Your yard is private property. You have the right to put up a nativity scene.

You'd be lucky to get 3 "wise men" out of all of the RR membership, current and past. Getting a newborn to play the baby jebus wouldn't be easy either.

Ah, of course, abuse.

Rapturecalldan could even have an actual woman giving actual birth right there on the front lawn! How fucking exciting would THAT be?

I wouldn't use my tax money to pay for your religious festivals no matter where you stuck it.
12/29/2008 6:37:17 AM
Private property, you can put up a 50 foot Jesus if you wanted to. Government property should be free from religious icons.

That's just it, you dimwit. It's your private property, not a gov't building.
12/29/2008 7:15:20 AM
You have every right to put up whatever you want in your own yard.
Whether you're allowed to keep sheep and camels in a populated area is, of course, a different matter.
12/29/2008 7:29:08 AM
Please tell me you're putting up a cross for Easter.
12/29/2008 7:50:07 AM
Then I would call the cops and have them ticket you for having farm animals on city property ;)
12/29/2008 7:56:21 AM
If you want sheep make sure you label them men's and women's so we know who should use which for the bathroom.
12/29/2008 7:58:20 AM
Believe me, if you were told to remove it I would protest that action, but nativity scenes don't belong in the state capital or city hall. Oh yeah, if you use real animals I'll just sacrifice them to myself.

Another shining example of a total lack of understanding.
Well done Rapture Ready.

It isn't about the hatred towards Christians, and it isn't about the fact that it breaches secularism.
I don't care about any of that, and neither should any of you. What you should really be concerned about is the major issue here: that the taxpayers' money is being spent on it.
If it came out of the back pocket of the Mayor himself, I wouldn't mind. After all, it is just a nativity play. But the fact is, you can't spend taxpayers' money on this crap.
Maybe they should spend less of it on that, and more on -- let's see . . . oh, infrastructure, hospitals, education, that sort of thing -- than maybe Washington City and the rest of America would be a nicer place to live.
So all of you, please stop crowing about how it breaches secularism -- it doesn't really, since it's jsut a nativity play.
Still, you are right (even if for the wrong reasons), and "rapturecalldan" should shut up and grow a common sense lobe.

I just think that's so cute. Can I be in it?
12/29/2008 10:42:23 AM
For homework, class, look up the difference between public and private property.
12/29/2008 10:51:18 AM
Where you gonna get a virgin from?

You can do that anyway. The difference is, City Hall is owned by everybody. Unless you wouldn't mind jewish, muslim, pagan, and whatever-the-fuck-else putting up quaint displays of their faith. Of course, that would also include me, with my annoying atheist holiday greetings!
12/29/2008 11:18:09 AM
Not understanding the separation of church and state are we?
12/29/2008 11:54:08 AM
Do you pay well?
12/29/2008 12:55:29 PM
Putting such things on private property, at private expense, is just what we've been telling you to do.
12/29/2008 12:58:39 PM
And once again, no town is mentioned..
12/29/2008 1:05:41 PM
Unless you're a government agency you can do whate... hold on... please don't tell me you're a government agency! Sarah, is that you?
12/29/2008 1:42:57 PM
Could it be that they took it down because maybe CHRISTMAS IS OVER perhaps?
