The Cross Removed

Liberty Alerts, American Center for Law and Justice

Every day threats to our liberty and to those who share our faith increase here at home and around the globe. The world continues to lash out against those who stand strong for the faith and values we hold dear.

As the Christmas season rolls around, atheist groups renew their aggressive efforts to remove any symbol of our heritage and Congress attempts to slip through a controversial judicial nominee.

Anti-faith groups are trying to have a 13-foot cross – a memorial erected by Marines to honor heroes who lost their lives in Iraq – removed from Camp Pendleton, and they have already pressured the military to take down a cross at a chapel in Afghanistan. One atheist group is calling the argument that these crosses and other memorials are symbols of sacrifice a “myth” – another makes the incendiary comment that “Jesus wasn’t a veteran.”

We are fighting back, sending powerful message to the Department of Defense: cross displays are not only appropriate, but constitutional as well. Sign the Petition to Defend the Cross today.

These ant-Christian groups will continue their assault on the cross until every vestige of our heritage is removed from the military. And unless we take a stand, making our voices heard in support of these memorials to the heroes who have given their lives for their country, the atheist groups will continue to succeed.

Please take action today, and share this petition with your friends on Facebook by clicking the “Like” buttons in this email and forward this message to anyone you know who would want to stand up for the cross – a powerful symbol of hope and comfort.

There is another critical matter that needs your immediate action. Knowing that most Americans are paying more attention to the Christmas holiday than what is going on in Washington, the Senate has scheduled a vote on a very controversial nominee for what is often considered the second highest court in the land, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. This court plays a critical role in our national security, in the review of federal regulations, and is often the court that Supreme Court justices are nominated from.

For this important court, President Obama has nominated Caitlin Halligan, former solicitor general of the State of New York. Ms. Halligan has a long record of advocating judicial activism, opposing the Second Amendment, and calling for additional rights for terrorist detainees.

The Senate vote is scheduled for tomorrow, December 6th, there is little time to act. I urge you to contact your Senators today and ask them to oppose Ms. Caitlin’s nomination.

As always, thank you for your defense of life and liberty.
