Hey there :) Actually, it's been a while since I posted here so hello to everyone.

My question is - Do we really want / need a ticket in line to the freak-show? This atheist 'display' - is it really what we're striving for? (An 'equal' place in a line of equally ridiculous displays...)

I don't think it was as much about having an atheist display as it was about highlighting the hypocrisy of those involved in the original displays and their claim to be inclusive. Their refusal to admit of the atheist display is a clear sign to everyone (including themselves) of the double standards involved.
