    So much for separation of church and state. How much to put up this giant memorial of the eternal soul and phallic symbol. I thought we weren’t supposed to honor any religion over another.

    What does this have to do with establishment of a religion over government? Moron. Nothing! You read about trees read the constitution dumbazz!

      Isn’t Christmas supposed to be a out Jesus? Right? Last time I checked Jesus and religion are hand in hand. The constitution says church and state are separate. So why not put up Buddhist decorations and Muslim statues and Shinto shrines. Be fair. And again nice Christmas spirit….merry Christmas

        You would not be bitching about the muslim or other paganist statues I am sure. Shut with the nice Christmas spirit crap. You started the name calling.

      You look at your first post and you called me a piece of crap. I was just making the point that if you want Christmas trees…Muslims can have what they want…Buddhists can have what they want..even devil worshippers. Why just tree?

      Well the majority religion in this nation is Christian. That is why. However there is no law that says other religions cannot do the same thing. By the way last year athiests did put a symbol of athiesm up last year in the plaza.
