Should all public religious monuments be eliminated under the establishment clause?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • No public monuments representing the religion of our Founding Fathers should be eliminated under the establishment clause.

    Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the established orthodox churches in the colonies. Any religion that is based on a set of premises contrary to those beliefs espoused within the US Constitution should not be place in a public location or funded in whole or in part by Federal, state or local tax revenue. America has been founded by men who revered Almighty God and the Holy Bible of the Reformed Christian faith.

  • No, people should be able to erect status for their religion.

    No, I don't believe they should be eliminated and instead believe that they should only be allowed to become erect in certain areas agreed to by certain people. Everyone believes something different and we can't go around negatively affecting people because they believe something different from our own beliefs. That's not what this country is about.

  • No They Shouldn't

    Many public religious monuments are considered art work and they should not be destroyed under the establishment clause. The establishment clause simply states that the government can't declare a state religion, nor can they favor a religion. This simply protects our religious freedom, it doesn't dictate what monuments should be tore down based on the opinions of a small group of people.

  • Public religious momuments should not be eliminated

    Current public religious monuments should not be eliminated under the establishment clause. More monuments should be allowed to be built as long as the funding to create those monuments comes from the individual religions rather than government funding. It should also be up to the builder to maintain the monuments rather than government employees.

  • They are grandfathered in.

    No, not all public religious monuments should be eliminated under the establishment cause, because people should have the right to live their lives freely. It is freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. If some people want to pray before a football game, so what? It does not hurt anyone.
