    Branching off the discussion from this article, should the state of florida have even put up the display in the first place?

    Why or why not?
    I thought it was pretty much establish that religious symbols are not allowed in government buildings. Had it been a work of art, maybe I could see it. But why was the thing put up?

    Thats probably all thats needed.
    When you're talking about religions how is any one of them more "real" than the others? The simplest and fairest way is to simply keep religion and government separate.

    If I had to guess...because they allowed a nativity scene. (the one in the Texas capital was paid for with private funds)

    Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don't understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

    So long as they allow any other kind of religious display, they have to allow all religions an equal opportunity to have a display at all. If people want to get rid of the Satanists, they have to be willing to get rid of Christianity too.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    If they allow other religious displays, then yes they should allow the Satanists their ability at expression as well. Overall, I think this whole topic gets blown out of proportion. I'm not so much concerned if there's a nativity scene on public land so long as the government rules by the laws of man, not the laws of gods. But if you're going to allow one, you may have to allow others as well. It's a free country, and this is just a consequence of that freedom.

    It's a ridiculous scenario. No religious display should be allowed in a state capital building but even Satanists don't take themselves seriously. That they managed to get the whatever-it-is put in place in the first place must have had them all grinning and high-fiving, but when the woman vandalized it, and got arrested, well, geez, they must have been gleefully peeing themselves ever since.

    So, like, here's the thing. We have actual, REAL problems. Like, problems that result in actual people getting actually harmed, physically and or financially.



    **** like this should occupy about .001% of our elected and appointed official's time. Solution? No religious **** on public grounds. Period. Can it be any simpler? No. Can allowing ALL religions EQUAL access to public grounds cause increasingly complicated problems? Certainly.
