Now that we have set forth we have no idea who vandalized. I go back to my original statement which has nothing to do with the law, rights or any other legal aspect...
Both sides were being childish asses.
As soon as you know who did the vandalism, come back and see me, lol.

LOL, I wonder if most Americans know that the so-called 'Pilgrim Fathers' whose survival you celebrate today (it is Thursday the 22nd in the antipodes,) were against celebrating Christmas, and had banned the holiday?

This kind of crap has been going on for decades. When it comes to religious displays on public property, everyone wants their piece of the pie but doesn't want to share. Has been that way since I can remember, and will most likely always be that was until all public entities... states, counties, municipalities... finally get the message, throw up their hands and ban any and all religious displays on public property forever and ever, amen.
Religious or non-religious, there is always a significant percentage of self-indulgent asswipes who want everything for themselves, and nothing for anyone else. Nothing to see here, move along.
only because it would become an infractionPlease don't insult my intelligence.
there was NO instigationAgain they were both party's to it, period. One instigated
those who vandalized were unable to control themselves
that failure does not cause the atheists to become responsible in any way for the vandalism perpetrated
you are making stuff up... and the other broke the law. If you can't see the reality, that it's on you.
had the vandals controlled their response to the legitimate exhibits of those having another belief system there would be no situation to be posting about
I don't see where you are pulling from my post that I believe atheists, wiccans, etc aren't allowed or entitled to promote their belief system (or lack thereof for atheists) either. I never said that. However, I think it's very hypocritical of atheists to claim they are offended by how much Christians put their beliefs out there when they do the same. They have no ground to stand on when they take the "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" approach.

#1 Fact: Yes it was, and it was reported as that, it is baiting at minimum.
#2 Fact: They put up signs insulting all religions. Yes instigation even if not illegal in any way.
#3 Fact: I did not say anything about atheists being responsible, nothing at all. I said the ones who put up the signs, as they are part of the problem.
#4 Please feel free to point out 1 thing I have made up. I know you can't but hell I gave others the opportunity and they fell flat as well.
#5 Last but not least...
We have no idea who the vandals were, none. So your assumption is based on an unknown quantity. That makes your info wrong.

#2 Freedom of expression. There is no right to not be offended so get over it. Rights are rights and to adhere to the principles of freedom you up hold this. One exercising rights is not subject to reprisal just because another may not like what is being said.
#3 The atheists put up the signs and you are blaming them for the actions against them
#4 you are inventing blame for those exercising rights when they has nothing to do with the vandalism
#5 has nothing to do with anything that has been said and is mere deflection.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
