I am saddened that this has happened in our lifetime. May God forgive us, one and all, for our part in living through this period in time, for loved ones lost, and for not more to try harder to stop this awful and the families and loved ones left behind. time in our lives. May we all pray for the souls that lost their lives in vain,

There is seriously a foundation called freedom from religion and they go around bothering old monuments? I am sure there is something better to do with your time; get a life!

Shame on you for even thinking of removing this memorial. These men fought for our freedom and have been over looked for far to long.

What about teh non-Christians that fought? Isn't this memorial ignoring them?

Gays weren't allowed in yet, so there goes that argument. Yes Susan one signature will make a difference because it's followed by another one signature. As someone said don't forget this country was built on the backs of veterans.

What about the non-Christian veterans? Shouldn't they be included?

Not every American is Christian. I don't care if you worship your god, but don't force others to do so under the guise of patriotism. A non-Christian can serve our country as well as any.

Remove the Cross from a Veteran's cemetery? Are the elected officials really contemplating this?

It's in a city park, not a cemetery.....but that shouldn't matter. SAVE THE MEMORIAL!

Terry, elected officials are not at liberty to redefine The Establishment Clause. Moreover, these same officials would like to avoid very costly litigation they eventually will end up losing.

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

I am pro Christian and proud of it. If they don't like the cross then don't look. Better yet.............put in a cemetery for atheists ONLY!!!! I bet they won't hear a word from us.

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!

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.
