    Government is not theocracy, it cannot allow one but deny others, not while upholding the rights and liberties of others. Religious expression on public land is an all or nothing scenario in a free Republic.

    That's not what I asked. If what you say is true, why haven't we hurtled towards theocracy yet?

    Yes, we know you disagree with a fundamental founding principle of this country. We can't help you with this problem.

    Because enough people still believe in religious freedom, thankfully.

    Thank you for demonstrating that a Christmas display on the little town square is not a "fundamental step toward theocracy".

    It can, it just won't.

    It's not. But if one starts arguing that only one religion is allowed to be displayed and attempt to enforce this through government force, then it could be. Religious display on public land is fine, but in a free republic we have to respect the religious beliefs of all.

    Because of our Constitution. It has taken us a while to fully institute it but better late than never. The majority has been over powering the minorities for too long.

    Fair enough. But I was arguing with a fellow who claimed that Christmas decorations on the little town square were "a fundamental step towards theocracy". He has yet to demonstrate how this is so.
