The hypocrisy in the host saying, "I'm a Christian, and this nativity scene is not offensive." is incredibly exasperating. So a display on public land that supports your world view is not offensive to you? Well no shit, Sherlock, but not everyone shares your perspective!

The response to this could (and really should) have been, "I'm an atheist, and a banner that states that there is no god, heaven, or hell is not offensive."

They would both have made the exact same statement, essentially, and it would have painted the host into a corner and forced him to explain how the banner is unacceptable but the nativity is OK, which would be logically impossible. Not that he wouldn't try...
