While I don't condone her actions I certainly do not blame her for those actions. She was provoked imo. I don't care if they put up Islamic symbols or Hindu or whatever, hell, don't even care about Wiccan idoltry being put up. But these "Satanists" are doing what they are just to provoke and they should be shut down.
    So the barrier to allow religious freedom should be whether or not it "creates unrest" in the majority population?

    To you, but not others. Why do your beliefs have to be respected, but not the beliefs of others?

    I'm almost out of time today, but knowing good commies follow the tenets of communism, and want to eliminate Christianity:

    Dennis v. United States, 341 U.S. 494 (1951), was a United States Supreme Court case relating to Eugene Dennis, General Secretary of the Communist Party USA. The Court ruled that Dennis did not have the right under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution to exercise free speech, publication and assembly, if the exercise involved the creation of a plot to overthrow the government. ACLU wrote in favor of the defendants.
    Dennis v. United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    1925 Gitlow v. New York Our first Supreme Court landmark. Though upholding the defendant's conviction for distributing his call to overthrow the government, the Court held, for the first time, that the Fourteenth Amendment "incorporates" the free speech clause of the First Amendment and is, therefore, applicable to the states.

    1927 Whitney v. California Though the Court upheld a conviction for membership in a group that advocated the overthrow of the state, Justice Brandeis explained, in a separate opinion, that under the "clear and present danger test" the strong presumption must be in favor of "more speech, not enforced silence." That view, which ultimately prevailed, laid the groundwork for modern First Amendment law.

    1931 Stromberg v. California The ACLU argued successfully that the conviction of a communist for displaying a red flag should be overturned because it was based on a state law that was overly vague, in violation of the First Amendment

    1937 DeJonge v. Oregon A landmark First Amendment case, in which the Court held that the defendant's conviction under a state criminal syndicalism statute merely for attending a peaceful Communist Party rally violated his free speech rights.

    1957 Watkins v. United States Under the First Amendment, the Court imposed limits on the investigative powers of the House UnAmerican Activities Committee, which had found a labor leader in contempt for refusing to answer questions about his associates' membership in the Communist Party.
    1958 Kent v. Dulles The Court ruled that the State Department had exceeded its authority in denying artist Rockwell Kent a passport because he refused to sign a "noncommunist affidavit." The right to travel, said the Court, is protected by the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment.

    1962 Engel v. Vitale In an 8-1 decision, the Court struck down the New York State Regent's "nondenominational" school prayer, holding that "It is no part of the business of government to compose official prayers."

    1963 Abingdon School District v. Schempp Building on Engel in another 8- 1 decision, the Court struck down Pennsylvania's in-school Bible-reading law as a violation of the First Amendment.

    1965 Lamont v. Postmaster General A unanimous Court found unconstitutional, under the First Amendment, a challenged Cold War law that required the Postermaster General to detain and destroy all unsealed mail from abroad deemed to be "communist political propaganda" -- unless the addressee requested delivery in writing.

    1969 Brandenburg v. Ohio After the ACLU's 50-year struggle against laws punishing political advocacy, the Court now adopted our view of the First Amendment -- that the government could only penalize direct incitement to imminent lawless action -- and invalidated, in one fell swoop, the Smith Act and all state sedition laws restricting radical political groups.

    1983 Bob Jones University v. United States The Court rejected two fundamentalist Christian schools' claim, supported by the Reagan Justice Department, that the First Amendment guarantee of religious liberty forbade the denial of income tax exemptions to educational and religious institutions that practice racial discrimination. Instead, the Court held that the IRS is empowered to set rules enforcing a "settled public policy" against racial discrimination in education

    Satanism is mostly the home of the misled and thankfully harmless. Its a false religion like Wicca but it's the land of fools rather than the dangerous.

    Christmas has nothing to do with constitutions, it has nothing to do with legislature, it has nothing to do with any part of official government business. Get serious.
    It's the old "Why can't Johnny read?" problem. You missed the meaning completely.

    You may have messed the meaning of my comment.

    The American culture has been under attack for a few decades now with America being popularized by Leftists as an evil country. Dividing Americans by color, sex, the nationalization of the family, etc. all comes from the same, or similar, sources. The attacks on Christmas is seasonal but the attack on the Christian religion, in the US and around the world, goes on all year. The "Satanists" would never do this during Ramadan. The latest group under attack is the police.
