So should all the demonstrations on public property be banned?

Isn't it possible to simply ignore those you don't wish to listen to?

I also heard the street preachers in Richmond Va. some listen to them others walk on by, they use bull horns.

In Duluth are there people touring the light display and complaining about the lights or just the preachers?

Christmas lights go with Christmas, a Christan holiday, if you don't celebrate Christmas then you shouldn't be interested in the Duluth Christmas Light display.

BTW, complaints about the lighting of the new I35 Mississippi bridge in Minneapolis in rainbow gay colors are ignored. Oh gee I wonder why?

What we got is a bunch of do-gooders who love to complain about what others enjoy and spoil it.

IMHO the majority should rule. That is how the USA is ruled, whomever gets the majority of votes is elected and applies his/her best judgement to rule the country, within the rules in the constitution of course.
