    If atheists have an alternate message on how to treat their fellow man, I'd be pleased to hear it.
    Well, several of them were on the signs defaced in Santa Monica.

    I don't have to guess. As stated the City of SM cited financial reasons for eliminating the holiday concessions at the park.

I'm not even sure what the current score really is.
    What are you asking me for, ask the city or do your own research.

    As I've said, the arrogance and hubris of christians is awesome.
    Who else expresses Peace, Goodwill and Charity as their expressed philosophy? Is that the atheist message as well?

    In fact this might be a good time to explain what atheists believe and the positive effect their beliefs might have had on the development of the United States.
    It's a lot more complicated than that. What some people could argue are positive effects others could argue are negative effects. Some could point to a number of the darker points of our history and the religious references used by those at the time to justify what was done, while others could say that was merely a product of the times and point out that we now know better. In fact, some would argue that the actual causes of some of these dark moments are debatable. Some might argue whether these were in fact dark moments at all.

    All I know for certain is this: We as a society are simultaneously repulsed by the effects of religious extremism and religious wars elsewhere, while at the same time embracing Christianity as a good moral system for governing at home. Many of those who oppose this government-level embrace of Christianity do so because they know full well that Christianity can be taken to an extreme just as much as any other religion.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    The propensity of certain atheists to paint with a broad brush is also awesome.

    Right, and you said, "I'm guessing the cost of administering and operating it far exceeded the rentals taken in." You don't actually know. When you do, by all means enlighten the rest of us, but until then you're just guessing.

    That's as far as the atheists have come along in their philosophical message? Defacing signs?

    They're going to have to try a little harder if they're to gain any converts.
