Defending Jesus Statue War Memorial from an Atheist Lawsuit

An atheist group is suing to have a statue of Jesus removed from the mountainside where it has stood for six decades. This statue is a war memorial erected by World War II heroes as a replica of statutes they saw fighting for freedom across Europe – symbols that gave them hope. Yet, this atheist group calls this historic memorial “a ruse and a sham.”

The ACLJ has already defeated this atheist group’s effort to remove this Jesus statue once with the help of more than 70,000 Americans who signed the ACLJ’s letter to keep the memorial in place. Now, the ACLJ is joining with Congressman Denny Rehberg in filing an amicus brief in federal court. We must continue to defend this significant piece of our history and heritage. Please join Members of Congress by adding your name to our brief today.

Committee to Defend Jesus Statue War Memorial

This Jesus statue has stood for nearly 60 years as a memorial to World War II veterans. The Supreme Court has repeatedly held that war memorials and other symbols of our heritage that share a religious meaning do not violate the Constitution. This symbol of sacrifice deserves to be protected and must continue to stand.
