    I don't understand how that's allowed. I mean with atheists around, someone should really be out belittling people until it gets taken down.

    Well there's no choice. Atheists cannot stand being around religious symbols or words. Where's that at? I'm going to there and start belittling people myself before more atheists catch fire due to these reckless displays.

    Who really cares what it is called???

    We have much more important issues to deal with.

    How is it any more snarky than a manger scene? Here is the text...

    "At this season of the Winter Solstice, may reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds."

    This is a general statement of what atheists tend to believe. Why would those beliefs be snarky while statements of belief in sky gods and virgin births would not?

    Meanwhile the sign is a holiday tradition. This is the 17th year one has stood during December in the Wisconsin State Capitol rotunda for example.

    LOL! Ever mired in the abyss of pop-culture. Bill Maher is an entertainer whose job is to draw ratings. He isn't trained as any sort of expert on any of the topics discussed on his show. As for condescension, the right-wing has more than earned what little they get.

    Well, that's quite a paranoid delusion on your part, but you can certainly believe such things if you like. Meanwhile, and as any serious source would confirm, political correctness can fairly be viewed as a harm-reduction initiative, one that was and still is needed in the face of the wanton abuse and debasement of some parts of our population by others. Some of that latter group are of course by now a lost cause. They were raised to value hatred and disrespect and they aren't about to be diverted from it now. But we can use them as negative examples in showing the next generation how truly ugly a state of bigotry can be. In that way, they too may serve in advancing our pursuit of a more just and inclusive society.

    Yes, we do. But Bill O'Reilly has now budgeted the bunch of revenue he nets each year from claiming that somebody has once again declared war on Christmas, so people who don't actually go to church and don't actually follow Christ's teachings get all bent out of shape every December and start or push threads like this one.
