    Don’t Let The ACLU Remove The Crosses From Federal Cemeteries
    Contact Your U.S. Senators and President Bush Today

    The ACLU is currently trying to remove a cross from Mount Soledad National War Memorial in San Diego. In fact, an activist judge has already ordered the city to remove the cross from the memorial or face a fine of $5,000 per day. That case, now 17 years old, is still being fought in court.

    If the ACLU wins, it will mean that every cross in every federal or state cemetery will eventually be removed. Don’t let it happen! Under Section Three, Article Two of the U.S. Constitution Congress can pass a law prohibiting federal judges from having any jurisdiction over federal cemeteries.

    If the ACLU is allowed to pursue this anti-Christian bigotry unchecked, the 9000 white crosses at Normandy Beach could soon disappear. The words on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington will be open for removal: “Here rests in honored glory an American soldier known but to God.”

    Go here to send an email to the President and your Senators. Just enter your zip code and an email will pop up addressed to your respective Senators and President Bush. All you have to do it put in a title and sign it.

    The crosses at the cemetery may not be in danger right now, but I've never seen the ACLU stop with one victory.

    Give them an inch...

    Why should we allow the ACLU to even remove a cross from Mount Soledad National War Memorial in San Diego???

    I don't think it's too soon to pass a law protecting them. When it hits our back yard, it may be too late...

    Technically speaking, the ACLU is not removing anything - it is petitioning the courts to enforce existing laws and regulations.

    Thanks for the link LE. Imagine that! An atheist is behind the whole thing...

    Not at all. What it is doing is petitioning the courts to give them an opportunity to twist existing laws to support their communist and atheistic agenda.

    We will losea lot more battles. A handfull of atheists and Christ bashers know the battle is won by attrition. They simply start a fight in several areas and know the religious right will keep after them only so long. They win by applying the pressure non stop, knowing that we are preoccupied and will concentrate for about 15 minutes on an issue.

    Civil liberties are communistic and atheistic? I thought the communists were known for their lack of individual rights and liberties.

    Civil liberties are certainly not communistic; they are provided for in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The ACLU, however, was founded by a communist, is distinctly anti-American in most of it's initiatives, and has never had the overall good of the Republic as its aim. Bruce

    On the contrary, the ACLU is distinctly American and fights for the individual's right to civil liberties.

    It is my perspective that the ACLU is particular as to which individual's rights they support. Perhaps my view would change if they would champion a student's right to include the subject of their own choosing in their graduation speech.

    True, they have taken on supporting the KKK's right to march. But I would prefer their support for an after-school Bible study group. Our their support for a community's monument to it's war veterans.

    The ACLU is very selective in how they view civil rights; a case in point is the Second Amendment, the ACLU is avowedly anti-gun, yet the Second Amendment is foundational and included in the Bill of Rights as an individual right. You cannot have it both ways - the ACLU is anti-American to the core. Bruce

    I find it rather repulsive that conservatives so often characterize those with whom they disagree as being "anti-American". I think they need to learn that agreeing with them is not the "pro-American" position.

    Technically speaking . . . IMHO.

    They are able to spread their atheistic agenda because some Christians look the other way while some Christians help the enemy.

    IMHO

    Personally speaking,

    When the ACLU had the opportunity to address religious discrimination against me (IMHO & I am not going to drag that out on the internet), they were VERY sympathetic in their explanation that they would not help, because this was not their 'kind of case'. They were quick to send me to a lawyer that would charge me $10,000 to represent me.

    I was left feeling rather strange. On the one hand, they were sympathetic. On the other hand, they were quick to move away from a case that they characterized as discrimination because I was a Christian and not a minority Religion - I am not trying to bash that is just the way I was left feeling. I really was left with conflicting thoughts and feelings.

    Would it be prying to ask what your case was about?

    Without getting into details, would I be correct in assuming that had your same situation occurred to a minority, it would have become the ACLU's type of case?
