A group of offended atheists are continuing in their attempt to have a 59 year old statue of Jesus removed from a Montana ski resort despite the Knights of Columbus and four individuals requesting a judge to throw out the legal challenge because the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation haven’t named anyone harmed by the statue.
In not such a surprising move , an atheist, who lives 15 miles from Jesus, has stepped forward and submitted a statement claiming when he skis past the statue he finds it religious and offensive. As a result the Knights of Columbus request to throw out the lawsuit has been denied. Let the fight begin.
The statue was erected in 1953 to honor of World War II veterans who saw similar shrines while fighting in the mountains of Europe.
