Noted Grinch ruining Christmas yet again


#1

Damon Vix didn’t have to go to court to push Christmas out of the city of Santa Monica. He just joined the festivities.

The atheist’s anti-God message alongside a life-sized nativity display in a park overlooking the beach ignited a debate that burned brighter than any Christmas candle.

Santa Monica officials snuffed the city’s holiday tradition this year rather than referee the religious rumble, prompting churches that have set up a 14-scene Christian diorama for decades to sue over freedom of speech violations. Their attorney will ask a federal judge Monday to resurrect the depiction of Jesus’ birth, while the city aims to eject the case.

I fully expect the courts to deny the church just because California is now ruled by the ungodly.

And we have people on this site who claim that atheists, not Christians, are those being persecuted.

You don’t see people complain about ‘burning man’ or any other pagan goddess festival.

You don’t see them protesting radical Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan

Yet they will try and outlaw Christmas

As a followup I was right the court disallowed church scenes.

The city of Santa Monica can bar seasonal displays, including a Nativity scene that has appeared in Palisades Park for nearly 60 years, a federal judge ruled Monday.

In a closely watched case that has attracted national attention, Judge Audrey B. Collins denied a request from the Santa Monica Nativity Scenes Committee to erect multiple large displays depicting the story of the birth of Jesus in the park overlooking the ocean. The coalition of churches has erected the displays every December since the 1950s.

But last year, after requests for display spots exceeded the space allotted, the city held a lottery to allocate spaces. Atheists won 18 of 21 spots. A Jewish group won another. The traditional Nativity story that used to take up 14 displays was crammed into two.

satan is alive and well. make no mistake. WE CHRISTIANS have allowed him to fluorish and run with free rein. Like pandoras box, you open it, you’ll never stuff the contents back in again.

NJC, it never ceases to amaze me the number of people who don’t believe that evil, as an entity in and of itself, exists.

Actually, it was Adam and Eve who opened the box. That’s why we’ve been making so many bad choices throughout history.
