    You don't have to be Gay to defend Gay rights, or Black to defend equal rights, and you don't have to be a Christian to speak up for Christmas. Do leftists seriously not get this?
    Cephus isn't a leftist. I realize that it's hard for you to understand that. See, he's a conservative atheist. I'm a liberal Christian. Real people aren't your strawmen.

    I go by their words, not what they call themselves.

    I agree that these people are harmless enough, though not very bright, and they target areas where they know they'll be safe. Attacking Christians and Christian symbols is easy for them, though they would never dare do the same to Muslims, or even Hindus.

    That display wasn't done by real Satanists anyway--they're just a bunch of devil-worshipping freakazoids who want attention.

    True Satanists are Laveyan Satanists and we don't need displays.

    You realize that getting rid of the religious displays would mean no Satanic display. As it is now, with the door open to Christians they have to open it to other religions. The government can't pick a religion as "correct."
    And to allow Christmas displays during Christmas, Christian or otherwise, is called "Tolerance". Christmas is a part of western culture and has been celebrated annually for hundreds of years. Satanism, while not unknown, has never really caught on with the public, though it is growing in deed, if not by philosophy.

    We can ban Christmas altogether from the public square and replace it with nothing. Just leave it the same all year 'round. That should bring joy to the hearts of Satanists and atheists everywhere.

    I don't know, go ask a leftist.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Still can't make your case? Pretty telling.

    So do I. Considering Cephus' words on many other issues that aren't religion, he's no leftist.
