Anybody who has not bothered to read the actual court decision linked in this article is making a decision to deliberately remain ignorant. That is their perogative, of course, but it doesn't really contribute to informed discussions.
I can envision the year 2400 when Islam or Gaia or some other religion has gained predominance in America. This ruling would protect me and uphold the Constitution.
This country is becoming vastly latino, and catholic while baptists aren't noticing. They are having struggles in Poland right now regarding the rights of those who are non catholic christians because of the super majority catholic faith of people over there.
I wish people would take the long sided view. Demographics should teach people that what exists now, won't necessarily exist later. California, Texas, Arizona, Florida, and New Mexico for example will soon be overwhelmingly Catholic, not protestant. Alot of evangelicals would not want to go to court where a statue of the pope is required to be passed before they enter.
You have got to be joking. You seriously think that in some future Islamic-majority America that Muslim government officials who would otherwise want to quash Christianity will be shaking in their boots, their plans thwarted because of the 1st Amendment, much less some dumbass ruling on courthouse decor? I can imagine it now... "Darn it, Achmed -- we would have gotten away with it, too, it weren't for those 11th Circuit infidels and their meddling Constitutional interpretation!"
You will pay the religious tax and keep your face out of public affairs.
That's just to start!
No, it's based on hatred toward religion.
Islam had nothing to do with the founding of this country. Gaia (do you mean earth worship?) isn't a religion, unless anything anyone believes in (tooth fairy, santa claus) is a religion.
