I am sure no one here is implying that there should be a difference in government policy based on the status of a small group of Americans?
That's exactly what atheists suggest all the time - that they be given special treatment by the government. The extreme atheists look for any excuse they can find to cause problems for anyone who doesn't believe as they do. They've figured out that they may be able to convince someone they have a leigitmate claim to removal of religious symbols and the like from government property based on the constitution, so they're attacking like a pack of wild dogs. If they could somehow justify a way through the constitution or other laws to prevent private religious displays or even stop people of other religions from meeting, I'm sure they would attack that just as voraciously.
Never mind that the issue is not really about constitutionality, which is what they will try to claim, but about them getting their way and ruining not only other people's religious displays whenever they can, but also ruining traditions and historical displays in the name of getting what they want.
While other religions and organizations have many individuals who take the time to get together as a group and help make the world a better place and do good in their communities, the only thing we ever hear about from atheist groups are these kinds of actions designed to forward their agendas and help no one but themselves.
Can anyone deny that the ACLU keeps small towns in line with their Christmas agenda thrugh threat of lawsuits even if they are not valid?
As someone else said, the ACLU is a bully organization in the first place, with its own agenda (which is usually ridiculous in my opinion).
They also tout the agenda of atheists.
Because anything that offends anyone is deemed offensive. Allowing something to offend another is a form of bullying.
What they should do is allow these issues to be voted on by the public in a particular area in a "yes" or "no" vote with majority winning the day, like many other issues.
The ACLU and atheists sure wouldn't want that to happen though, because they would lose in almost every case. They'd rather rig the situation in their favor by throwing it into court, which as I said, shouldn't be allowed. Vote on it, and if you don't get your way, stop your crying.
