Group Wants Small Town Veteran Memorial Taken Down
In the small town of Knoxville, Iowa a memorial of a silhouette of a soldier holding a gun and kneeling at the foot of a cross is featured as a tribute to the fallen.
Now a group called Americans United wants it taken down due to the crosses which symbolize tombstones. They claim it violates the Constitution and makes it appear that only Christians are being honored.
Americans United said this in their letter to the town:
“Please remove the Latin cross from government property…Another court prohibited a county government from displaying a war memorial featuring crosses and the Star of David, because this design ‘gave the impression that only Christians and Jews are being honored'”
One resident, David Goff, told Fox News:
“This political correctness stuff is getting way out of hand, when we are bending to the will of one person in the town — you know something is wrong there.”
Is this memorial offensive or should the town ignore the demands and the PC police? Let us know in the comments below!
