“Each is secular in nature and without religious reference, which offends no one and is respected by all.”

This guy is evil and probably stupid as well. I find the idea of a Holocaust Memorial without the Star of David shockingly offensive. Do these whiners from the FFRF even know what the Holocaust was about?

Despite the FFRF’s intense opposition, the design was approved.
Good - now go F yourselves FFRF.

So what does an atheist woman scream out during sex?

They, along with millions of other low-info Americans, have no idea what the establishment clause means. I would wager that a majority of Americans believe the words “separation of church and state” actually appear in the Constitution.

This what happens when the government schools quit teaching civics and replace it with ethnic studies.

It would have been just as catastrophic if Hitler had exterminated 6 million atheists.

But there is no denying that they were Jews.

...and just as there is no constitutional separation of church and state, there is also no constitutional freedom from religion.

The symbol is good enough for the headstones of thousands of Jewish men who gave their lives for our country and our freedom. So it is definitely appropriate for a Holocaust Memorial.

In U.S., 77% Identify as Christian - Gallup.Com

20% of Americans Are Now Atheist, Agnostic or Unaffiliated ...

... According to research, there are about 6.4 million Jews in the U.S.,

Now tell me why we let these peons get away with messing with our God stuff..Just something to prove they can..I just wish these roaches would go back into their holes and leave us alone..

They’re fanatics. Utterly beyond logic or reason.

We have turned the other cheek in response to such fanatics for far too long. While that is essentially perfect guidance that I do my best to follow when dealing with normal people, it's the wrong answer when dealing those who exploit our virtues.

Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one . . . And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough. [Luke 22:36,38]

I believe this passage means that there is a time for the sword - but only in moderation. I also believe this is the time when we should no longer turn the other cheek, not when western civilization and freedom are on the line. The Ohio State House should either fight to the death for a real memorial, or replace their planned memorial with a discrete plaque explaining that the litigious bullies from FFRF, siding with Holocaust deniers, have prevented them from building a true Holocaust Memorial, and that any memorial without the Star of David would be meaningless.

I’m not ready to start shooting atheists. Too much paperwork, for one thing.

Violence is not the answer to this problem - we, as a society, simply have to start saying “No.”

BTW, the FFRF lost this one. I almost hope they sue.

Not shooting them, but we have to show some backbone instead of simply bowing to their insane demands to keep the peace. They don’t deserve peace, not when they provoke fights over all public displays of religion. Ohio is 1.3% Jewish - a Star of David on a monument does not in any way constitute a state establishment of an official religion and cannot rationally be misinterpreted as such.

These subhumans are insufferable maggots, aren’t they? Their logic circuits have burned-out in what little grey matter they have. I find them offensive to humanity in their continuing attempts to bother other people with their spew.

The words OF and FROM are not interchangeable. There is no freedom FROM religion,only freedom OF religion.

Freedom from religion is a desire of a loud minority not in any way a constitutional principle.

This is one of those moments when I’d like to see about 10,000 Christians start pushing in a rocking motion on their office building resulting in it be flattened within about ten minutes.

Don’t like God all you like.

Quit telling others what they must think.

I guess crosses need to be banned. While we’re at it “T” and “t” need to be banned from the alphabet. Power poles, telephone poles, T-shirts, etc, all may make someone uncomfortable. Ban it.

Those who suffered, those who died, and those who survived the Holocaust, must have tried, as did Job, to make sense of such a colossal tragedy. In the end, after all the misery he and his family endured, Job remained faithful, saying "God has given. God has taken away. Blessed be God's name."

All of Job's trials were the ideas of Satan, who claimed that if God took away Job's wealth, family, and finally his health, Job would lose his faith, but he did not. FFRF would deny Job's triumph.

War and Remembrance, a miniseries from the book of the same name, showed Jewish scholar Jastrow in the Teresienstadt Ghetto (temporary location until transportation to Auschitz). See the video War and Remembrance Aaron Jastrow Story of Job
