religion and politics.

i have an aversion to posting about politics and i`m not a big fan of religion either but this article is typical of a movement to eradicate certain values in our society that have been held together by the church. the athiest in the article has a point regarding the bias toward christianity in the memorials imagery, but i have to ask, which athiest group would come forward to remember the war dead? we live in a clture that holds the word of god as the basis for our laws and community standards (which are eroding.....)and so if we wish to see the traditional values that our society is glued together with last a generation or two longer then we need to be a little more tolerant of traditional symbology.
