anti-religion? Great, I love how atheist will come to be stereotyped.
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

I think that if people are willing to pay for a sign/scene/tree/manorah themselves and place it on public land then it should be fine, but I am TOTALLY against the state funding of such things.

Church and state are separate, and a state office footing the bill for a religious symbol or an anti-religious symbol is wrong, IMO.

The state's view on religion should be a tolerant neutrality.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

As an atheist, I'd like to say this is bull. Who really cares what it's called?

But, just to be neutral in this argument, I'd like to point out that the Christmas tree used to be a Pagan tradition.

Christmas in general used to be known as The Birth of the Invincible Sun.

Nobody should have gotten a display area. Unless it was a christmas tree, santa and his elves, or anything that's part of the accepted cultural holiday.

Having a nativity scene is directly religious and shouldn't exist in the capitol building.


I wish separation of church of state would be actually enforced in this country. The laws aren't ****ing rocket science.

Atheists dont have a holiday, so why should they get a spot? The spots not about religion, its about winter holidays, relating to religion...



Well then no one should get holiday breaks from work (if it's public) or school (if it's public).


edit: I say, I completely misunderstood your post.


Either way, just consider it not a response to you

I just think that they're being jerkish because they put it near a nativity scene and a Christmas tree. I mean, really, in all honesty, I think they're really just trying to start something, but in a subtle way. I mean, why else post it where religious and/or Christmas supporters visit in vast amounts?

No lie. There was actually a tick (as in the small, blood sucking insect) on my balls.

It freaked me out bad.

Of course they are. It's gets more publicity than a press release saying.

"why is there a nativity set in a state building?"

The problem is, they're anti-religion. Anti. Against.

As an atheist myself, I roll my eyes at what they've done, outright stating on a placard "there is no God." It's a viewpoint; by shoving it on others, they're just looking for a fight.

/My two cents.

EDIT: Of course, it isn't exactly right for the nativity scene to be there, either...

I'm atheist and even I don't agree with it. I find it rather obnoxious, to be honest. Hell, it's almost as absurd as "holiday tree." It's a mathafookin' Christmas tree.

I celebrate Christmas as a holiday for giving, love, peace on Earth, that secular jazz. Not so much the birth of Christ, since I'm not Christian. None the less, I still observe it as a day to rest and to love.

You can take your views on morals to the religion thread, kind sir. One doesn't have to believe in God to differentiate right from wrong. And generalizations are rather ignorant, dontcha think?

It's a provocative response to the nativity set, which shouldn't be there in the first place.

To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true.

Im sorry what? How many people have been killed because of religious "morals", the different religions have been killing each other for hundreds of years. And of course each religion slamming their fist on their group of choice, IE christians, against the heretics, muslims, gays, etc etc. Anyone hear of the Crusades? I see on the news "Christians protest against gays at their wedding", imposing your will and destroying the life of others. I have not heard of an atheist killing another man for not beleiving what he beleives, hell not even for asking a question. Take your religion and shove it in your ass.
