Atheists asked the Macomb County Road Commission to rescind their order removing a privately maintained Nativity scene set at the crossroads of the city.

The Christmas culture wars for 2009 have begun and ground zero is the Detroit suburb of Warren, which for 63 years has hosted a privately maintained Nativity scene set at the crossroads of the city.

These people are not atheists. A true atheist wouldn’t have such anti-religious zeal.

Already? It’s too early for people to start this. I’m not even done dealing with the neighbors who think Halloween is a pagan celebration — well, they have a point, but I still think of it as Free Candy For Everybody Day. And then there’s Thanksgiving, or Free Smallpox For All Indigenous Peoples Day. Oh wait, isn’t that what Columbus Day is now called?

It’s difficult to comprehend why it is that so many characters can’t comprehend that Christ-mas is... well... all about Christ.

And, by the way, the First Amendment guarantees there will be no Official Religious Sect - as, for example, the Anglicans in England - it does NOT endorse atheism and nor does it ban religious expressions by the United States government.

As if Michigan isn’t enough of a wasteland already? So leftist, tyrant atheists want to kick God out and take His jobs with him too. Such a recipe for blessings and success.....what cretins!

“Atheists asked the Road Commission to resind their order to remove the Nativity display?”
Sounds like the atheists up there in Detroit have gotten into the Christmas Spirit!

We should just replace all Holidays with Barack Obama day. Something the whole country can feel unoffended by.

So this needs to be said again and again and again:

You know, I am far, far from perfect. But some day these idiots are going to stand before God and explain their actions, as we all will. I have no idea of the outcome, but I would not bet on the atheists.

Time to get "muslim" on these people. They only mess with Christians because we do not fight back.

Have you ever seen any of these cowards whine during Ramadan?

Go ahead and be gay, or atheist, or whatever kind of weirdo you want, but leave us regular people alone.

which purported to act on behalf of a complainant in the city of 134,000 residents,

Thomas Moore Law should canvas the town and have the other 132,000 residents join the law suit. Enough of this CRAP!

saying the display violated the Constitution.

There is no such thing as separation of church and state in the Constitution.

Some people are funny about Halloween. Just finished carving false idols (pumpkins)with my niece, and nephew. :) It’s are yearly tradition don’t ha know. I Agree, it’s way to early for this B.S. but they have been waging a war, and demonizing our traditional holidays here in MI, and our nation for years. Sad.

Godly people should leave the state, like I did. That place is hell on earth.
