    Santa Claus is based on a saint. You know, a religious figure. I'd say that's pretty much a "religious implication".
    Santa is actually pagan in origin, but it doesn't matter why she committed vandalism, what matters is that she vandalized a religious display. And that's what she should be punished for, nothing less and nothing more.

    Be that as it may, she's an idiot for playing right into their hands. There's nothing to defend here (not saying you are), she deserves nothing but criticism as far as I'm concerned.

    Absolutely, but by the same token, painting all Christians as intolerant of other religious displays is idiotic.

    Ah yes, that hostile element is well represented at DP. You'll get to know those, as soon as you see it's post from them, where exactly it's going to go.

    Not all are, not all atheists are out to end religion, not all efforts for religious display are to mock Christians, etc.

    The real problem isn't so much those that are tolerant of religious display in its full, but those who are not. Anyone vandalizing religious displays should be punished for vandalism.

    What is it with the hatred of Christians around here? Why are people soooooo offended by a nativity scene on the little town square? What exactly is offensive about a nativity scene in the first place? Enquiring mimes want to know?

    I think, for the most part, the hatred thing is exaggerated. It exists, but I think the magnitude is not as high as some seem to suggest. There is no problem with nativity scenes on public land, though if you allow it you may have to allow other religious displays.

    Do you support the idiotic "satanic temple" people in their quest to mock Christians?

    Its a religion , yes? Why can't they seek to have their displays on public land? Why is it automatically "mocking"? Couldn't they legitimately be seeking recognition of their religion and the ability to express it on the same level Christianity enjoys? The immediate victim-card doesn't really bolster an argument. How is this mockery instead of expression? Did they just make up the church for the display, or did it exist prior?

    In the end, I support the rights and liberties of the individual be upheld. And if you allow religious display on public land, then it needs to be open to religions which seek equal expression capabilities.
