    I'm pretty sure religious speech is covered by the First Amendment. This point was that not only can the government not impose a religion on anyone, they also cannot stop you from practicing your religion.

    You militant atheists are assholes

    Ffs. We're still waiting for Thanksgiving.
  • This going to be one of those "there's no such thing as an evangelistic atheist" smirkfests, isn't it. I'm gonna get some sleep.

    You see, there wouldn't be an issue if the Christians hadn't vandalized the displays that Atheists, also expressing their very equal first amendment rights, put up. It's a public space. The Christians do not get special privileges for their displays over those of other faiths or lack thereof.

    But since the Christians went and vandalized the other displays, the city decided to cancel the whole thing rather than have the same kind of trouble this year. Now, the city's decision to try to avoid conflict may not be the correct decision, but don't blame the atheists for putting them in the position they were in to make such a decision.

    This.

    No different than the anti-drugs and anti-drinking crowd. They just want other people to be miserable. Worthless, the lot of them.

    "Scenes" are not speech, you retard. You want to hand out leaflets or preach in the park, go ahead. If you want to act out the nativity with live people, feel free. But if you want to put up a scene and then leave it, you need a permit, just as if you were putting up a billboard.

    And as someone pointed out earlier, they'd have continued permission if someone hadn't chosen to vandalize the atheists' display last year.

    Okay, you got me to read the rest of the article. I only read about half of it the first time around. So some shiat got vandalized. That seems to me to be a criminal matter, but to say there wouldn't be an issue if it wasn't for that vandalism is somewhat dishonest. Activist atheists obviously saw an issue which is why they trolled the Christians with their displays of Poseidon and Flying Spaghetti Monsters - and that's their right of free speech to do so too.

    I find it sad, I'm not religious but I'm not against religion either. If you want to celebrate your god or even multiple gods I'm not going to show up at your celebration just to shiat all over it. If you want to protest a religion, let's be specific about it. Protest the Catholic church sheltering pedophiles if you want. That's something even Catholics can support.


    But you just look like assholes when you show up to mock those who have different beliefs than you do - even though that is your right. The First Amendment does protect your right to be an asshole and to make a fool of yourself. I'm suggesting that it might be wiser not to do so.
  • And people wonder why we Americans are so divided. We are more content with pissing in everyone's coffee instead of live and let live
  • doglover: They just want other people to be miserable.


    No, that would definitely be the religious folks. Religion is pretty much a system for inducing misery while making your victims feel like they deserve it and should be enjoying it. But that has nothing to do with this thread.
  • I want to put up a scene about the conception, but the city wouldn't let me.

    They were all like, "Mary was a virgin, she wouldn't do double penetration on her first time." I still think God could have talked her into it.

    Do get me started on my portrayal of Jesus crowning, the didn't want that scene either. The Jesus the stupid Catholics use looks like a three month old, not a newborn. You'd think they'd know what one looks like with the way the shiat them out.

    Spot on.

    That is not trolling. That's getting equal time. Poseidon is as legitimate a deity as any other, and we have equal reason to believe in him as we do the judeochristolamic deity. If the state gives one religious group space, then they must give everyone space. That's the best reason for keeping government away from religious holidays.
  • Everyone above this post is an asshole, everyone below this post is an idiot.

  • Want someone think of the tiny sect of poor oppressed Christians?

    There are plenty of other, better, reasons.
