In any case, why would a bunch of kids want to sing in a park where the sidewalks are covered with human feces? I can't imagine Union Square in S.F. being much of a "holiday spirit" kind of place under any circumstances.

any attorneys out there up to challenging this POLICY? I don't think it would stand up to a real court-and-public-opinion onslaught....

Well, the new mayor started a program called "care not cash" and the far-left wing media (which is main-stream out here) totally hates it, so that means it must be working...


Here's some govt info on it...

Believe or not, it's not any worse than Time Square in NYC, I believe they have security during business hours, it's right by ritzy hotels and a huge Macy's, it gets really "Christmassy" this time of year...

Union Square - SF

In S.F., public parks are for crack whores and homos in the bushes. There is no place for children, especially Christian (yecch) children!

In that whacked out city, I am amazed that there are two dozen kids that have even heard of Christmas.

They could have run around naked and done perverted acts, and all would have been fine.

OK, OK, I know it's crazy here, but don't forget about the 54,335 of us that voted Bush. There's probably even a Freeper or two lurking around these streets, behind enemy lines...

>>If a kid falls on the step, they're going to automatically sue Rec and Park and me.<< Then bring a paper that the rep of the group...

(Sarcasm on, please. No offense intended.) Then bring a paper that the rep of the group...can use as a poop scoop should the nasty little darlings decide to soil the park with their presence. (sarcasm off)

It will be interesting to see whether children intent on celebrating Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Muslim and Hindu holidays, or pagans anticipating the coming "winter solstice" will also be shooed away from the park. I doubt it. One must not offend people of other faiths. Now, I believe this with all my heart. Why, then, is it deemed acceptable for the thought police and the political correctionists to suppress Christianity and hence to offend the so-called "faith of the majority" by declaring that this faith will offend those who subscribe to the so-called "minority" faiths? We seriously need to expose these multiculturalists for the lowlife ANTICULTURALISTS (even Karl Marx called them the "lumpenproletariat") that they truly are at heart, and to expose their political correctness as the most dangerous form of fundamentalism ever to grab hold of the popular imagination in the United States.

"Separation of church and state" is nowhere to be found in the Constitution, but in the writings of Thomas Jefferson. If truth be told, church (and that means ALL faiths) may enter government, but government may NOT enter the church so defined. In other words, political discourse, in order to be inclusive and all-encompassing, must allow and "tolerate" religious-based discourse. Those who engage in religious discourse must expect to be confronted and insulted for their political conceptions of the state. Government may neither favor nor suppress any religious or secular political discourse except that which openly threatens violence against the body politic. Do we really think the city officials involved in harassing children intent on having a good time and merely expressing who they are would understand such a line of argument?

Too bad they weren't just pervert bums sleeping in the bushes, as then they would have been given the keys to the City.

Or if they were the Perpetual Sisters of Indulgence, gay men dressed up like Roman Catholic nuns who make out in front of church steps, why then it would be fine!

I was once there with some friends. There was a bum who was actually stalking pigeons with the hopes of catching one to cook. He kept on talking to them, trying to get them closer, but they were wise to him. He kept on swearing and swearing when one got away. I'd rather have 6th graders singing than a sqare full of bums.
