It hurts no one unless you are looking for something to pick at. I will never agree. Calling a christmas tree a christmas tree and having a nativity scene of a town building laws is completely harmless.....unless you WANT it to be offensive and need something to attack. Like I said, I'm not christian, but like the friendlyness, decoration, the story, the holiday spirit, etc etc etc. I think those atheists are fascists. "I DON'T LIKE IT" means "YOU CANT HAVE IT."
And what if citizen(s) which to put up a display in the spring (just about the time of Passover and Easter) honoring the new season and the god Priapus? Should they be able to use the same public display space? Even if some people find it offensive?

A 6 ft tall display of the Priapus in the public square, and let us just see how long it takes those in the "pro-christmas" camp to be offended.
