    I will say again somehow you know who did the vandalism? Did not think so. So that has nothing to do with what I am saying. It has nothing to do with the vandalism or the law. It does not absolve them of the fact he was being a prick. End of story.

    On another forum I spent weeks debating with some devout catholics over priestly pedophilia. They insisted it didn't exist and all the accusers were money grubbing gold diggers.

    Once you accept the gigantic, vengeful stay puft marshmallow man in the sky, all other cognitive dissonance and insanities become easier to swallow.

    Why does it matter who did the vandalism? According to the articles here and elsewhere, the city stopped the practice due to the vandalism issue. Being a prick has nothing to do with the issue, but in my view whoever did the vandalism was the prick. By your admission, we have no real evidence who that was

    Well Spanky, you have idiots among every group. Don't judge God by his fan club. You will get the wrong idea every time as we are all just human.

    That is what I have been saying. I don't care who did it, or why. My only point was the Christian group and the atheist group were being pricks. The atheists on this board seem to think because I don't care about that aspect, somehow I am wrong to say they are part of the problem or being pricks.

    I don't even care about the city stopping it, not like the religious/atheist groups don't have other parks etc. So the city is well within their rights to do something about it no matter who is ultimately responsible for the vandalism. Makes both sides no less pricks and part of the problem.

    while i absolutely disagree with your position on this topic, there is a lot of truth in that signature-worthy statement below

    That's insane. It's like saying don't judge Hitler by the Gestapo.

    For atheists, humanists and agnostics who may not believe in the Christian God, who believe the scriptures were written by men, all they have to go by is "the fan club".

    For all practical purposes, your statement is ridiculous.
