    And, very Un-American.

    You ran out of an argument a long time ago...now you are just forced to call people "lib"

    Pathetic.

    OK, then what does it matter? They get to put up the display as part of expression, the lady gets punished for vandalism. End of story, yes?

    I think I'm pretty well wised up on this subject. I know what the Supreme Court has said about it, and I know it has not interpreted the First Amendment to require any damned thing any bunch of crackpots or anyone who resents Christianity wants official approval for to be tolerated. On the other hand, in one case it saw no constitutional violation in allowing a KKK display featuring the Klan cross right outside a state building.

    Please provide a single quote of me stating I am against freedom of religion. Or, conversely, in true lib fashion, you could keep repeating the lie. My money's on lie.

This happen with Reconstuction, but the Communist ACLU didn't arrive until the 20th century.

    So bad had been the ACLU in aiding and abetting American communists that various legislative committees, federal and state, considered whether it was a communist front. The 1943 California Senate Fact-Finding Committee on Un-American Activities reported that the ACLU "may be definitely classed as a communist front." The committee added that "at least 90 percent of its [the ACLU's] efforts are expended on behalf of communists who come into conflict with the law." That 90-percent figure was consistent with a major report produced by Congress a decade earlier, January 17, 1931.

    Now as the agenda of all commies is for absolute control of public education by the government and party, one of their most famous cases was Brown vs Board of Education. This case was vital to destroying the freedom of US citizens to run their own school districts, allow school prayer and control the content of what was taught.

    You are either a big fan of the ACLU, or a memeber. Sad.
    I'm indeed a big fan of the ACLU. Any body that serves to protect and to enhance my liberties through peaceful means is something I support.

    If you're using the Un-American Activities views during the red scare years as damning evidence, you're clearly grasping for straws.

    I'm still waiting for you to show me the ACLU's legal involvement in communist economic philosophy. You keep cutting and pasting right wing screeds and missives instead.

    You are displaying it. You want to take down religious displays from religions you don't agree with.

    It is blatant, obvious, and everyone sees it but you.

    Either have every religion represented, or none. How freaking hard is that for you to understand?

    That you have to constantly resort to "lib" just shows your increasing desperation.

    A threadbare excuse is that one isn't a communist because they they don't advocate full ecomonic control by the central government.

    If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck---it's a duck! All but blind apologists can see the ACLU as a neo-communist front. You can't discredit the long history of the ACLU being founded and populated by communists. And you can't disprove the many cases of the ACLU defending communists over the years.

    Of course you, nor the ACLU could give a rat's *** about the USC and the Bill of Rights. The ACLU does not allow the 2nd Amendment to be defended---as communists do not allow anyone but their own revolutionaries to be armed. The ACLU forbade free speech among their own ranks. What hypocrites.

    Battle for the ACLU - USATODAY.com

    So which of the ten tenets of communism do you support? If you support most of them, then wouldn't you "be mostly a communist?"---just like the ACLU is mostly a communist front?

    This display was allowed to be put up this year because the city prior was threatened with law suits by an Atheist organization under the guise of the "Temple of Satan". This isn't the first year they have attempted this.
    Festivus pole in tribute to a holiday created on "Seinfeld" that satirizes the commercialism of Christmas and a display by the Church of The Flying Spaghetti Monster, which mocks beliefs that a god created the universe and argues instead that the universe was created by a plate of pasta and meatballs.

    The Satanic Temple display was rejected as "grossly offensive" last year, but this year — following threats of legal action from the Americans United for Separation of Church and State — the state Department of Management Services gave its approval.
    The Supremes have been murky on their rulings in regard to religious displays. The city could take on the case but that means a lot of cost in legal fees.

    This Atheist activist group is probably the one behind placing the Satanic coloring books in a school that also occurred in Florida for children to take home because a church in the area dropped off flyers/programs about an event for youth they were having in the neighborhood.

    The majority of people are disgusted with this group's actions. If anyone could be described using the word "intolerant" it would be them. This manger scene represents the historical account in a faith that the majority of the people in that locality claim to be. The state constitution recognizes they are "grateful to Almighty God". It was placed on state property not federal. Yet somehow state and local governments have lost control because of a few justices who interpret the Establishment Clause too broadly.
