    That's not your call, in terms of what the government should do. Your entire opinion is based in your religious opinion, which is an invalid basis upon which the government may act.

    No, it was to torture and murder in the name of Christianity, for the grave and mortal sin of not being Christian. So much for Christianity having any authority is to what is or is not "morally wrong."

The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose... the Greek and the Roman followed, and made a vast noise, and they are gone...The Jew saw them all, and is now what he always was... All things are mortal but the Jew..." -Mark Twain, from Concerning the Jews

    I agree. If Florida didn't allow the evil of religious display in public there would be no issue.

    Oh well, evil isn't against the Constitution, so you get to enjoy it like the rest of us.

    It's like a vampire can not exist if he do not believe in god. If some of the tenants of vampirism is adversion to Holy water and a crucifix...then there must not be any atheist vampires.

    By that logic, you can't say this is a $religion country either because not all parts are religious.

    I guess we are just nothing...

    No, creating Satan and allowing him to cause suffering is heinous evil.

    #$religion, I like it. This is the sort of mess you get into when you try to paint the whole country with a broad brush. It would be better if Unrepresented had said the government was secular, as that would be both on-topic and true.

    While I don't agree with the woman who lost it, regarding the action she took, how is it that in every other case you are in here arguing this morphing definition of "democracy" to suit any argument, yet when it is Christianity, all of the sudden that disappears?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    A majority of people may claim that Christianity is their faith...that no more makes America a vanilla country. Or a coke nation.

    Preference is irrelevant.
