Disrespectful to tear down Bladensburg Peace Cross

The Bladensburg Peace Cross is a memorial to Prince George's County's World War I dead. Now the American Humanist Association is suing the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission for its removal as a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state.

I thoroughly agree with Kelly Shackelford in reference to the veteran's memorials (“Court ruling puts veterans memorials in jeopardy,” Nov. 15). How can the members of the American Humanist Association have the clout to demand the destruction of a monument that has stood for 90 years?

If this is allowed to happen, then our country has lost its morality. What in the world is wrong with these people that they want to dishonor our dead veterans because they can't stand the sight of a cross? They just want to destroy! By the way, I am Jewish and celebrate my religion, but I also respect Christians and veterans living and dead.
