    So cry some more. Oh boo hoo it's a free country and you don't like how it played out. It doesn't mean the atheists did anything more than exercise a right. I don't understand why people cannot live by the duties and consequences of freedom.

    Jesus Christ Ikari, I will say it yet AGAIN. My argument has nothing at all to do with rights, anything illegal etc. They were stupid and the vandals were stupid. It was moronic and disrespectful on both parts.

    Has nothing to do with freedom or any anger at all as I don't really care. They both lost that privileged anyway. More mountains out of mole hills. I am not blaming any one one side over the other, and to assume so is just ignorant or purposely blind on your part as I have been more than clear.

    In fact I will say your wanting to blame unknown parties and assume they are Christians is closer to some stupid agenda than anything I have said. In fact I think you are projecting at this point.

    No argument so now you resort to personal attacks. Very classy.

    Just so I get this right, these churches are suing the government claiming their rights to freedom of speech were violated because the government wouldn't provide them a soapbox and place in the park?

    Found this gem lower down...



    So the city ended the practice because the religulous were vandalizing the other displays.

    These type of overzealous atheists are as annoying as the Westboro folks.

    If you don't believe in God and think the Christian faith is a fairy tale, then a Nativity Scene is just some quaint little tradition the villagers engage in.

    When you hear the word "God" in your daily lives, can't you just define that for yourselves as a three-letter word for a faith in science and reason? God can mean whatever you want it to mean. These atheists seem like they're paying too much attention to something they don't believe in. Do atheists get offended when they see a Mickey Mouse or Snoopy xmas display? They're just made up characters in a story people tell their children.

    Christmas means different things to people of different faiths. My Jewish friends always said it meant short lines at the movies on Dec 24. But when these Atheist assholes put up displays mocking peoples faith, it's the same thing as protesting funerals with God Hates Fags posters. They are doing it just to get attention and push peoples buttons. They're being very organized and aggressive public trolls.

    So their displays got vandalized? Then I say God has spoken through his people

    Not a personal attack, just a statement of fact. The ones responsible for the cancellation are the vandals, not the atheists. Sorry if your personal bias wishes it was more. But reality is as it is. Deal with it.

    Blatant personal attack and hyperbole, period.

    Please don't insult my intelligence. Again they were both party's to it, period. One instigated and the other broke the law. If you can't see the reality, that it's on you.

    "Religions are all alike -- founded on fables and mythologies." Another sign read, "Happy Solstice."
    I don't find that offensive at all. I agree with it 100 percent. The fact that the atheist signs were vandalized shows how much bigotry exists against atheists.

    Some tend to whine and cry about personal attacks when they have no rational defense for their arguments.
