    Just like Huckabee, isn't she. I am terribly afraid of the fundamentalist.
    So, you call her a "fundamentalist" b/c she simply believes in God? You do realize you just labeled 75% of the entire planet with that right?

    No it wouldn't. Sure, it would be nice if they put up other symbols, but they don't have to. It's up to the community as to what they want displayed on their public land. End of story. If they want only a manger scene, so be it. So long as none of this is being codified into law where people are compelled to follow a certain god; there's nothing the federal government can rightfully do about it.

    Christmas as a federal Holiday is unconstitutional. See, it's got CHRIST in there...and you can't have CHRIST in a law! 1st Amendment just won't allow it!

    LOL Yeah! Its separation of church and state! Wait, that isn't in the Constitution either.... never mind
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Wrong.

    The community cannot vote to disregard the Constitution. The Constitution doesn't say that some vague, nondenominational "god" isn't religion. That's absurd.

    Wrong again.

    Christmas is a federal holiday because 95% of the workforce would take it off with vacation time anyway, so there's no point in keeping the office open.

    The Constitution doesn't speak to public displays of religion, even on public land. As such, it falls to the States and the Communities to decide. The only thing the Constitution says is that Congress will make no law to infringe upon the free practice and expression of religion. Which is what I said, so long as they don't codify these things into law which compel someone to worship a particular god, the community can do as they like.

    The First Amendment clearly applies to public land.

    The only thing the Constitution says is that Congress will make no law to infringe upon the free practice and expression of religion.
    No, that's not all it says, and you know it.

    Which is what I said, so long as they don't codify these things into law which compel someone to worship a particular god, the community can do as they like.
    I'm not the only one who thinks you're wrong, the courts think so too.

    No, its a federal holiday because Congress voted on it and Grant signed it.
