Crosses have been a part of this country as grave markers, on churches, on county seals since this country began. Crosses have have a long standing history of being an aspect of this nation's cultural heritage and landscape.
These days the upstart atheists, the new radical atheists that are on the attack to kill Christian spiritual symbols in the United States are on the rise.
The first settlers of Lehigh were Christians. This historical fact doesn't daunt the atheists. The attorney for The Freedom From Religion group argues that the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment is being violated, though it isn't. The clause puts limits on Congress regarding religion.
Below is a breakdown of the two clauses of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,
You can read respecting as regarding or in reference to.
The second part of the First Amendment is the Free Exercise Clause.
or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...
This really has nothing to do with the Lehigh County Seal except protecting the county's right to have the cross on the seal. But atheists and liberals twist the constitution into a pretzel to get it to say what they want it to say.
Congress is restricted from establishing a state religion. But that doesn't restrict Lehigh county from having a cross on their seal. They aren't establishing a religion.
The atheists argument is foolish nonsense. Yes, it is falderal.
So, the first settlers were Christians. When the seal was designed this fact was respected. Now some meddlers, that have no respect for the reason the seal includes the cross want it to come down.
These atheistic troublemakers just want God and especially Jesus out of the public eye. They want His symbol out of view. It must irritate what is left of their conscience.
