Recently, I came across an alarming article by Congressman Sam Johnson of Texas. Johnson was a fighter pilot in the Air Force who served in the Vietnam War and spent almost seven years as a prisoner of war. He endured torture and nearly four years of solitary confinement. He is a decorated war hero whose honors include two Purple Hearts. Johnson is troubled by the Obama administration’s abuse of power and brazen disregard for traditional American rights.

The Obama administration has filed suit against the Pennsylvania State Police, after it came to light that the State Police have a slightly lower pass rate for women on their physical fitness test. They found that 94% of men passed the test and only 71% of women passed. The feminists obviously demanded this lawsuit. According to their ideology, if women can’t do as well as men on a fitness test for a job, it must be discrimination and the test must be discarded for everyone.

It is a long-standing American custom in all sorts of legislative and other public meetings to open the meeting with a prayer. This bothers the atheists, so they have initiated many lawsuits to try to get supremacist judges to forbid prayers at public meetings. Last May, there was a decision in favor of prayer in a small town in upstate New York named Greece. The atheists had sued the city fathers to stop anyone from voicing a prayer before public meetings, claiming that any prayer is unconstitutional. The atheists were dismayed when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that reciting a prayer, even a Christian prayer, at the start of a public meeting is not a violation of our Constitution.

One very special cross has survived an attack by the atheists. The Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously that the now-famous “Ground Zero Cross” does not violate the First Amendment. When construction workers assigned to clean up the debris after the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center, Frank Silecchia came across a 17-foot high column and a crossbeam that formed an imposing cross. Calling other workers to view his discovery, the cross quickly became a symbol of hope for the workers and for the families and friends of the victims of the terrorist attack. The cross was just two steel beams that were part of the construction of the World Trade building. They carry no religious identification. But the atheists grabbed at a chance to make another attack on religion. They concocted an argument that any display of what had become known as the Ground Zero Cross was a violation of the U.S. Constitution.
