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!
Then stop forcing your religion on others.
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?
Either love this country with all of it's religious memorials and our freedoms to express our love and appreciation for those who have fought for these freedoms or take the first plane to Afghanistan and join the other God haters!
So forget about the Constitution and kick out all the non-Christians?
Chip God Away One Day At A Time
This is another disgrace. Call your members of Congress. Get involved...
Military Academy may drop the phrase SO HELP ME GOD
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.
I think it matters more that it honors the vets, not a particular religion. Freedom From Religion appear to be a kind of hate group from their actions. What do the VETS think about this memorial? Do THEY feels honored by it? I think that's ALL that matters.
Then remove the cross and replace it with one that doesn't favor Christianity. What's the problem with that? Do you think that non-Christian vets feel that this memorializes them?
Enough is enough! I am so tired of these non-religious Zealots discriminating against me because I believe in God.
Well, I don't believe in God, but I wouldn't descriminate against you because you do, so let that much be known. I believe everybody has the right to their own beleif's and it should be respected across the board. I don't descriminate against anybody, let alone because of beleifs.
I love this, thank you!
This is crazy! Is the city of Coos Bay really agreeing to maybe do this? This is totally un American!
No, violating the Constitution is actually more un-American.
You know nothing of the constitution or what it is to be American. Patrick find a meaningful life.
Nancy, shall we review case precedence on this issue? Your ad hominem rebuttals would not be necessary if you had The Constitution on your side. Let's start with The Establishment Clause.
These Atheists don't want Religion on anything, but WE DO, so if they don't like our gReligious FREEDOM, either leave us alone or LEAVE AMERICA to a Communist country and you won't have to see our FREEDOM OF RELIGION IN THIS UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN! We have just as much right as you have on this issue! If you don't want to seeCROSS THEN TURN AROUND OR MOVE AWAY!!! Leave us alone!!! Take your ANTI-RELIGION AND LEAVE THE U. S. A.
No thank you, we will continue to stay and see that the Constitution is honored. These religious displays will be removed from public property.
I Believe In Separation Of Church And State. I Also Believe In Democracy Which Allows The People To Choose. I Believe Most People Would Like The MemorialWith Or Without The Cross.Why Be So extreme As To HBe
Have A Memorial removed
This country forgets they gave all,than they want to take that away,That's deeply sad
@Jim, no one is forgetting anything. You do not need a Christian cross to honor our secular military. What is sad is the people who illegally put their religious symbol on public property and shamelessly ignored the brave soldiers who are not Christians.
Patrick, these men knew taking an oath under God. Go find something meaningful and less destructive in your life. Your wasting away with your lies and meaningless ways. Go spend time with your family.
Nancy, that is pure hyperbole. The Oath is taken to defend the Constitution. That includes The Establishment Clause of The First Amendment.
