GOP Reps Introduce Bill to Protect Crosses on War Memorials

GOP Reps Introduce Bill to Protect Crosses on War Memorials

On April 11, Reps. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and Richard Burr (R-NC) introduced the “War Memorial Protection Act” to safeguard crosses on war memorials.

The proposal comes in response to years of lawsuits by atheist groups like the Freedom From Religion Foundation, who are using the court system to try to have crosses removed from war memorials under claims of “separation of church and state” violations.

Burr said, “It is our duty to honor our veterans and their families, and American military memorials around the world stand as testaments to their sacrifice.” 

“Many of our men and women in uniform have strong religious convictions, often finding their faith has played a role in their service,” he explained. “This bill would recognize their beliefs by ensuring that religious symbols, regardless of affiliation, are allowed to be part of military memorials.”
