    Only disagreed with your "faith" statement. Otherwise I definitely agree.

    Now I get it, sorry, lack of sleep, yeah, it would be an attack as per the example you set out, but I would be laughing at the ignorance of the attackers, not the attacked, thought you would be doing the same.

    My problem is with people saying that it should be removed because it's "insulting" or "offensive".
    I think they should remove it in the interest of good will on their own valition, however do not believe they should be legally compelled to do so since the governer allowed it to stay. I have stated that if a fight or riot breaks out because of the sign that they could potentially be liable criminally for it, which is why I stated it is potentially illegal quite a few posts back.

    Good, then let them deal with it should the event occur.

    whether you believe in god or not, christmas time is time for togetherness and enjoying time with family and friends. and its one of the few times out of the year when most people set aside differences and and act nice towards their fellow man
