By itself, a Christmas display is not a step toward theocracy. Stores who support equal rights for gays have Christmas displays. However, when the government supports setting up a Christmas display, a nativity scene etc, it does not exist within a vacuum of actions. It exists within the context of a country where state legislatures fight tooth and nail to put the 10 commandments on government property (Florida). It exist within a context where there are trigger laws just waiting for the day Roe v. Wade gets overturned (Florida again). It also exists within the context of a country where homosexuality is attacked by government officials based on religious grounds (Florida again). Within this context of actions, a Christmas display certainly does count as one more step that state legislatures and governments towards a theocracy. If not a step, it is at least a sign that they are.
