    And this isn't about not wanting anyone to be religious at all, but rather not having the government appear to endorse any specific religion.
    It's idiotic. Some of these crosses are historical. What does it hurt atheists to leave these historical landmarks alone? Bunch of intolerant assholes. It's okay, their time will come. This **** won't be tolerated forever.

    Nobody in their right mind will go after graves in a public cemetery. Do you have any idea how many people are buried in public cemeteries in the US? Have fun dodging bats with your balls

    Greetings, WorldWatcher.

    I hope you're right. The deceased didn't put them there, friends or family did. How sad for a parent to visit their child's last resting place and find the symbols of their remembrance gone. When did a cross or any other religious symbol from any faith become such a threat that it had to be removed? What is so scary about them?

    Nothing wrong with them at all, and no one has said differently, at least no one with any true power or backing in this area. The fact that the military is being made to allow other symbols shows that they are going basically the opposite way on this, allowing many more religious symbols to represent all individual religious preferences rather than just a few.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    Respect goes both ways, you know.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    being in favor of gay weddings says nothing about the right of churches to not perform them. It is the government who should acknowledge the fact that the are legal, not force churches to wed gays or lesbians against their wishes.

    The govt isn't forcing churches to wed gays and lesbians. Any more than it is forcing synagogues to wed Christians or Catholic churches to wed Muslims.

    Good Morning, I hope you are right. But in today's days and age I highly doubt it.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
