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.

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..

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.

Dawna Strickland, In God We Trust will be challenged soon enough. Originally, our currency didn't have this motto on it. IGWT was not added until 1956 during the Cold War (1863 to some pennies during the Civil War). E pluribus unum worked well until being later altered. The Founders did not use IGWT.

Dawn, In God We Trust was only added in 1957 by religious lawmakers. Secondly, atheists and Muslims don't get what they want all the time. The memorial represents just Christians on government maintained property. That is illegal.

1st amendment freedom of speech, press and peaceable assembly protects our rights of expression- A solution to the dilemma is to throw Michelin Tyres over the cross to cover it from view & make a statement of what the Viet Nam War was all about- It was a "Police Action" because the purpose was to protect the Wall Street investments in the Michellin Tyre Corporation. How do I know this? In 1987 the Army Map Service surveyed the entire country from DMZ to Mekong Delta for accurate artillery...

How do I know this? In 1987 the Army Map Service surveyed the entire country from DMZ to Mekong Delta for accurate artillery maps JIT for Tet offensive. We measured 1000's of acres of Michellin Tyre Corp. where we were NOT allowed to conduct combat operations. When an aircraft went down, we surveyed tree damage & issued documents authorizing US Treasury to reimburse Michellin Tyre Corp. for damages inflicted on thier property by US armed forces- Bet U didn't know it.

Individuals can express their beliefs, sure. But the government cannot. It must remain neutral. And religious messages and symbols on government property constitute government speech. Public property must remain neutral in regards to religion.

YOU KNOW WHAT!!!! I AM GETTING SICK AND TIRED OF ALL THOSE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT WANT TO WHINE AND MOAN ABOUT STUFF LIKE THERE BEING A CROSS. THIS COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON A FOUNDATION OF FAITH AND MANY HAVE FOUGHT AND GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR IT, BUT JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE OFFENDED BY A CROSS, YOU THINK WE SHOULD CHANGE EVERYTHING FOR YOU. I AM OFFENDED BY YOU WANTING TO CHANGE OUR HISTORY, SO I HAVE AN IDEA,,,,,LETS GET RID OF YOU!! I COULD SAY SO MUCH MORE BUT I WILL STOP HERE BEFORE I REALLY GET UPSET!

I just have one question, what do they think is placed at the head of each grave at Arlington Cemetery, the flag? If the cross is acceptable on the graves, then why is not acceptable on the memorial.

This religious symbol is at a public park and is not a private grave.

Suzanne Strache

At Arlington, or an cemetery, a grave marker represents the individual buried there. That person had the right to declare any religious affiliation and have that be represented on their grave marker. A memorial is not a grave, and does not represent one individual's personal choice of religious symbolism. It is supposed to represent ALL veterans who served there, not just the ones who identify with the cross.

I am starting to believe, after listening to this debate go back and forth, that the only people in this country who should be allowed a vote on any matter are the veterans of this country - the rest of the country seems to be rapidly approaching a level of pettiness and stupidity that makes me wonder if any of you are worth our time and the sacrifices we've made for this country on your behalf. Any monument is a good monument and a pretty cheap and easy way to say thank you, don't you...

Any monument is a good monument and a pretty cheap and easy way to say thank you, don't you think? In the end, the lesson from any monument is very simple, remember those who actually paid for decisions made by those you elected, and count the actual cost in men and money before you make a similar choice in the future. Don't go around kicking over what someone else has built; if it offends you, build one in your own design, send your own version of the message. Life is offensive, but not as offensive as you people wasting your life on matters that are of no real consequence. Build a better monument, right beside any you don't like, or take the word freedom out of the name of your group because you have corrupted the very concept to fit a personal agenda built from too much time on the internet and not enough time in the real world.

Patrick. I'm Jewish. I tolerate the Cross because it is a symbolic meaning of Tolerance. It is intolerantance, that is dividing our country. Cloaked in PC . People who are PC, that is their religion of intolerance , must be their way, or no way. Somewhat Nazi like, since The IRS, fanatics, etc will go after you. Our Countries heritage is based on Judeo/ Christian values. Our Constitution was written to also gaurd those values.

When leaders and People use their religions as power over people, like The Religion Of PC. Christianty is Based on A Jewish Teacher, whom some call the Messiah. His teachings never included what people have done in Jesus name. That is people doing that. Governments, people, doing that. The IRS was an example of how the intolerant use their power to decimate those of a differing view. No Tolerance.

I'm curious, since you bring up long ago history of evil done upon humans in the name of Christ. Why do you PC types not bring up the present time horror done to woman ,children, animals in the name of Islam? How come you keep quiet about those Present time atrocities , yet gather like jackels against long ago events done in the name of Christianty. See, the PC religion is very hypocritical.
