YES OR NO:
Has there been any evidence presented to indicate that the atheists in question illegally rigged the lottery for display spots?
Was the nativity display prevented from being displayed, at any time, by the DIRECT action of the atheists who set up their own display?
ANSWER to both: NO.
Your stance on this is hysterical. The atheist display WAS, in fact, vandalized (someone interfered with THEIR right to display their message).
The nativity display was NOT vandalized. It was ultimately removed along with all other displays in response to selective vandalism by city government order.
This is a classic dogmatic revision of reality: the atheist display was in fact the one violated, not the nativity scene.
After further review of the article, the entitlement and oblivious privilege involved is even worse than I expected.
The proponents of the nativity display are whining like little crybabies because they used to not have to deal with many others seeking a display spot. This time, however, instead of their usual FOURTEEN spots, they "only" got two. BooHoo.
Guess what, folks? Welcome to life. Grow a god damn spine already. Newsflash: there are other people in the world. Learn to take turns.
