    Fully institute what? Have Christmas decorations on public property been banned by the SCOTUS?

    Because as evidenced in the OP the courts have supported the separation of church and state in these matters. That's why Satanists are permitted displays alongside the Christian ones.

    And judging by the number of children being being abused and murdered throughout the world it seems the Satanists are winning.

    Hey, if you don't want to answer the question, just say so.

    Satan is the representative of evil, otherwise the display would not have been there and gained so much attention. The difference between good and bad behavior gets ever more murky.

    It mentions nothing of this in the Constitution.

    Our nation's prisons are predominantly filled with Christians. Satanists aren't the ones committing crimes on any meaningful level.

    I've answered it for you several times. I don't know how to make it clearer for you:

    Legal precedence of establishment and endorsement of religion by government is an essential first step to a theocracy (a reversal of our current one which provides for religious freedom). Religious displays on public property limited to a specific belief system is an example of the government establishing and endorsing religion.

    Sure, you can say you've answered it, but you have not.

    Exactly. Yes, allowing Christian displays but not displays of other religions on public property IS a first step to a theocracy. As others have said, the reason it hasn't pushed us further given our past history is due to people fighting for our constitution and freedom of religion.

    But CB refuses to see that a first step to a theocracy doesn't mean we're necessarily going to go all the way there, as long as we have people and a court system that stop those kinds of endorsements. Just because we haven't become a theocracy yet doesn't mean we haven't taken this step in the past.
