But the group that has long organized the Nativity scenes bristled at the atheists’ move, saying it upends a long-standing winter tradition for the city — and impedes their freedom of expression.

emphasis added

So only christians have freedom of expression, and atheists should shut the hell up? Wow! These hypocrites are really onto something!

re: #1 EiMitch

I'm with you on that.

My only observation has to do with the nature of the debate- it's all of the scorched earth variety.

The photo that was published with the original article of one of the nativity scenes looks like peasants in lockup. I hope the others that were prettier, albeit behind really ugly vandal-deterring chain link fence.

I think the lotto system of space is as fair as it can be, but this just adds another wailing issue for the defenders of the War on Christmas. Decorating their own homes, having several dedicated Christian television networks, Christian radio, attending whatever church they choose, several Christmas trees in the White House, and puppeteering the GOP just isn't enough.

re: #3 theheat

What is this "enough" you speak of? I never heard of this word. It sounds like heresy! Christians are entitled to total dominion. Anything less than that is persecution upon christians.

re: #4 EiMitch

Unfortunately, Mitch, as far as they are concerned, that /sarc tag is completely unnecessary. They actually DO believe all of that, plus a bag of chips and the allegedly immortal soul of everyone that has ever lived on this world. Some are even trying to lay claim to our beloved domesticated carnivorous mammals that treat humans as pets. They probably won't even settle for only this world if/when extraterrestrial intelligence(s) make diplomatic contact with us.

I am an avowed atheist but wtf is the point of this other than to stick your finger in someones eye during one of their biggest holidays? Damon Vix is an asshole and a moron. It's akin to holding a pork festival outside a mosque/synagogue during ramadan/yom kippur. It's an asshole move. He's not acting like an atheist, he's acting like a bigot.

re: #6 RogueOne

True, but he still has his right to free expression, same as all the christian bigots like Brian Fischer. If the nativity-scene christians focused their complaining on Damon being a dick, I'd agree with them.

But when they try to spin this as an attack on their "freedom," I gotta call BS. The notion of the majority being persecuted by the minority is a dominionist meme that needs to be stopped.

#rogue one
I'm the same rogue I cannot identify with peevish twats like Vix despite the fact that I've been an atheist since I was fourteen.
Humourless kill joys like that make want to throw up.

re: #6 RogueOne

Agreed. To me, this just reeks of Assholery.

Yeah, I don't like it. I'm not too wild about using city property for a giant Nativity scene, either, but this guy's behavior is distinctly dickish.
