    Wow, what a comment. Am I supposed to be devastated by your comment? It is a negative reflection on you, not me. Have you read any of the thread? Do you have an actual counter-argument to make? Do you think christianity should be allowed to do things that other religions do not do? do you have something against fairness?

    You know, you can use the text tools if you want to write in color. Feel free to do so.

Being the case, Why no Satinist's erecting this type of display in say, the ME? I don't think it would be too accepted there.
    What would happen in the Middle East is immaterial to this discussion. As far as I know, they don't have a constitution like ours. So now you're just trying to change the discussion away from who do you think is offended by the nativity itself (rather than being offended at the bias shown if only christians are allowed to post displays)

    Bollocks.

    Government should be neutral towards religions and not display them, that propagates religious freedom for the individual.

    Not arguing that...BTW, How many of the first century stories are verifiable in a 21st century rigor? Not many I suspect....But, you are delving into the whole theory of faith. I am so sorry you seem to have little, but, that doesn't mean that your conclusions are correct, or that mine are false...It only means that you hold a certain opinion at the moment....

    A good article to consider if you would bother to read it, is:

    In context of the question asked that prompted this reply of mine, I don't think it was...We do have something special in this country where people holding different beliefs are not attacked, and/or killed for their dissent. And I believe that you are arguing with someone else, I've already said twice at least in this thread that the woman involved in destroying the Satanic display was wrong for doing so, and deserved to be arrested like she was. But I think that the whole thing defending it in this portion of our discussion is rather a straw argument itself. First, it is not "who I'' think is offended, it is who has stated that they are offended, like yourself. I only asked why, and it has spurred everything but an actual answer from some. If it is that you think that the nativity is a form of proselytizing to you, then I can only suggest that as a free man, you walk away from it, because no one is forcing you to look at it, listen to it, or abide by it....Are there people that can take their faith to an annoying extreme? Heck yeah....Does that exist among those that rail against the existence of religion as well....Um yeah....

    So, are you also against the Satanic display in the statehouse in Florida?

    You don't seem to understand the meaning of "neutral".

    No, it's not about either of those things. It is about a woman defacing a Satanic display that the OP used as a call for religious tolerance. The separation of church and state bulls*** was shoehorned in by the usual suspects.

    I don't answer questions from people who repeatedly dodge questions asked of them so I will ask you for the third time:

    Other than christians taking offense at the Satanists display, who has taken offense at any religious display and why?
