    How? How exactly do you progress from Christmas decoration to theocracy? If you don't really know, just say so.

    If Christmas decorations on the little town square were a "fundamental first step", then why haven't we progressed towards a theocracy yet? How long does this progression take? 100 years? 200? 1000?

    So you would be against vandalizing any religious display, right?

    Of course, vandalism is vandalism. It's silly to insinuate that there would be a difference based on religious belief.

    Calm down, it was just a question. If it's true, where are his posts concerning the vandalizing of Christmas displays?

    Does not follow. They could very well deny one but not the other.

    We live in a system of legal precedence. Establishing religion, even if just for a small town, potentially rewrites a significant aspect of the first amendment and changes the role of government.
