Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
That about sums it up.So the city ended the practice because the religulous were vandalizing the other displays.
What you're really saying is that nobody ought to criticize religion and that religion ought to be given extra rights.
It will be a meaner joyless world we'll live in when atheists, "the fastest growing segment of the population" , get their way.
Maybe we'd be better off if the government did what they did and just didn't do the displays anymore. Rather than getting involved in religious battles.
