You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

"It is written in the eternal constitution that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters." - Edmund Burke
The greater issue here, to me at least, is that these displays need to be protected within glorified chicken coop contraptions. My goodness peope will steal anything that isn't nailed down these days. I just light a candle for non-believers at Mass, they're going to get Christ's good graces whether they like it or not!
I just find it sad that those who consider themselves "evolved" and beyond "childish superstition" would resort to Aesop's dog-in-the-manger tactics. Not very evolved after all.
This was hardly some evil ploy either. It appears they operated within the guidelines of the system. All I see in the story is this faith-based accusation:
"Rather than erecting a full display of their own"...Our belief is that these new applicants have been working together to displace and push out the nativity scenes from the park, rather than erecting a full display of their own," said Hunter Jameson, a spokesman for a coalition of the city's churches.
Hmmm, sage advice. It rings of "We're Christians, we are entitled!"

There's no doubt in my mind that technology, someday in the not so distant future, will uncover the mechanism of death and create the means for immortality.
Religious beliefs are taught - not innate. Religions are culturely created. If you were born in the Amazon jungle to a tribe that believes that a rock on a hill, carved out by nature, with the appearance of a human like being, is the creator of their known world. You would adopt, without question, that belief.
Want to have an open mind - ponder my comments.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
