Whiny People Sue Over Cross Shaped Memorial In Maryland
Why? Because they’re “offended”, and we wouldn’t want an itty bitty tiny number of people to be offended, so they have to ruin it for everyone
(Fox News) A humanist advocacy group has filed a federal lawsuit to remove a cross-shaped World War I memorial in Prince George’s County, alleging the display violates the First Amendment.
The American Humanist Association says it does not object to the fact that the Bladensburg Cross memorializes soldiers, but rather the placement of the Christian symbol on property owned by a government agency, The Daily Record reported.
“We are certainly recommending coming up with a monument inclusive of all religious groups,” said Monica Miller, a lawyer with the association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center.
Which is a load of mule fritters, because they are demanding that the memorial be removed, rather than changed to include symbols from other religions. The memorial has been there since 1925, and is in honor of the 49 men from Prince George Country who were killed in WWI.
According to the report, the lawsuit names as plaintiffs two local American Humanist Association members and a third individual — each of whom had “unwelcome contact” with the monument.
Steven Lowe, a plaintiff from Washington, said was “shocked” when he first saw the cross and is “upset” whenever he passes it, according to the complaint obtained by the newspaper.
So 3 people, one of who doesn’t even live there, are going all whiny bitch, and because they’re upset, well, the memorial has to go. This is what Robert D. Raiford calls the “United States Of The Offended“, and any time someone is offended they must force their views on everyone else. Of course the Humanists are using the stupid talking point about “separation between church and state“, because these types of people are morons and refuse to read and understand the 1st Amendment and the relevant papers about it from the day. They’re also misreading Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists. And conveniently ignoring that it was a letter, not a law nor Amendment.
Moss, the town administrator, told The Daily Record this is the first time a lawsuit has been filed to remove the Bladensburg Cross. He said the memorial has “historic and patriotic” value.
“There are community members that would be disturbed if the cross were removed,” he said.
Yeah, but the ones who want it up surely don’t matter, because someone else was offended and upset. But, the Humanists wouldn’t be offended if it was on private land. No, really. So, seeing it on government land makes them “upset”, but not on private land? In other words, this is strictly a hardcore leftist movement, and nothing else.
