    They should offer Muslim prayer in schools too.

    Atheists should be able to post signs explaining why religion is made up nonsense

    All this over a christmas song that sings about Rudolf. From what I've been hearing that was a solstice holiday so there isn't anything religious about it.

    That's the problem. You can't force/allow schools to celebrate 'some' religious holidays. It's an all or nothing proposition.

    I really don't see any problem with constitutionality of allowing religious items to exist in public spaces since the first amendment was designed to prevent the creation of a state church that would squeeze out other churches. That is why it is called separation of church and state because both organizations could not intermingle with the other. This does not prevent the religious beliefs being expressed in one and political beliefs being expressed in the other but kept the organizations themselves separate thus allowing each one to coexist witch is how the first amendment protects your right to religious beliefs.

    the majority always favors its own displays.... i'm pretty sure those same people would have a nervous breakdown if it were islamic symbols being displayed.

    that's why they aren't allowed to do it on the government dime.
