Allow Me a Little Rant

There were two things on the news this morning that roused my ire. I'm only going to address one of them this morning.

On a marine base in California seven marines climbed a very rugged, difficult-to-scale hill ten years ago. On the summit they raised a cross and created a memorial for their fallen comrades. Since that time three of those seven have also been killed. Over the years family members or friends of other fallen marines have added to the memorial.

Now a group, supposedly of service members who call themselves atheists and free-thinkers, want the memorial removed. They say it should only be housed within a Christian church. If the top man of the Marine Corps does not agree with them, they threaten to sue. Reaching the top of that hill requires a "bear climb" posture in places; but they are offended.

Is there anyone in this country more intolerant than these "free-thinkers"?
