Whiteville Mayor James Bellar needs and deserves all of our support in standing up against yet another fraudulent claim of a First Amendment violation. He has authorized the Alliance Defense Fund to look into the merits of the case, citing sincere doubt as to whether the complainant was a taxpaying resident of Whiteville.
The foundation sent another letter to town officials on Wednesday cautioning them against accepting legal representation from the Alliance Defense Fund: "The best resolution of the dispute over the water tower cross is by removing it without the need for costly and protracted litigation. The town must consider the substantial costs involved in litigating an issue that is settled by the courts. When we won a case again Rhea County Schools in Tennessee for unlawful religious instruction in its schools, the District Court awarded over $120,000 for plaintiffs' attorney fees and costs. This amount does not include substantial defense costs. This amount was separate from the substantial fees paid to Rhea County's defense lawyers."
All these cases are based on the false premise of separation of church and state, WHICH EXISTS NOWHERE IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION OR ANY OF THE 27 AMENDMENTS TO IT! The clause in question reads, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ..."
This is the primary tactic of the secular Progressives who are destroying our country one cross, one liberty, one small town at a time. It is time for us to stand up to this rabid minority with COMMON SENSE and and UNITY OF PURPOSE. Any judge that doesn't throw out a case like this needs to be run out of town!
