A US Federal court has ruled that a World War 1 monument honoring the sacrifice of 49 soldiers who died fighting for their country is to be torn down. The madness behind this move is a group known as the American Humanist Association argued in a lawsuit that the Bladensburg memorial is “an inherently religious message and creates the unmistakable appearance of honoring only Christian servicemen.”
And whilst there should absolutely be a separation of church and state, in a free nation, we are all allowed to honor people in any way we see fit. The people who chose to honor these brave soldiers chose to do it with a cross. And remember, it is highly likely that all of these soldiers were at least notionally Christian.
The American Humanist Association was not trying to make a point about honoring all people of all faiths, they were simply trying to mock and denigrate Christianity and patriotic service to the country.
These people are rabid leftists who hate anything that can’t be controlled by a socialist state…and that includes religion, the love of your country, and selflessness.
“Today's decision sets dangerous precedent by completely ignoring history, and it threatens removal and destruction of veterans memorials across America,” said a First Liberty attorney.
According to Fox:
“This memorial has stood in honor of local veterans for almost 100 years and is lawful under the First Amendment,” Jones Day attorney Michael Carvin said. “To remove it would be a tremendous dishonor to the local men who gave their lives during The Great War.”
This is historical revisionism at its worst. It not only dishonors the people who can no longer defend themselves, but the nation for which they stood proudly.
