Acting Architect of the Capitol Stephen T. Ayers!
e the Lawyers of the Atheist Communist Litigation Unit, in order to form a more godless union, establish political correctness, insure no public mention of 'God' or 'Jesus' anywhere (but 'Allahu Akbar!' and 'Mother Gaia' are okay), provide for lawsuits against small towns displaying anything even remotely Christain-looking, promote the intolerance of all similar religious expressions (First Amendment be damned!), and secure permanent injunctions from liberal judges to our courtroom opponents prohibiting any and all such displays and expressions, do select and certify this week's recipient of the ACLU's Godless Public Award.
- Lawmaker Protests Censorship
By JIM ABRAMS
WASHINGTON (AP) — An Ohio lawmaker on Thursday demanded that Capitol officials change a policy that resulted in the word "God" being removed from a certificate accompanying a flag being sent to one of his constituents.
Republican Rep. Michael Turner urged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to review and reverse a rule followed by the Architect of the Capitol that bans the use of religious expressions on flag certificates.
That policy, Turner said in a letter to Pelosi signed by other Republicans, "puts at risk our religious freedoms and heritage."
Turner said the constituent, Paul Larochelle, and his son Andrew had requested a flag flown over the Capitol on Sept. 11 which Andrew, 17, was to give to his grandfather after being inducted into the Eagle Scouts.
They asked that the certificate of authenticity accompanying the flag read: "this flag was flown in honor of Marcel Larochelle, my grandfather, for his dedication and love of God, country and family." The Architect's office, citing its own rules, returned the certificate with the word "God" excised.
"The word 'God' is carved into the walls of both chambers of Congress," Turner said in a statement. "The Architect is the custodian of the Capitol and currently maintains several religious symbols in the building. If permitted, removing 'God' from the Capitol flag ceremonies will be the precedent for removing 'God' from the Capitol, and this cannot be permitted."
"This week's recipient of the ACLU's Godless Republic Lifetime Achievement Certificate is Dhimm al'Qrat James Al-MqDermott, 'U.S.' Representative of the satisfyingly mega-liberal State of Washington's 7th Congressional District, thus continuing that unbroken lock members of his party have had on receiving this certificate since its inception over three decades ago.
"Congratulations to all of this week's winners and the many [dis]honorable mentions [of the Dhimm al'Qratic Party]."
