In God We Trust Visits Memorial for Fallen WWI Heroes Targeted by Atheists
The Freedom Cross in Bladensburg, Maryland, was erected in 1925 to honor local heroes that died in the “war to end all wars,” World War I. Although this cross bears no written religious overtones whatsoever, atheist and humanist groups have filed a lawsuit to have the monument removed from its current location.
Archbishop Council Nedd II recently visited the Peace Cross in Bladensburg to pray for the hearts and souls of the confused and delusional Humanist organization members. “This monument has been standing for almost 90 years and was originally erected by the American Legion and put on property they owned,” states Archbishop Council Nedd II. “And now some 90 years later it’s a problem? It’s just another attention grab by the atheist community,” continued Nedd. “It’s getting pretty pathetic if you ask me.”
Atheist groups continue to push their anti-God agenda in America, and that’s why In God We Trust and our loyal members and supporters remain so diligent in this fight. “The United States was founded by Christians and based on Christian standards,” say Nedd, “And that drives atheists crazy.” If you would like more information on this case that has garnered national attention, please contact In God We Trust directly at (571)-425-4165.
In God We Trust Keeps Fighting for H.R. 343
In God We Trust’s Program Director Sean Ferritor is still lobbying hard for Congress to pass the Military Freedom Bill, H.R. 343.
This month he composed a letter to U.S. Representative Joe Wilson (R-SC), the Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Military Personnel, urging him to schedule hearings on the measure.
“The America people truly support our heroes in uniform,” Ferritor says. “It’s awful that their chaplains are being censored and prevented from praying in the name of Jesus. We must get this bill passed.”
When Ferritor recently delivered a wave of grassroots petitions in favor of the bill to its Congressman Walter Jones, the bill’s sponsor, the Congressman was overjoyed. “However, we are still a very long way from being able to pass this measure through the House,” Ferritor explains. “We have a great deal of momentum on our side, and a lot of passion from our supporters, but the politicians in Washington have not yet gotten the message. Military chaplains must not be prevented from doing their jobs and practicing their faith as they see fit.”
In a recent letter to Bishop Council Nedd, In God We Trust’s National Chairman, Congressman Jones wrote, “The petitions that you are gathering from concerned citizens across the nation are a vital part of the effort to encourage Congress to pass legislation to return religious freedom to the military and allow chaplains to pray according to the dictates of their faith.
