    Please try to have a discussion like a human.

    So the Postmaster at a Post Office, who of his own volition puts up Christmas decorations is actually a puppet of the Federal Government bent on pushing their Christian Agenda, which is clearly outlined in the many laws regulating, nay FORCING, him to do so?! MY GOD! HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN SO BLIND!?!
    Nope, didn't say that.

    Hanging your hat on this notion that these lawn decorations are somehow legislated onto the front lawn is silly.
    Yet they are.

    Right off the bat, we're going to have some issues I can tell...No precise definition? well you must love that since you don't like dictionaries or words with concrete definitions.
    If you actually need a definition, that's why you're so hopelessly confused by this stuff.

    You're woefully ignorant about this stuff, and it shows. You're not smart enough to realize it, so you argue from ignorance. That's your problem, not mine.[/QUOTE]

    Wintergrasp is over. It was good fight. We lost the fortress and lost the battle but the defenders usually do. The battle was long and both sides put up one hell of an effort with the maximum 240 players showing up to represent. It was a great HK soak.

    Your post 197, you said:

    In a nutshell:

    1. The First Amendment says you can't "respect an establishment of religion."

    2. To me, that means the government can't endorse, or appear to endorse, a religion, or religion in general.
    3. That applies to the state governments too (14th amendment).
    4. Public land is the government - it is owned and controlled by the government.
    5. Therefore, IF the government puts up a religious display, or allows someone to put one up without allowing any other religious displays, its the same thing as the government declaring that there is an official religion, and that would be a violation of the First amendment.

    It's not like this isn't found all over the place in the caselaw though.
    I'm quoting your entire post for context, and bolded what I responded to in red.

    You were clearly paraphrasing the first amendment "in a nut shell" with partial quotes of the amendment with your own words.

    You did not merely quote the 1st amendment as you are now claiming.


    ***
    In your post 197, you said that I am forbidden by law from respecting religion.

    Oh, the irony!

    Nope, didn't say that.
    Sarcasm and theatrics, not quoting what you said.

    Yet they are.
    You have yet to show me where they are, I can't find it. I must be biased or ignorant. or blind.


    If you actually need a definition, that's why you're so hopelessly confused by this stuff.
    I give you all that, and you give me this crap? You're the one hung up on definitions and meanings.

    You're woefully ignorant about this stuff, and it shows. You're not smart enough to realize it, so you argue from ignorance. That's your problem, not mine.
    I'm sorry, what did you say Mr. Kettle?
