ACLU bring superfluous lawsuit

This was a nation founded on Christian principles. According to research conducted by my senior editor, Rosemary, the very first document, the Mayflower Compact, that was signed and witnessed in the United States. So, if anyone tries to tell you this is NOT a Christian nation, refer them to the Mayflower Compact:
“In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord, King James, by the Grace of God, of England, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, e&. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia; do by these presents, solemnly and mutually in the Presence of God and one of another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid; And by Virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions and Offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the General good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience. In Witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the eleventh of November, in the Reign of our Sovereign Lord, King James of England, France and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth. Anni Domini, 1620.”
There followed the signatures of 41 of the 102 passengers, 37 of whom were Separatists fleeing religious persecution in Europe. This compact established the first basis in the new world for written laws. Half of the colony failed to survive the first winter, but the remainder lived on and prospered.
Wish the ACLU would get with the program instead of challenging America with the superfluous “Freedom from Religion” lawsuits. According the KFMB San Diego, the ACLU has just filed a lawsuit against the federal government in regards to Mt Soledad Cross located in San Diego County, California on behalf of a Jewish Veterans Organization.
The ACLU lost the chance to sue the City of San Diego when President Bush signed the bill transferring Mt Soledad to the Federal Government. So, now the ACLU is mounting a campaign against the Feds to forcibly remove the cross: ACLU Files New Lawsuit over Soledad Cross
“The controversy over the Mount Soledad cross continues to grow Friday, with the American Civil Liberties Union now suing the federal government over some newly signed legislation.”
You may find additional information about the Mt Soledad controversy as it becomes available at KFMB Channel 8, San Diego.
