I do get a bit of a kick out of seeing people acting so butt-hurt as the "satanists" are doing over someone else's religion that they go out of their way to be as mischievous as possible. It's kind of like watching a little spoiled brat throwing a temper tantrum right in the main aisle of the grocery store.

    Some people don't think it should happen -- Satanists Win the Right to Place ‘Grossly Offensive’ Holiday Display Next to the Nativity Inside Florida’s Capitol

    Anybody want to bet that some "real Amurrican" will deface or damage the display?
    I know what i think . . . .

    I think

    dont care, all people that apply for a display should be granted (barring space and local lude/nudity laws etc) . . . . . if thats not the case then nobody gets a display

    Really?
    I thought it was those Westboro Baptist Church guys.
    So many religions, so many trolls.

    LOL There is no such thing as "Satanists". You do understand this is a stunt to emphasize the incorrectness of religious symbols on State or Federal property. Lose the Nativity and the "Satanism" goes away too. It is just like this children's school book....
