Indiana Town Sued Over Cross On Christmas Tree – “We’ll Fight it Every Bit of the Way.”
Well here we go again folks. Another person has been hurt by the display of Christianity. Would somebody please help me understand what’s going on here?
How can less than 1% of those who don’t believe in anything control what 99% feel is appropriate? I tell you how. It’s all about money.
The lawyers representing these people know exactly what they’re doing. They keep up on all the lawsuits going on throughout this country and have their finger on the pulse of what can make money and what to shy away from.
When you have people winning hundreds of thousands of dollars over a wedding cake in Oregon, don’t you think for a minute the rest of the litigation world are not paying attention.
The only thing a community can do is stand for what’s right. That’s exactly what Knightstown Indiana did.
The ACLU sued Knightstown on behalf of resident Joseph Tompkins, saying the tree cross violates his First Amendment rights guaranteeing separation of church and state and demanding the cross’ removal and payment of damages to Tompkins for being “forced to come into direct and unwelcome contact with the cross display” daily, the station reported.
“Just because one person’s offended doesn’t mean they have to take away one particular thing,” resident Cynthia Sturgill noted to WXIN.
Neither Tompkins nor town officials commented to the station about the lawsuit, but Sturgill said she’s ready to battle.
“As long as I’m around and family, friends, town, we’ll fight it every bit of the way,” she told WXIN. “We don’t want the cross to come down.”
