Irreverent ‘Satanist’ Decorations Aim to Counter Nativity Displays
What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander Evil_monster

"Under Supreme Court rulings, if a government opens up a public space for private groups to mount holiday displays, it “can’t choose which messages it likes and which ones it doesn’t,” said Gregory Lipper, senior litigation counsel at Americans United for Separation of Church and State. “We would prefer that there not be holiday displays. But if there are, then everyone needs to be welcomed,” he said.”

"On Tuesday, a woman knocked over and damaged the Satanic Temple’s diorama in the Florida Capitol and later was arrested, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. A member of the Satanic Temple later reassembled it, but the angel no longer could be suspended over the flames so it now was sitting in them, Mr. Mesner said.”

I can't read it, but I'm glad to hear the lady got arrested.

At their core, christians are a violent people and this comes from worshipping a violent god.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

I disagree; I don't think most Christians would be violent if it wasn't for their religion telling them they need to be.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

When you have a group of people who get together every week to discuss the same stories in the same book, those violent reactions they read about are being drilled into their skull, feeding their own inherent sadistic tendencies.

Its unhealthy and all that repressed anger and guilt stored inside them explodes when they see something that doesn't conform to their own internal worldview.

I'm willing to bet you can take every case of violent assault and tie it to a passage in the bible that condones it.

Yes! That cracked me up too! Laugh out load The woman was offended by the angel suspended over the flames, so now after her tantrum, it's... improved. Laugh out load

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.
