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?
DOESN'T SURPRISE ME IN THE LEAST, AS OBAMA HAS NEVER BEEN IN THE ARMED FORCES NOR IN BATTLE AS OUR BRAVE SOLDIERS HAVE, AND TO DINIGRATE THEM IN THIS WAY IS A SIN, AND I BELIEVE ALL TRUE AMERICANS CAN SEE THE EVIL IN THIS LATEST THING AGAINST OUR COUNTRY,
AND OUR MEN IN UNIFORM, SHAME ON THIS ADMINISTRATION FOR THIS TERRIBLE THING, SEEMS THEY DO NOT RESPECT THIS U.S.A. AS ANY TRUE AMERICN SHOULD..
Hitler was the same way called himself to deceive while destroying Germany then took the useful idiots to war and caused 50 million to die
He said he was a Christian to get their vote and because everything was a so called Christian they fell for it
I want to apologize to all veterans, but especially to those who fought in Viet Nam. I came up in the 60's and personally witnessed the pstd(they hadn't even had the term then;) that the men from my neighborhood came back with, including my first love. To insult them, their families, and those who gave their lives is more than out of line; it is sacrilige. This type of protest shows a society in decline. No matter what this country's faults; people all over the world want to come and live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
@Maxine Hardy Hammond, Obama has nothing to do with this issue. Why are you insinuating that he is behind this complaint? Veterans filed this complaint, not Obama.
We should honor all vets no matter what war they were in without them we would not be here.
Yes, all should be honored, remembered, and thanked. Not just some.
Yes we should honor them but not with the symbol of specific religions if it's mainatined by the government. That honors just the Christian ones.
Damn the non religious groups! They want to remove all christian symbols from the face of America. How about the right to free expression? May God kick their butts!
Please help to save this memorial and what it represents. It is not a religious memorial it honors all those that gave so much for their country. There were many who were never recognized for their sacrifices during the war and after both in life and death.
Vets who filed the complaint disagree. A cross is a religious symbol.
A cross doesn't honor anyone who isn't Christian.
