    The problem is that Christians object to Atheist Displays

    If one has the privilege, then all must get it. Or take the privilege away from everyone.

    Serves them all right.

    No the problem is simply the intolerance of atheist groups.

    Christianity, as the basis for our Western Civilization, will survive the petty and narrow-minded atheist groups of today, not to worry.

    So let me get this straight....the city had been allowing ONLY Christian displays. When forced to actually follow the 1st Ammendment and allow all religious beliefs, they did so, and have now decided that because they don't want a particular viewpoint to be allowed to be expressed, they have cancelled all displays.

    And your objection is that should specifically endorse and allow only Christian beliefs? Really?
