This report will be short but sweet, depending on how you look at it thru your viewfinder in life. Here in Montana we’ve had those pesky little Wisconsinite critters scouting around for anything they can find that offends them, and sure enough they found something to file a lawsuit against…we’ve been fighting them tooth and nail since then. – Well, we won today!
Here’s the story, this is via DC:
HELENA (AP) — A Montana judge says a 6-foot-tall statue of Jesus that was placed on federal land on Big Mountain near Whitefish nearly 60 years ago can remain.
U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen ruled the Flathead National Forest can re-issue a 10-year permit for the statue installed on the ski hill by the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic men’s organization.
The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation sued in February 2012, arguing the statue’s placement on leased public land violated the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits Congress from making any law regarding an establishment of religion.
Christensen ruled Monday that the statue does not convey to a reasonable informed observer that the government, rather than a private party, endorses Christianity over any other faith or the absence of faith.
This victory made my day…now, if we could only get this Freedom From Religion group of twits to leave us alone, that would cinch it! – These people need to get a life and get the hell out of everyone elses!
Anyone think this is group done yet…or do you think they’ll take it to a higher court?
