    By the same regards is saying Islam is a religion of violence considered the same? There are many Muslim bashing threads here as well. Just sayin.

    Nah, forgetfulness, it was something I had down pat and froze up on.

    They don't just hand out 100% in college, usually. Generally it takes a good amount of ability for subtle thought.
    Really depended on the class at my Alma Mater, but the one we're talking about required alot more brain power than most.

    Depends on how far it goes, similar to some of the comments about Christianity. I've warned posters for both. I've also warned people for bashing atheists. Depends on degree.

    It really would depend on the sect of Islam, which tenets they follow, and if you have the facts to back it up or not, truth is a defense to any first amendment question.
    There are many Muslim bashing threads here as well. Just sayin.
    I don't participate in them however because it is just as bad to me as christian bashing, I have quite a few Muslim and Hindu friends and they are terrific people.

    I have no issue with allowing, say, 1 square centimeter per documented practitioner of a given religion, as recorded by the US Census burro, if you are arguing for fair representation.

    #1. Include all religions and put symbols from every religion on government property or.
    #2. Don't put any religious symbols up thus not supporting one over another?

    Anything other then those 2 would be a violation of the 1st.
    Symbols do not violate the fist amendment. Not at all. Not when they accurately represent the population of that religion, not when they disproportionately represent the population, not ever.

    You are chosing to ignore my last post and that's suspect.

    Take your pick.

    Also I have stated Christianity is a fairy tale, therefore I have insulted a religion. According to you those are fighting words, go ahead and try to have me arrested, thus proving your point wrong.
    You're under arrest in the name of the law. Reach fror the sky.

The atheists need to come up with something that delivers money into the coffers if they are so smart, or just sit back and let the Christians fall all over themselves, what's the big deal? I think it's a lot of nothing about nothing.

    The Christians are putting a little babe in a manger with Mary, and Joseph, a couple cows, and a lamb. Who knows if these people even existed. Let them have their fun for crissakes and quit making a mountain out of a molehill is my philosophy.

    Also, people are pretty smart, and they can figure stuff out on their own most of the time. This is just hatred and vengefulness. Doesn't speak well of atheists. Why waste so much time going to court? Really silly!
    If it's all so petty and meaningless then why do xians insist on it?

    People are not smart for the most part, due mostly to lack of education and/or decent education.

    Religious people have places, lots of them, to put their symbols on. Their nativity scenes can be scaled to be as large or as small as they deem appropriate in those places and they don't even have to pay taxes for those places, it's free for them. So why do they insist on having them on property I help pay for? And let's not kid ourselves about the establishment of religion shall we? I think we all know what's been going on in our country for more than 200 years and it's the toning down of that practice that's making xians scream and cry.
