    Meh, there's evidence that Jefferson was an atheist, so perhaps not. Which is to the point that this is just supposition and we can't made decisions in the modern era on the supposition of what the founders may have done. There's a lot to learn from the teachings and warnings of the Founders, but we can't pretend to know anymore than what they had recorded.

    Who decides on these limitations?

    Ideally the limitation to rights is that they may not infringe upon the rights of others. So while, for instance, Satanists can put up a display of their own on public grounds they cannot simultaneously block other religious displays or burn down a church.

    Unrepresented may have had other limitations in mind, not the simple infringements you mention.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Still comes down to religion on public property, shouldn't happen, plenty of private property out there to put up displays.
