    Santa Claus is based on a saint. You know, a religious figure. I'd say that's pretty much a "religious implication".
    I think the only purpose for silly christian displays on public property is to mock other religions.

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.
    They have admitted the only purpose of the displays are to, "counteract the Nativity scene".

    OK, is that mocking or a desire to have their religious expression recognized? They would believe opposite of the nativity since their god is Satan. So theyd want a disay to coubter the nativity as would likely be in their religion.

    So is it mocking or is it axdesire to have their veiws, which are innately opposite to Christianity, be expressed upon the same stage Christianity is allowed their expression?

    Hey Ikari, you sure you wanna stick to your position that Christian hatred is "exaggerated"?

    I wasn't referring to you, I quoted one of your fellow travelers.

    So you have no evidence for mocking, it's just how you perceive this act. That's what I thought. So are we then to restrict the religious expressions of others based on your unsupported perceptions?

    Indeed, but you don't seem to understand what I had written in that sentence. Finding one post that might be taken as hatred against Christianity does not contradict my statement.

    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.
    Again, can you show me cases where the ACLU has actually defended any of these "communist" ideals? The overwhelming majority of their cases are with free speech and freedom of religion.

    I haven't seen too many cases they've joined in on that include "confiscation of the properties of all emigrants and rebels."

More ignorant people will look at the handful of times that the ACLU defended the Nazis marching in Skokie, or defending a Christian minister here and there. Those were all part of the plan of diversion. It's what the ACLU does 90% of the time to promote Leftist/Communist causes and to remove Christianity from the American people.

    If Christian displays on government land and public school prayer were really violations of the Constitution, then Deist Founders like Madison, Jefferson and Hamilton would never have allowed them in the beginning.

    Another absoulte LIE, that I myself have called the ACLU on is that the ACLU defends the Bill of Rights and the Consititution. That is an absoulte falsehood. The ACLU has never defended the core right of the 2nd Amendment. Their main effort has always been to protect Communists and promote their leftist agenda.
    The reason that the ACLU protected the speech of communists was that the American government had a fairly strong bias towards prosecuting communists during that period.

    The aspect you're not appreciating is that by protecting the most offensive speech, or the most unpleasant of religions, is that it means the rights of everyone else to say or believe what they wish are that much safer. For a person with the user name "Flame Thrower" that should be doubly appreciated.
