    No it wasn't, it was "designed" for everyone. What an utterly silly thing to say. Do you have any evidence to support your ridiculous assertion?

    Furthermore, how do Christmas decorations cause, ""absolute interloping" and suppression control"?

    Those are not the satanists who are putting up the displays. Nor are they affiliated with them in any way.

    Here's a ruling on Christmas decorations that appeared only a few years later.

    "the majority held that the County of Allegheny violated the Establishment Clause by displaying a crèche in the county courthouse, because the "principle or primary effect" of the display was to advance religion within the meaning of Lemon v. Kurtzman, when viewed in its overall context."

    On the contrary, not associated with any religion so it is quite secular.

    Referring to God is not associated with religion? On what planet?

    The Supreme Court ruled otherwise.

    Yes, but Communism killed more people, and destroyed more lives, than any other form of government in world history. That should always be mentioned in case there are those with any romantic delusions about what the Communists actually did.

    God is no longer associated with religion? When did this begin?

    Haven't you heard? Actual bona-fide communism has never been tried.

    I guess we've all heard that one by now. They can do it voluntarily but insist that everyone else has to jump in as well.

    I thought the fall of Communism would teach these people a lesson but apparently not. They still walk among us, some in very powerful places.
