    In fact my 4 year old granddaughter is the only white child in her pre-school class and yet a dark skinned Santa Claus still visited, with no complaints raised by anyone. These people understand the cultural importance of Christmas, while many others apparently do not. This does not deflect from the importance they hold for their own religion.
    So Hindus and Muslims put displays up on public property? do they destroy other displays that might be up at the same time? or do only christians do that?

    Perhaps they didn't complain about santa claus because they saw no religious implication behind him?

    Your definition of "communism" is lacking.
    If you defend the actions of the ACLU, then you already know what communism is all about. But here's a refresher:

    1. Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose.

    The courts have interpreted the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868) to give the government far more "eminent domain" power than was originally intended, Under the rubric of "eminent domain" and various zoning regulations, land use regulations by the Bureau of Land

    2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

    The 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913 (which some scholars maintain was never properly ratified), and various State income taxes, established this major Marxist coup in the United States many decades ago. These taxes continue to drain the lifeblood out of the American economy and greatly reduce the accumulation of desperately needed capital for future growth, business starts, job creation, and salary increases.

    3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

    Another Marxian attack on private property rights is in the form of Federal & State estate taxes and other inheritance taxes, which have abolished or at least greatly diluted the right of private property owners to determine the disposition and distribution of their estates upon their death.

    4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

    We call it government seizures, tax liens, "forfeiture" Public "law" 99-570 (1986);

    5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

    The Federal Reserve System, created by the Federal Reserve Act of Congress in 1913, is indeed such a "national bank" and it politically manipulates interest rates and holds a monopoly on legal counterfeiting in the United States.

    6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the state.

    In the U.S., communication and transportation are controlled and regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) established by the Communications Act of 1934 and the Department of Transportation and the Interstate Commerce Commission (established by Congress in 1887),

    7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

    While the U.S. does not have vast "collective farms" (which failed so miserably in the Soviet Union), we nevertheless do have a significant degree of government involvement in agriculture in the form of price support subsidies and acreage alotments and land-use controls. The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture. As well as the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Evironmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.


    8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of Industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

    We call it the Social Security Administration and The Department of Labor. The National debt and inflation caused by the communal bank has caused the need for a two "income" family. Woman in the workplace since the 1920's, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Federal Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000. And I almost forgot...The Equal Rights Amendment means that women should do all work that men do including the military and since passage it would make women subject to the draft.


    9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.

    We call it the Planning Reorganization Act of 1949 , zoning (Title 17 1910-1990) and Super Corporate Farms, as well as Executive orders 11647, 11731 (ten regions) and Public "law" 89-136.


    10. Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc.

    People are being taxed to support what we call 'public' schools, which train the young to work for the communal debt system. We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based "Education" .

    The Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx

    To the true communist, religion is poison. Lib-Com groups like the ACLU will defend any group to bring down the prevailing religion of the US, Christianity.

    This ignorance among the left is just too widespread to bode well for the future of the country, especially if their numbers continue to grow.
    There's just so much whining because we recognize more than one religion, it's childish. No one is trying to break "culture", but government cannot discriminate and I'd we allow one religion to fbe displayed on public land, we open ourselves up for needing to allow more.

    Nothing more than that. I suggest you figure out how to handle it.

    So? According to you, but not to everyone. You think that just because you think this Satan is bad that you get to censor everybody to keep out displays? That's rather egotistical.

    No, Christians don't destroy other displays. One lady pushed over a silly satanic display, who's only purpose was to mock Christians in the first place.

    Santa Claus is based on a saint. You know, a religious figure. I'd say that's pretty much a "religious implication".
