Ok, now that the Christian right has supposedly one this battle, how many think it was worth the millions spent to save an ugly cinder block cross rather than if we spent the money to build a true war memorial?
Think how great the memorial would have been without the obvious religious tone it holds and if a proper memorial was designed.

Well, I guess that someone needs to do some more factchecking prior to posting....
also...most war memorials contain significant religious symbolism. Most veterans care about that, and the memorials are to honor the fallen. That's why you'll see crosses and other religious symbology on the markers for the dead.
Quoting RichPhitzwell (Reply 7): The main question I have is, now that this is being transferred is it possible to build a very nice, beautiful structure in its place or is it now locked in from alteration?
No idea . . . I think it's fine the way it is . . . I have no particularly affinity for the cross . . . in whatever form, but I don't see it necessary to change it for the sake of change.
