Churches are going to federal court to reclaim their freedom of speech after the city of Santa Monica, Calif., decided to end a nearly 60-year tradition of having Christian displays of the nativity in a public park due to an uproar caused by atheists' anti-God signs.
Behind the trouble in Santa Monica is a member of the American Atheists, Damon Vix, who applied for and was granted a booth in Palisades Park alongside the nativity display three years ago. He erected a sign quoting Thomas Jefferson: "Religions are all alike -- founded on fables and mythologies." Another sign read, "Happy Solstice."
Last Christmas season, there were 13 individuals that entered the race for the 21 spaces available at the park rather than the usual three. The sudden high demand for spots, especially by atheists recruited by Vix, prompted Santa Monica's City Hall to implement a random lottery system to determine who would have access to the spots. This left the Nativity Committee with only two spaces on which they were able to put up only three of the usual 14 scenes.
The atheists used half their spaces, displaying anti-God signs, most of which were vandalized. This led the city to effectively end the tradition that began in 1953.

They are going to have to realive that most people in this country are religious and believe such things.
And I say that AS an atheist.
After all, it's only fair.
(...nor prohibit the free exercise thereof.)
Everything here in Obamaland is fine. :)
kalifornia can go to hell!
Resistance is our only hope shy of gunfights.
The solution is VERY SIMPLE, VERY EASY.
Simply IMPEACH that Judge.
Do it a coupla times the country over—and this crap is history.
An atheist is a human being that was somehow created by nature and they worship nothing. But i would bet my last dollar that the majority of them think about and beg for God to help them at their time of death. We all know it is all bullshit and these people just want attention. Nothing more nothing less. The typical look at me bullshit crowd that screams, look at me and what i did. Garbage if you ask me.
Rabid atheists deny and ‘try’ to kick God out of their worlds. It is said that hell is simply the place where the God of love, light, beauty and truth ‘chooses’ not to be. All those who choose to deny Him get to go there as He grants them their desire. What utter foolishness to reject the loving and merciful Almighty One of the Universe.

Need some banners of the below to put next to the atheist signs. Kind of like a shirt that has an arrow pointing to the person next to you and says...”I’m with stupid”—>.
Psa 2:1 ¶ Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
Psa 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, [saying],
Psa 2:3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
Psa 2:4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
put the displays up....hire the unemployed new black panthers to guard the display...end of problem!!!
