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.

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.

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!

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?

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

AMEN Mr Murphy....................these people need to be able to spend 5 mins in a foxhole, surrounded by enemy fire doing the only thing they can as they watch their friends blown away right before their eyes................PRAYING TO THEIR GOD!!!! 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.

Obama will one day be on his knees, too.

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!

most of the freedom of religion members are gay and they are trying to get rid of religions so they can pass their gay marriage laws! they are basically retaliating!

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.

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.
