Is that the start of a parable about Christians turning to drugs and getting high?

I've jogged up that Mount and I just think that that big Ol' Cross up there looks awesome.
Why it bothers Atheists..... I don't know....
Making up problems instead of facing the ones that actually exist I see! Do you really think the cross bothers Atheists? If so you are wrong. It is the fact that it is on government land giving the illusion that Government is supporting and endorsing religion. It is the perception that only Christ-insanity is a real religion and all non-believers are second class citizens who should pay taxes to support the symbols of your religion on what is supposed to be neutral territory.

Making up problems while avoiding the ones that exist might make you comfortable but it does nothing to make a society where people can get along because the government does not play favorites.

My taxes pay to maintain government property and I resent you forcing me to pay to maintain your religious symbols. If you want them pay for them, and the land they are on, yourself.

The only place Christianity is on the rise is in third-world countries like Uganda. Complete with with terrorism and murder in Jesus' name.
I bet you would like the USA to be just like that.
You should move to Uganda! It is a Christian paradise!
Nazi Germany was a Christian paradise too!

"Display of a large cross such as the Mt. Rubidoux cross on public property sends a message to residents of the city that the city favors, endorses, and prefers the Christian religion over other religions, and this can make residents who are not Christians feel like they are outsiders or second class citizens in the city."
One possible solution the city may consider would be selling the land that the cross sits on, meaning people who hike up Mount Rubidoux would be on public land, but once they reached the cross, they'd be on private property.
Why is it RR that Christianity only has value when its symbols sit on Government land?
That is the FFRF's opinion, yes.

The cross stands.

We win again.

The United States is rapidly becoming a third world country because of the Christian cult's blatant disregard of the First Amendment.
That and the fact that our Government is filled with Christians dismantling our Republic and turning it into a Democracy. Of course Democracy will backfire on them when 51% of the population is no longer charmed by pew warming bigots. How quickly they will realize their mistake when the Democracy they love turns around and bites them on the ass.

So have I. Well, not jogging but walking.
RR doesn't run.
I know a few atheists here that actually like that cross, because it's been there so long it's like a monument for Riverside.
It's the militant and extremist atheists that don't like it.
If it was on private land RR you could paint it pink for all I care. Why do I have to pay for your religious symbols? Why would you ask non-believers to pay for your religion?

I pay higher taxes because your church pays none.

The belief in god is "willing stupidity" and there's no reward for "willing stupidity" but it doesn't stop cowardly little shits like you from being willingly stupid.

I was just talking to a guy while standing in line at the Bank today who is a member of the Inland Empire Atheists Association and they meet weekly at the Top of that same Mount.... Who would have thunk it? And they don't have a problem with the cross.
He graciously invited me to attend one of their meetings and I said I might bring a friend ....How about it RR... well both go for the food...!!! LOL!!!
That is why I used to go to church, man-o-man those baptists can cook.

You too, Hukt.
On a worldwide scale, Christianity's numbers are still rising - as they've been for two thousand years.
Go ahead and believe that if it keeps you calm.
