Which will add fuel to the "atheists deliberately destroyed the monument" conspiracy theory... Can't win with some brands of eejit.

Does this mean that after a month they're going to get a hand made second set of different rules?

Edit: Didn't make sense.

The only problem is that would encourage others to do the same thing and it is the wrong way to go about bringing change. It looks to me like a no-win situation for atheists.

I don't follow. Consider

Huh?

If rebuilding the monument is prevented then I think it may encourage others to vandalize other monuments in other locations in order to get rid of them. I don't think that's the right way to go about it.

Ten Commandments

This is the kind of stuff that makes us all look terrible.

Perhaps. Then again, atheists aren't one homogeneous group. About the only thing we all have in common is our lack of belief in god(s). Beyond that, your mileage may vary.

I'm also suspicious of some dedicated and deranged theist who wants to make us look bad.

We certainly see that...the other side, maybe not so much Undecided

RE: Got the Message
I'm wondering about if it can be re-erected. When the lawsuit was filed an injunction was filed preventing any new monuments being put up. That's why the satan statue isn't there. But since this isn't a new monument is it allowed?
