    Satanist trolling for relevance is kind of funny actually.

    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?
    Does freedom go too far?

    I'd prefer to keep all religious idolatry from our government, but if you're going to open it up then it's opened up.

    Hey, they have the same right to put their phony god up as the christians do, or the muslims, or the mormons or the jainists, or whoever.

    How about......we take all of them down, and start celebrating reason and logic?

    There are millions upon millions of Christians in Florida and, what, a couple dozen satanists? Why shouldn't they get equal representation?<face palm>

    I don't seem to recall the codicil in the First Amendment that allows for religious freedom, as long as your religion has enough members.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    There are also millions who don't believe in God or religious symbols of any kind on State property. That is what these "Satanists" are really saying. Hint: This is about the Nativity not "Satanism" which is a made-up "religion" chosen to offend Christians as much as possible.

    I don't either but let's be real. This has nothing to do with religious freedom. It's about common decency which I seriously doubt you would find in a satanic cult.

    Let them have their display but let me exercise my right to call bull**** on the notion that it's purpose is anything other than to poke a stick in the eye of Christianity.

    Religious freedom.... LMAO.

    Correct, and in an oh-so tasteless way.

    I find a Nativity on State property to be just as tasteless and offensive. It belongs on private or church property. I can't believe they are leaving the Nativity up next to a "Satanist" display. It makes a mockery of the whole thing. but it seems Christians are a pretty thick-headed bunch.
