    Let's go to a public square where they have a Christmas tree and put up a giant menorah right next to it. I guarantee you that Fox "News" will be all over that.

    Aw, waaaahhhhh! Boo-hoo, fundamentalist Christians are gonna have to share their dates on the calendar with those of other beliefs.

    I could post these stories nearly endlessly but I'll let you get Fox News started on this one first. You'll note the problem came up because of those against all displays, not those who only wanted certain displays.

    So my point was wrong, and I openly admitted it. Would you be able to do the same in a similar situation?

    A menorah? Big whoop. Put up a big fat Muslim crescent and see what Fox does.

    Maybe the same as those in NYC did when the mosque was proposed for the area around the WTT memorial?
