North Carolina city removes sculpture of soldier kneeling before cross

January 11, 2015

Until a few days ago, a war memorial in a public park in North Carolina included a metal sculpture depicting a soldier kneeling in prayer before a cross. But city officials voted to remove the sculpture to settle a lawsuit claiming the artwork promoted Christianity.

King, a small city of about 6,000 people 15 miles north of Winston-Salem, dedicated the memorial about a decade ago. But the statue was removed Tuesday night, immediately after The King city council voted 3-2 to end the lawsuit. Now, an empty hole can be seen where the statue once stood.

MyFox8 in Winston-Salem, reporting on the controversy the other day, said the memorial is on city-owned land but was paid for through private donations.

    this removal of the statue is absurd, this country was founded on judeo christian values…and i am not a christian, but if some people don’t like the statue they should go make their own, why are their values being imposed in the rest of us!!???

    If that was my home state, the members of that town council that voted to remove that statue would be “removed, by force”, Period! It just breaks my heart to see the South becoming so cowardly!
