Atheists Looking For A Hug In Montana

Here we go again.

A group attention-craving atheists need a big hug from someonw, or better yet, a swift kick to the head for trying to get the government to pulls down a 6-foot-tall statue of  Jesus Crist from government land in Montana.

 Montana's attorney general said Wednesday that he supports keeping a 6-foot-tall statue of Jesus next to a Whitefish ski hill as a group of atheists and agnostics seek to remove it from U.S. Forest Service land. 

Attorney General Tim Fox and the American Legion filed a friend-of-the-court brief with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals as it considers the legal challenge by the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation. 

Fox is asking the court to uphold a federal judge's August ruling that allows the Forest Service to reissue a 10-year permit for the statue that has stood at Whitefish Mountain Resort for decades.

"I think the overwhelming majority of Montanans and Americans would strongly oppose removing the memorial and all it represents," Fox said in a statement. 

The Knights of Columbus, a Catholic men's organization, had the statue erected on the site in the 1950s.-Fox

Not let's not go out and actually kick one of these guys in the head, considering that the blow could cause harm to their already ailing brains.
