    The one with the confederate flag is offensive.

    That's shoving stupid in our face.

    Also, the monkey one--I don't get it. Anytime you have to think too hard about a sign, they failed.

    No it isn't, it's hilariously stupid but not offensive unless you really do have way too thin a skin.

    Really, you don't get it? I think the problem is not with the sign...

    That's the point. You're not supposed to think about them. If you do, you realize how absurd they really are.

    Re: Atheist messages displace CA park nativity scenes

    As someone who was raised a Christian but became an atheist at the age of twelve, I think these atheist organizations are silly. Anyway, my only reaction to the article is I think that there should be a stipulation that if the displays aren't used after a week or two a different organization that wants to use them should get them. If the atheists want displays, they need to actually put **** to display in them.

    I don't remember people suggesting that Westboro people are DICKS equated to stating they shouldn't have freedom of speech...so exactly how is saying that the Athiests Groups were being dicks equating to the "religious" wanting to infringe on the absolution of Freedom of Speech

    Oh, by the way....hate to inform you but Freedom of Speech isn't absolute. Look up laws regarding fighting words, obscinity laws regarding speech in public, libel and slander laws, and others.
    No need to patronize me, I'm well aware of those laws and the limitations of Freedom of Speech. My problem is the level of outrage being expressed by some in this thread at the atheist groups and the lack of outrage toward the idiots who thought a lottery for PUBLIC space during a holiday season celebrated by several religions and the secular alike was a great idea. And every winner gets 9 cages? Not one, not two, but 9?

    This was poorly done and conceptually stupid. I certainly wouldn't have done it, but there are dingbats in every segment of society. Islam has fundamentalist kooks who like to blow stuff up, Christianity has fundamentalist kooks who like to parade around with "God Hates Fags" signs, Judiasm has fundamentalist kooks who like to burn mosques in the West Bank, and Catholics have fundamentalist kooks who like to dress up as priests and molest alter boys. Secular, non-religious groups have kooks too, like kooks who think it's a great idea to bust Santa, Satan and Jesus in a holiday display.

    The level of outrage in this thread is unreasonable, as shown by the amount of anger you've directed toward my post... and me! I certainly didn't mention the Westboro church in my brief, but apparently extremely offensive post. And the last I heard, "I don't believe what you believe" is not covered under the "fighting words" exceptions clause.

    Personally, I think the groups putting their "message" across in this manner was foolish. But were they "dicks"? I'd have to meet them personally to have an opinion on that.
