"Who is to say that I am not an instrument of karma? Indeed, who is to say that I am not the very hand of God himself, dispatched by the Almighty to smite the Philistines and hypocrites, to lay low the dishonest and corrupt, and to bust the jawbone of some jackass that so desperately deserves it?"
One more reason the ACLU is a bunch of , , , and !!!
And this was started by a man who is not typically offended by a cross (Roman Catholic) that MAY drive down this desert road so far away from his home in Oregon.
Sometimes I think people just look for a reason to ***** and moan to get their name in the papers.
What a friggin moron! Read my sig and see how I really feel.
I say send his butt to afghanistan and have him walk in front of a squad as a minesweeper,minus the electronics

That is absurd and saddening (or is it maddening?). Some guy may be offended as he drives by?? Let him be offended, then. Our vets are more important.
From what I gathered, it looks like the issue isn't that the ACLU or this guy is "offended" by the sight of the cross. They said it was because it's "a religious symbol on government land" and "violates separation of church and state".
The words I have for these guys I can't even say on this forum. This is a memorial for those who gave everything for this nation. It has no religious context. Should we tear down all the headstones at Arlington? Those are all religious symbols on government property.
This stuff makes me so mad. People are so caught up in their faulty politics that they can't even stop to think about what they are doing. They are so self centered that they can't honor those who fought for their freedom to complain. If they don't want to honor our fallen, that's fine with me. They can go to a very hot place and burn. But they should not be able to say that those who do want to, can't.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
We're from the ACLU

This just totally makes me so mad I don't know what to do. Why is it that one person who "might" drive by and see it will be offended. What ever happened to the majority of people who might not be???? When is this all going to stop???
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
That is ridiculus, they should leave it there.
Nobody really gets what separation of Church and State really is. It suppose to be that there is not a government sponsered church, owned, mandated, controled, financed and given political power from our government.

Since when did offending people become such a bad thing that those who might be offended have a right to tell everyone else what to do? The very idea of that is offensive to me, thus they should not be allowed to even state that they are offended.
I am a free American and it is my right to offend people if I want to. Been doing it for years. I'm what you call a "repeat offender" I guess, but I really don't care if people get offended or not, it's their problem. They need to either deal with it or go somewhere that is not so offensive to them.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.
