    Most have said it was wrong, a couple maybe have said it was OK or that the woman should get a medal.

    But yeah, I mean there isn't really much to this topic. One cannot run around vandalizing these displays, regardless or religion or motivation.

    It is a good thing then that those people will choose to uphold the law instead of your biased feelings.

    I am correct that they have never lifted a finger to denfend the right itself. Talking about it in a ACLU pow-wow is not defending it in court. The ACLU will defend about anyone for "freedom of what they think freedom of speech is"---even the NRA. But of course they won't defend a government of the people, by the people and for the people to have religious displays.
    The ACLU Is Not Evil | Christianity Today


    For example, in 2001, the group interceded with a school district in Michigan that had deleted a high school senior's yearbook entry because she included a Bible verse. In 2002, the ACLU filed a brief on behalf of a pastor associated with Operation Rescue who was prevented from participating in a parade because his pro-life poster showed a photograph of an aborted baby. And last September, the organization joined a lawsuit on behalf of a New Jersey second-grader who was not allowed to sing "Awesome God" in a school talent show. (All of these examples are easily accessible on several Web pages now devoted to defending the ACLU 's record on Christianity.)
    oh look, its the ACLU defending religious displays at a government institution.

    http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2012/J...s-Chick-fil-A/

    The American Civil Liberties Union, which supports gay rights and other liberal issues, recently said the restaurant should not be discriminated against for its words and opinions.

    Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy has publicly stated his belief in God and the biblical definition of marriage as between a man and a woman.

    Following his comments, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said they plan to protest by banning Chick-fil-A restaurants in their cities.

    Menino has since backed off the idea, but the ACLU warned other government leaders not to join in the type of threats the mayors made
    oh look its the ACLU defending christians in a private business setting.

    But they have the same right as other religions that are displaying things. If you let one religion display, you need to let all display, otherwise it isn't freedom of religion...is it?
    Nowhere did I call for an end to Satanists right to worship. They are certainly ignorant but trying to stamp out ignorance is also a futile task.

    Nonetheless, you do have a flair for the banal.

    OK, do you think the satanists should be allowed to have their display up with the other religions? Yes or no?

    Next time try with something rational, plausible and legal.

    At least as much as the stupid question that I was responding to or for that matter your posts.
