    I have the words of the people setting up the "satanic" displays. What more do I need?

    You might have a point if it were only that one post by that one individual, but it's far from that.

    They never said they were mocking, just providing an alternative. You're the one who took alternative to mean mocking. Is that enough to legitimately infringe upon expression or do we have to accept this as a consequence of.freedom, to allow them their expression, protect it, and move on?

    It's all that has been presented, and even then I didn't really get "hatred" from that post. As I said, I think perhaps the magnitude has been exaggerated.

    "Counteract"' and, "alternative" are not synonymous.

    Neither are "counteract" and "mocking".

    Taken with their other statements, it amounts to mockery. But thanks for at least admitting you were off base by referring to it as an alternative.

    These people aren't a church, they don't even worship satan. Their stated goal is to force the removal of all religious displays from public property.

    You seem to have a problem with freedom of religion....when it isn't your religion.

    You almost sound disappointed that there are not more people who bask in the unholy ceremonies of our dark lord.
