[QUOTE=LaMidRighter;1057847489]So putting a nativity scene on the lawn of my courthouse isn't attacking my core beliefs?First of all, the first logical fallacy in this is the absolutism of the first amendment, the SCOTUS has already ruled that certain speech is NOT protected, like fighting words, incitement to riot, obscenity, libel, and defamation, you are taking an absolutist stance. Secondly, attacking people's core beliefs right next to a symbol of their core beliefs can be seen as an attack(fighting words) and if said people who felt attacked decided to riot, the onus would most likely be on those who started it, that is, the people who put an atheist slogan right next to a manger scene(incitement to riot), so, it could be seen by those who felt attacked and law enforcement as unprotected speech under the correct circumstances. Third, why attack people in that manner, anyone who believes in decency could make the call you are questioning, who are YOU to judge people's opinions?
Are you talking about the xians who are determined to have their religious displays on government (ie. mine) property? I wonder how far away the nearest church is to that piece of public property?It was in horrendous taste and the people who put it up should be ashamed of themselves.
