One of the most pernicious liberal tricks is relativism, by which moonbats pretend that it’s only fair to pretend all things are equal, even when they are far from equal. The next step is to phase out the allegedly equal things that libs don’t like. An example from Santa Monica:
For the past 57 years, [a coalition of 13] churches erected 14 displays along the length of Ocean Avenue depicting scenes from the nativity story about the birth of Jesus Christ using life-size figures.
In all that time, the churches have had little to no competition for the total 21 spaces available for displays, because only three regular applicants took up approximately 16 spaces.
For the first time in the history of the winter holiday displays 13 individuals entered the race for the 21 spaces rather than the usual three, forcing City Hall to use a random lottery system to allot the spots.
That process left the churches with only two spaces on which they can put up only three of the usual 14 scenes.
A Jewish group received one space for a menorah and two individuals snagged a total of 18 spaces for “solstice greetings.” One person can request a maximum of nine spaces.
To date, only two of the solstice spots have been filled, and both with set-ups declaring an aversion to organized religion.
It smacks of collusion, said Hunter Jameson, a spokesperson for the churches.
“Our belief is that these new applicants have been working together to displace and push out the nativity scenes from the park, rather than erecting a full display of their own,” Jameson said.
This latest underhanded tactic to suppress our constitutional right of religious liberty was enabled by the absurd premise that Christmas and atheist displays are of equal value in December. Ninety-six percent of Americans celebrate Christmas. Five percent celebrate Hanukkah. What percentage celebrate Let’s Be Nihilist Jackasses Day?
