I'll be curious to what the atheists come up with to honor those who fought and died for human rights and freedoms, freedom of religion being among them. A big zero perhaps?
I'm not a religious person, so it matters not to me one way or another.
That said, it never ceases to amaze me the level of offense some people take against the stupidest minor things. This cross is neither a promotion of one particular religion or any religion at all nor does it in any way impinge on any person's personal expression of religion as associated with death.
There was a time when people lived their own lives, minded their own damn business and let others live as they pleased. Some people need to get a life and stop finding drama and insult behind every door.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
I persoanlly have no problems wth a Xtian cross, even though I do not believe in any Gods/gods. As a "revelation" type god, anyways.
It's all rather a silly issue to litigate - I don't see any harm in leaving an existing landmark; but don't institutionalize anymore please.
