Glenna, it was vets that filed this petition. You are assuming all vets want this religious display on public property. Being "unappreciated" and removing a constitutional violation from a public park are two unrelated events.

Mr Quinn should spend his time making his comments on one of the Non-Christian, non-Cross believing sites. Obviously they are not appreciated or shared on this "Save the Monument with the Cross" for OUR veterans. I would guarantee there are very MANY more vets believing and thanking GOD to this day and everything that Cross represents as opposed to those he referred to.

What kind of country removes memorials to fallen soldiers. I don't give a crap what a few atheists think. It's time for majority rule. Stop catering to a couple nut jobs trying to destroy the values of this country.

Excuse me! I'm an athiest and I don't agree with your vet memorial being removed, so please stop saying this is about athiests!! It has nothing to do with that and contrary to what some people think, I know of several athiests that are great people that would give you the shirt off their back and die for you so quit with the disrespectful remarks please.

I am a Vietnam Veteran, I fail to see what is so offensive to anyone weather there is a cross or a Star of David or any other form of honoring our war dead. I've lost many friends in this war (Vietnam War). Our country should not have put us in such danger, what about God's laws? "Thou shall not kill." Who is standing up for God's commandments? Our politicians send us off into a foreign country that most of us has never heard of. Putting young men and Women in harms way, forcing us to kill...

Our politicians send us off into a foreign country that most of us has never heard of. Putting young men and Women in harms way, forcing us to kill or be killed. I have found the truth and I should not have even agreed to go to war for some thing that God's law clearly states that we should not do. Freedom of religion, what does this mean when what we are doing is clearly contrary to the teachings of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. America has stuck it's nose into the affairs of other countr too many times. We can not be the police force of the whole World. Jesus' teachings plainly states that we are to love our neighbor as ourselves Semper FI

Joyce Peterson Don't know where you get your information but this is a flat out lie. Obama is Christian, has no problem with a cross but the military has been stupid about using the words Jesus or God at veteran funerals. Obama has NOTHING to do with anti religion, any religion since our country is based on our own choice of religion or no religion. Bet ya heard it on faux!

Every person in the USA that have paid into their taxes have already bought and paid for these public lands. The government doesn't own any of these lands the people do. And there for have no rights to take away what we have built to reminds all of us what we stand for in our liberties and freedoms. These brave souls that have fought for our country so that we could keep it free will remain. Anyone who rejects this can leave or look the other way. This is our history, our lands, our blood.

Nancy you are incorrect about what a majority has the right to on public lands. Moreover, you don't need a Christian cross to properly honor our very secular military. According to The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, this religious symbol is a clear violation. Try to remember that not everyone in our military or who visits this public park is Christian. Soldiers swear an oath to protect the Constitution. The Constitution requires this religious symbol to be moved to private property.

No one is threatened by a cross. It is ILLEGAL. and Christians don't get special rights. The memorial does not represent all veterans, it represent Christian veterans and is maintained by the government. The government cannot preference a specific religion.

Patrick Quinn shut your mouth you are a public nuisance you need to be taken out that cross does not hurt your feelings it represents real man they gave up their lives for your freedom to run your mouth best thing for you to do is to go out behind the shed stick a gun to your mouth and pull the trigger because you're worth nothing more than a piece of shit & goes for the rest of you who want it taken down as well.

First it was our freedom of religion, now it's the freedom of protecting ourselves and others from people are hell-bent on either killing me or my family and others trying to take all my (and others) rights away at all costs.

I would agree that the Germans of WWII but especially the political regime that was running Germany during this time were terrible. But I have not seen, read about, or heard about the atrocities they committed to make themselves look good in the eyes of their leader, then their own people and the eyes of the world happening around us as it was then (Of course our news it filtered by our news channels to keep us misinformed.

History tells us that it was unlike anything prior to that time, but since then it has popped it ugly head up time and time again. And on the whole that head has been cut down. If you think its bad now, continue to let Mr. Obama be president for more years and truly we could say of that mess, today -"You haven't seen anything yet?" and mean it.
