Atheist filed suit to Remove Memorial Crosses

Atheist group wants memorial crosses removed, can you believe it? It is no longer a war on just Christmas it is way bigger. Holiday Assault? Christianity? Below is a story reported in the Salt Lake City Tribune.

A lawsuit filed by the American Atheists in U.S. District Court on Thursday
seeks to remove steel crosses that dot roadways throughout Utah and memorialize
Utah Highway Patrol troopers who have died in the line of duty. The suit has
drawn harsh reaction from family members of the fallen troopers and promises to
be the source of an emotional battle. The crosses, which stand about 12 feet
high and bear the trooper's name and the UHP insignia, were erected starting in
1998 and serve as a memorial for 14 troopers who have died since 1931. About
nine of the crosses are on public land and all of them are placed near the spot
where the troopers lost their lives. Full Story

This battle continues all over our country and getting more and more vicious everyday. I feel we have to stand up for what we believe in and stop these attacks on Christmas and our right to be Christians in our own country. The 5% of our population including the Atheist groups and the ACLU has to be stopped.

I am not sure a governmental body should be erecting crosses, but I remember when I was a young girl, my parents and I made a car trip out west. We saw that everywhere there was a loss of life in a car accident, a small white cross was erected. At some places there were more than could have resulted from one accident. I wish this was done everywhere. It might help prevent careless accidents, with such a constant reminder.
