    Yesterday a federal court in Montana ruled that the “Big Mountain Jesus” statue can stay on the slopes. The statue, erected after World War II as a tribute to soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division who fought in Europe and were comforted by similar statues in the Alps, was maintained on federal land under a special use permit granted the Knights of Columbus.

    The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) challenged the permit’s renewal, claiming that a historically significant statue of Jesus maintained by a private organization on federal land violated the Establishment Clause because it offended three of their members.

    I'm offended at the pink line painted next to the yellow line down South Salina St every year for the Homosexual pride parade.

    Do you think I have a case?
