Public Christmass displays... are they constitutional, ethical?:

Thread Hop

There is a difference between government putting out these decorations and other people/organisations doing that. There is no reason whatsoever why individuals cannot put up whatever religious imagery they desire, and if it happens so be mostly Christian - so what?
If we disagree, that much, at least, we have in common

Baff thinks it's somehow a state endorsement of religion. And is offended by trees on state property.
Also.. if Christians are allow to have displays... then we are forced to grant everyone displays! Atheist... Ancient Austronauts belivers... WBC... Wickans... Australians...
As far as I'm aware of, they are allowed - as long as they are not sponsored by the government. Of course, local fanatics would be angry about it, and yes, it is a problem, but entirely different one.

Ok, this thread has had six pages of delightfully civil (And I mean that in all sincerity - yadungood, guys.[awesome]) chewing on the bait that Baff so kindly trolled through. They aren't listening to any responses, they're working with 'personal dictionary' definitions of ""Constitutional" and "Ethical" and I can't foresee this thread going anywhere but down from here. So I'm going to lock it.

And Baff: Use a spellchecker. Your posts would be much more readable if they weren't rife with typos and misspellings. You aren't going to improve your writing by deliberately not using one, because you aren't going to know when you made a mistake. Use a spellchecker, not an auto-correcter.

...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
