IT'S A NATIVITY SCENE, OH MY!

How did this happen? Who put that thing up? Is this on public land? It must be Unconstitutional! Call the ACLU! Someone hurry and file a lawsuit! It's a Nativity Scene! Sound the Civil Defense Sirens! Call out the National Guard!

OH MY!  Where did it come from? Did it just evolve out of thin air? Or was there a big explosion in outer space, and it grew into a barn, a manger, and the baby Jesus, OH MY! Atheist's shriek with all the shrillness of Hell itself as if the Baby Jesus was some kind of deadly disease or something. One of these people recently had the audacity to refer to the Nativity as an insult. An insult too what? his intelligence? Don't make me laugh HAHAHAHA! TOO LATE!

Christmas is the favorite time of year for the Lawless few too climb out from under their rocks and protest against the traditional symbols of Christmas, and parade their willful ignorance for everyone too see.  They apply a definite anti-Christian bias, and show what hateful bigots they are.

What a shame that in a free nation where we are supposed to have freedom of religion, and free expression of ideas that a minority comprised of a few narrow minded neanderthals, have to spoil it for the rest of us by attacking the symbols of Christmas.


Take down that banner! Remove that Nativity scene! You can't sing that particular song!

Their ridiculous demands seem to drown out the sweetness of the season. So much for peace on earth and good will towards men? Atheists have the right not to have to believe in God, but they do NOT have the right to harass those who do believe, or attack their beliefs. They continue to attempt to use the worn out lie of Separation of Church and State to weed out Jesus from his own birthday celebration.

How would the Atheist like it if they were locked out of their own birthday party, while all the guests exchanged gifts and celebrated the day minus every thought of them?

It's called CHRISTMAS! that is CHRISTmas! Without Christ, there is NO CHRISTMAS!

It just becomes another holiday to act like a bunch of greedy, materialistic, overstuffed jerks!

Herman Cain said this "Stupid people are Ruining America", and that includes those from the ACLU, and the various secularist groups that are attacking Christmas cause their afraid of the true meaning of the day. It's time for Americans to stand up to the GRINCHES, and just tell them to SHUT UP!

Merry CHRISTmas!

Why you direct your ire at those seeking to uphold the Constitution rather than those trying to circumvent it is not apparent. To the extent you think the government's religious display a trifle that can safely be overlooked, you might heed James Madison's argument against a mere three pence tax proposed in his day for support of churches: "The free men of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise, and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle. We revere this lesson too much soon to forget it. Who does not see that the same authority which can establish Christianity, in exclusion of all other Religions, may establish with the same ease any particular sect of Christians, in exclusion of all other Sects? That the same authority which can force a citizen to contribute three pence only of his property for the support of any one establishment, may force him to conform to any other establishment in all cases whatsoever?" Memorial and Remonstrance Against Religious Assessments (1785). In other words, if you let the government get away with illegitimate trifles, you'll be hard put to later defend against more serious abridgments of the Constitution.

Your confusion about why someone would object to government Christmas displays brings to mind the commonly heard canard that this somehow is about people easily offended or faking offense. We’re not talking, though, about the freedom of individuals to say or do something others find offensive; we have that freedom. We’re talking about the government weighing in to promote religion. Under our Constitution, our government has no business doing that--regardless of whether anyone is offended (and regardless of how many or few favor or disfavor any particular religion or religious event). While this is primarily a constitutional point, it is one that conservatives--small government conservatives--should appreciate from a political standpoint as well. While the First Amendment thus constrains government from promoting (or opposing) religion without regard to whether anyone is offended, a court may address the issue only in a suit by someone with "standing" (sufficient personal stake in a matter) to present the court with a "case or controversy"; in order to show such standing, a litigant may allege he is offended or otherwise harmed by the government's failure to follow the law. The question whether someone has standing to sue is separate from the question whether the government has violated the Constitution.
