    I don't guess you know too many atheists, then.

    You must mean public displays that are illegal. People often report the fact when they see a crime in progress.

    Sorry. You want your display, you have to take theirs with it. If you don't like the rules, go find some nice private property to play on. None of the rules apply there. You can do whatever you like.

    Most of your post above is pretty much meaningless, so I'll just concentrate on the last paragraph.

    I can tolerate and even enjoy other's holiday displays. Unfortunately, I also have tolerate all the douchebags too who apparently must belittle others in order to make themselves feel good. Sounds like a personal problem.

    As far as I can tell, the sign is merely a brief seasonal summary of atheistic understandings and some reasons for joining them. No worse than some Christmas carols when you think about it.

    That's bull and you know it. That sign was created and placed where it was for the purposes of being snarky.

You can't put the Ten Commandments in a courthouse. You can't put a manger scene on the City Hall lawn. You can designate an area where citizens of all faiths and none can express their views, but you have to understand that all of them might try to do that. If you establish a lottery for display plots somewhere and atheists win 18 of the 20 drawings, that's too bad. No do-overs on that account.
    The way they try to make their point is disrespectful. It's that condescending attitude, that all lefties embrace, that pisses everyone else off. It's not enough to just petition a removal; you people have to spawn stunted spirits like that mysogynist ape, Bill Maher, to put some stank on it!

    Political Correctness is a tool. It's an instrument of hypocrisy the Left uses to try and keep everyone else in line. Your stupid comparison to common courtesy has nothing to do with political correctness. As I said before: PC deals with race, gender and it also has to do with ensuring non-conservatives getting the upper hand. Common courtesy is pure and simple. Mutual respect. That's it.

    That too. As an atheist I can't stand Christmas or any religious symbols and must try to belittle other people in order to prevent my spontaneous combustion around religious expression.

    Nope, that's too close. As an atheist I cannot let it stand.
