    If you don't think your religion is strong enough to whether the presence of other religions then you are in the wrong religion.

    I don't think Satanists, as in the actual members of the Church of Satan, are religious trolls. Members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster certainly are. Satanists certainly don't believe Satan is an actual existing entity, but they honor what he symbolically represents. I think it is more of a philosophy for them. I am certainly not a Satanist but having read the Bible, IMO, Satan certainly comes off as a more admirable figure than the God of Abraham.

    The real BS here is that I would bet $1000 those Satanists aren't even real Satanists. They're athiests doing all that they can to stick it to religion. From their M.O. they seem to target Christians more than any other though.

    What is a "real Satanist"? It isn't someone who believes in a real Satan. According to the Church of Satan:

    To us, Satan is the symbol that best suits the nature of we who are carnal by birth—people who feel no battles raging between our thoughts and feelings, we who do not embrace the concept of a soul imprisoned in a body.

    I guess only the beliefs you personally deem "correct" count.

    I said I find all religious displays to be offensive in a State setting. They have no place on Govt. property. Put them in your yards or churches. Isn't that enough places?

    That was by design unlike those that built the Nativity who never worried if it offended anyone. It does. We have no State religion in Florida or anywhere else in the USA.

    I have no problem with peoples beliefs. I do have a problem with people going out of their way to be offensive. One of the reasons that I am against organized religion. So yeah...your little barb there? Fell far short of its target. If you want it back feel free to bend down next to your feet and pick it back up. Might be useful against someone else.

    Is it that simple? All a person has got to say is, "It's against my religion, my religion of __________!" If it has to be a recognized religion, who recognized Satanism as a religion?
