By that logic you can't allow non-Christian displays and deny Christian displays but those are getting torn down left and right.

SGT (Join to see) - no, that is incorrect. You can't allow displays advocating a religious point of view, such as a pro-atheism display (in the sense used by SCOTUS, that atheism is such a viewpoint even though not technically a religion) without allowing religious displays. But non-Christian incorporates purely secular displays too, and you do not have to allow religious displays when you have secular displays.

"The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to take up a fight over a Ten Commandments monument on the lawn outside city hall in Bloomfield, New Mexico.

Lower courts ordered it removed, ruling that the monument amounted to a government endorsement of religion. The city appealed, arguing that the nation's courts have issued conflicting rulings on when Ten Commandment monuments are allowed on public property."

"A federal appeals court on Wednesday declared unconstitutional a towering cross-shaped monument that has marked a major intersection in Prince George’s County for 90 years.

In a 2-1 ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit said the 40-foot-tall memorial maintained with thousands of dollars in public funds “has the primary effect of endorsing religion and excessively entangles the government in religion.”

There are two examples among many.
