The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), a vehemently anti-religion organization, has made it their mission to eliminate any sign of God from the American landscape.
They have been attacking Christians on a regular basis throughout the country but now they have their sights set on a Holocaust memorial.
The Capitol Statehouse in Ohio plans to erect a Holocaust memorial, which will include the Star of David. The FFRF said that the memorial is against the law under the separation of church and state.
What group of people suffered greater harm during the holocaust? They deserve a memorial WITH the Star of David.
The FFRF addressed a letter to State Senator Richard Finan stating that the FFRF “works to protect the constitutional principle of church and state” and the Holocaust memorial raises alleged “constitutional concerns.” The recently drafted letter claimed the inclusion of the Star of David is “exclusionary” and a dishonor.
A DISHONOR!?! Really?
“As the Star of David was deemed by European Jews to be the symbol that would represent Judaism just as the cross did Christianity, its prominent inclusion in the memorial gives the impression of an endorsement of Judaism,” the letter says.
The Star of David represents the Jewish people not only their religion.
The inscription will read:
“Inspired by the Ohio soldiers who were part of the American liberation and survivors who made Ohio their home. If you save one life, it is as if you have saved the world.”
“In remembrance the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust and millions more including prisoners of war, ethnic and religious minorities, homosexuals, the mentally ill, the disabled, and political dissidents were suffered under Nazi Germany.”
The FFRF are being pegged as an anti-Christian group. This attack on Holocaust survivors could have the intent of boosting their street creds as non-denominational secularists.
When our founders included freedom of religion in the Constitution, they didn’t mean freedom from all religion at all times in all public areas.
If the atheists get their way on this, they will advance the movement. They will one day expect punishments be meted out for those who make any reference to God publicly.
These people are robbing us of our First Amendment rights while pretending they support the First Amendment.
The FFRF pretends all elimination of God is an American principle. That’s disgusting.
If atheists feel left out because of this memorial, they can ask for a memorial dedicated to the atheists who died during the war and were left with no place to go.
Governor Kasich said the memorial will sit 84 yards away from a bronze inscription in front of the statehouse which reads, “With God, all things are possible.”
The courts will make the final decision.
