“It’s a sad, sad commentary”

Not nearly as sad as the atheist is going to be one of these days, if he/she continues in disbelief into the afterlife.

The day is coming when Christians won’t be able to put decorations on their own lawns because they offend passerbys. Or if they have a tree in their house, they will have to keep the drapes closed so atheists can’t see it and be offended. Sound crazy? No. It’s just a matter of time.

Simple enough to have live nativity characters walk around the towne center saying, “God be with you.” Can’t arrest someone from walking around public streets.

Why is it that the that the city caters to ONE CRANK instead of the many who enjoy Christmas decorations.

We had the same problem in in a local town over forty years ago when ONE CRANK shut down the local Christmas and
Easter pageants.

Interesting that when that crank finally died in terror, he called on God for forgiveness of his actions.

They’re never happy. They get their prescious muslim in the white house another four years but they’re just as mean and vicious as ever.

Curious about the unspoken thoughts...

This situation should be viewed in the same light as the Admin’s recent attack on the 1st Amendment regarding “the film”. Not one cucker from the ACLU nor Hollywood stood up to defend the notorious filmmaker. But in this Santa Monica case, too many of these Christian hating operations are all too eager to quell Christian speech.

It’s time these attacks by haters of Christianity come to end — legally of course.

Christmas is celebrated at home, by Christians. Why bother with this non-sensical fighting with athiests? We’re not going to win. F’em.

I bet he likes rocks. This is beyond stupid.. this guy especially, which anyone has that right to act that way. If they have no faith, no religion, how can they even understand and criticize any God and how do they even know what a Christian is. It is all a pretense to discredit morality.

First of all, you can’t “cancel Christmas.” Witness the Whos.

Secondly, put the displays on two hundred private front lawns. See what Mr. Atheist does about that. Don’t worry about City Hall.

This is so stupid. Santa Monica could just let the unhappy atheist have their booth and let all the religious displays up - they have to be viewpoint neutral in how they apportion public space. They just don’t want to deal with residents disagreeing with each other, which is typical bureaucratic cowardice.

People while you are out stocking up on ammo, buy some Jesus statues before they are banned completely. I am going to get one. Hubby and I may just set up a nice Christmas nativity scene this holiday & cause trouble. Where I live in Florida, we have to get permission for anything we do outside the property due to the rules. People who set the rules are from NY NJ/don't even live here maybe 2 months a year. I hate living in this concentration camp at times. That's what I call it when I am upset because.. I can't plant flowers, put up a flag or do fun things. Hubby and I are hoping to move (again) Not back to VA (cause of state incomes taxes) probably here tho into a conservative area of Florida with more normal people :)

"Santa Monica Forced To CANCEL Christmas..."

Reindeer cookies. Christmas is on! Gov't hasn't got anything to do with it.

City workers shouldn’t get the day off or any holiday pay.

if a CHRISTIAN protested a homosexual event... would they shut it down?

Back in the days of yore, the only people in America that had Christmas cancelled were the Puritans.

Now that gives me a thought...
