Why the uproar over Christian religious elements present on monuments in public spaces? I don't get it. As most of you know from a recent thread I started, I'm an unaplogetic athiest. But what I don't get is how upset some Americans get over the word "God" and other Christian references on monuments in our public spaces. I just ignore them - I understand this country is mainly Christian and it's not like public spaces are telling me what to believe. I don't have a problem with it. Of course, Chief Justice Roy Moore in Alabama loves his Ten Commandments monument, and there are arguments from the whole separation of church and state philosophy to remove it from the Alabama Judicial Building. But in the end, is it really hurting anyone? Do we have to give equal time to Muslims, Buddhists, and athiests? I don't know. What do you think? Are we sandblasting God from the public realm?
