Eagle Scout

Dear “Mikey”-  Don’t be so petty.  As a Jewish mother of a teen, I am totally appalled by you attacking the kid for doing something good.  Who cares if he references Jesus.  What does it matter?  If he believes in JC so be it.  The memorial doesn’t hurt anyone.  Do you not support Free Speech?  The memorial is a example of Free Speech.  Just because you don’t like doesn’t mean he can’t express it.  Too bad.  Get over yourself.  You are a ugly person on the inside  and need to take a step back and check yourself.

PS: Your “when one proudly dons…” statement doesn’t apply to everyone.  You should be more inclusive to those that do serve and believe in a higher power.  All the soldiers that have died for our Great Nation and it’s flag and the US Constitution who believed in a G_D  to help them get through some atrocities (including my father) should not be excluded just because you don’t like it.

    “The memorial is an example of ‘free speech’”?

    Really? What about the town taxpayers in Monument, to whom that plot of land belonged (before the town secretly and illegally sold it to preserve the memorial) who object to the memorial. That is THEIR right to free speech that’s being trampled by the elected officials determined to advance their religion, and ONLY their religion, no matter whose rights are trampled in the process?

    You have no idea what free speech is, why it exists or how it can and must be protected. You are ignorant, madam, and no one needs you “protecting” their rights as you so inaccurately define them.

    The letter of “name withheld” is just one more example showing that many in the USA have no respect for religious diversity and no knowledge and understanding of our constitution. It is also dishonest in claiming MRFF was disrespectful to the young designer of the memorial. MRFF repeatedly praised the teen who designed it. But the fact is that he was old enough to understand why the design was unconstitutional and disrespectful of non-Christians.

    THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON FOR THE CONDEMNATION OF A YOUNG TEENAGER FOR STANDING UP FOR HIS FATHER AND HIS GRANDFATHER WHO SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES FOR YOUR FREEDOM. BECAUSE OF OUR HISTORY, THE PILGRIMS AND PURITANS MADE A SPIRITUAL PACT WITH GOD ALMIGHTY FOR THE BIRTH OF OUR ONCE GREAT NATION. BECAUSE OUR CONGRESS, SCOTUS, AMD POTUS HAVE SOLD OUT OUR NATION TO FOREIGN NATIONS, THIS YOUNG MAN HAS SHOWN RESPECT FOR OUR VETERANS. WHICH IS BETTER THAN YOU HAVE SHOWN OR OUR SUPPOSEDLY ELECTED LEADERS. YOUR STANCE IS AN EMBARRASSMENT TO THIS ORGANIZATION. YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE.

    HERE IS WHAT THIS ALL ABOUT – WHICH IN ESSENCE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS:

    “This memorial was even erected on private property using private funds in the Monument cemetery but still has come under fire. Here is what has caused all the backlash with the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. At one end of the wall is a headstone which is engraved with the sentences, “Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American soldier.

    Actually William Parker, it’s We The People’s business whenever the Constitution is violated.

    Please explain how the MRFF is acting like a hypocrite William because the only hypocrisy I’m seeing is coming from those who are fine with the back room dealings coming from the town of Monument.

    The memorial was first placed on public property. That is the first wrong step. To avoid a lawsuit which the town would lose the town sold public property to ensure the memorial was on private property.

    So why didn’t the scout and their advisers take this action (placing the memorial on private property) in the first place? You don’t have to answer this question William – I already know the answer.

    Now the town is in deeper hot water as every action they’ve taken has broken the law. Honestly I’m delighted to not be the officials for the town of Monument.

    William who yells at clouds – you have lots of emotion but not a single fact. Sit down and calm yourself.
