“To epitomize absurdity”

Complaints about another,

being other than yourself,

as they exercise their freedom

to believe as they would…

is to find the traits of freedom:

using the same money (with in God

we trust), going to court (swearing

on the Bible to tell the truth),

living in a land that cherishes

freedom (of a personal choice)

and then to claim infringement…

this is absurdity… and then

to call this your home.

An atheist group, the F.F.R.F. (Freedom from Religion Foundation), is taking the stand to denigrate: Veterans, religious beliefs, symbols of a religious nature (crosses, depictions of Christ, et al) and our country’s history… in the hopes of removing these same items. Their claims are: they get upset tummies, have experienced emotional upset and have had to refrain from visiting one of their favorite places- a site in Montana. Since they have chosen to take this to Federal Court, over the site in Montana (http://missoulian.com/news/local/atheists-sue-to-remove-jesus-statue-from-big-mountain/article_d8e79fcc-527f-11e1-bcdd-0019bb2963f4.html), they must be taken seriously. The ramifications to them winning, and I’m sure they are hoping for a precedent to be made here, could be staggering- an ex post facto removal of: crosses at Arlington Cemetery, the Vietnam wall (a memorial and shrine to the fallen brothers in arms) and many more. This is not what the Founding Father’s intended, with this line in the First Amendment,” … Congress should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF… ,” and by winning their case should have every (believing, disbelieving or unbelieving) American shaking in their boots. To allow this to pass actually violates the First Amendment… so let’s see what happens now. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution)
