    You can see a picture of the sign at the link.

    I agree with the Atheists right to display their own religious message next to the nativity scene but I don't agree with the way they are doing it. There is no reason for them to blatantly attack religion in their message. If they would have written the sign describing their believes and the purpose of Winter Solstice without the attacks then there would no issue here.

    Do you think the atheists went to far with the sign? Should they not be able to place a sign at all?

    I would love to agree with the Atheists here but they are making it hard.
    I think their sign should be taken down, because it's inappropriate and lacks manners. We as a society have lost our real manners and etiquette, and we desperately need to get them back.

    I find that the atheistic nut is no more ignorant and arrogant than the religious nut.

The original intent of the winter solstice celebration is the pagan holiday. If original intent holds over actual use then any winter solstice celebration is pagan.
    Evidence for the PURPOSEFUL selection of December 25th for that purpose? Love how you continually ignore the Biblical justification for a late December date that I have already pointed too.

    Is the Easter Bunny part of the religious celebration of Easter? It isn't. Besides, the celebration of Easter in the Catholic world FAR PREDATES the Easter Bunny, which like the Christmas tree, originated in a NON-CATHOLIC area. Easter most definately is a Catholic celebration that has its roots in the Jewish Passover.

    Uhm that's the English version but in other languages there's no mention of Christ or Mass...for example in french it is Noel, in Spanish it's la Navidad and in German it's Weihnachten. I think it's pretty safe to say that English was not the spoken language when the Bible was written nor when Christ lived.

    The French word Nol derives from the Latin word natalis meaning birth.

    Bad manners? Don't remember that being in the Constitution. They're not hurting anyone, let them keep the sign up. Freedom of speech>freedom to not be challenged in your beliefs.

    With all due respect what you're suggesting is incredibly Anti-American. Freedom of Speech gives people the right to post offensive statements whether you think it's appropriate or not. And lacks manners? OMG, really who are you to judge something like this?

    I think the sign is offensive too but I will defend their right to display as I would anyone who is legally expressing Freedom of Speech.

    What you are suggesting is that you want to censor things that are offensive and bad manners which is totally and completely illegal according to the Constitution of the United States. I'm guessing that upon further consideration you do not truly think the sign should be taken down, right?

    So you do not support Freedom of Speech which means that you do not believe in the Constitution of the USA? Are you serious? Just because you're offended by what someone says as is their constitutional right you're willing to burn the Constitution? That is scary to me, sincerely, very scary.

    Some of you talk about bad manners and how offfensive the sign is as if that justifies it's removal. It does not and if it did you would not be living in the USA. Russia or Venezuela perhaps but not the USA.
