Agreed.  I don't like the politicization of these displays, but I do realize that the ten commandments are part of the foundations of western civilization.  This is just dickish trolling.

19"The first offspring of every womb belongs to me, including all the firstborn males of your livestock, whether from herd or flock. 20Redeem the firstborn donkey with a lamb, but if you do not redeem it, break its neck. Redeem all your firstborn sons.
"No one is to appear before me empty-handed.
21"Six days you shall labor, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even during the plowing season and harvest you must rest.
22"Celebrate the Festival of Weeks with the firstfruits of the wheat harvest, and the Festival of Ingathering at the turn of the year.
23Three times a year all your men are to appear before the Sovereign Lord, the God of Israel. 24I will drive out nations before you and enlarge your territory, and no one will covet your land when you go up three times each year to appear before the Lord your God.
25"Do not offer the blood of a sacrifice to me along with anything containing yeast, and do not let any of the sacrifice from the Passover Festival remain until morning.
26"Bring the best of the firstfruits of your soil to the house of the Lord your God.
"Do not cook a young goat in its mother's milk."
27Then the Lord said to Moses, "Write down these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel." 28Moses was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights without eating bread or drinking water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant-the Ten Commandments.

Badmoodman: letrole: Paganism is not a Religion.

This is probably where you should consult a dictionary.


He's technically correct, Paganism's a category of religions in Christian doctrine, not a single religion with a unified theology.

Basically, there are three ways to not be Christian according to Christianity:

Pagan/Heathen - you follow a non-Christian religion that was around before Christianity was invented (the Aesir, Marduk, etc) in your region
Atheist - you don't follow a god/religion at all
Heretic - you follow a non-Christian religion (or branch doctrine) that was invented  after Christianity was introduced to your region

So... yeah, there you go I guess.  Worshiping Frigga makes you a pagan, worshiping Satan makes you a heretic.  Get it right, yo.

At which point, someone like a secular humanist group just keeps bidding to raise the price.

Well to be fair Roman Catholics believe that Baptists worship the devil..

Really anything you worship that isn't their God is either idolatry or the devil's trickery. So all though most of them don't understand the distinction they are basically correct if you use their book. And since their book is the only one that matters (of course it is, just ask them) you are in fact worshiping the devil. You may think you're not, but you're just being tricked.
