Christianity Disrespects non-Christians

It is inevitable. Our Lord Himself said that "When they kill you, thay will think that they are doing God a service."

It seems that there is a town in Pennsylvania that was "required" to remove a Nativity display that had been in place for 57 years; because a (one, singular, individual) citizen deemed it to be offensive to non-Christians. The question was also raised about the "Separation of Church and State"; because the display was in a government building.

If you click on the title above, you will be directed to Glenn Beck's comments on this point. It does seem that this discussion was between Glen and one of his staff; but you will get the point.

It seems that the Devil and his band are working overtime to discredit any and all displays honoring the Nativity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ simply because these displays "disrespect non-believers.?"

It has always been my opinion that "respect" is not a right; respect is something that is earned. In modern parlance, if you say something negative about someone you "dis" (disrespect) that person. Therefore, respect is seen as a given. How, then, is it "disrespectful" to a person who simple disagrees with the statement you are making?

How can one disrespect a non-Christian merely by displaying a Nativity scene, even on "government" property, simply by it being there: the question of the (so called) separation of Church and State to the contrary notwithstanding?
