    Guess what has disappeared at the Washington Monument in D.C.? The inscription "Laus Deo, (Praise be to God)" which was on a plaque at the base of the monument, which is a replica of a plaque at the top of the monument that cannot be seen by visitors. Pastor Todd DuBord of Lake Almanor Community Church, who knew about the inscription from previous visits, noticed it missing on a recent visit.

    Here's two photos of the plaque, with and without the inscription:

    It was the third time in just the past few weeks that an agency of the federal government has banned the use of "God." First was the Architect of the Capitol banning religious references when issuing flag certificates. That ruling was later rescinded. Next came the Veterans Administration censoring religious references in the script used to describe each fold of the flag at 125 national cemeteries. That censoring came after only one person complained.

    We're on a roll here, ain't we? Three times the charm.

    Read the whole story.

    To comment to the National Park Service, you can e-mail [email protected], or write snail mail to:
    National Park Service, National Mall & Memorial Parks, 900 Ohio Drive, SW, Washington , DC 20024.

    Or sign an AFA petition to President Bush asking him to rescind the action to ban the flag-folding recitation now in use.

    I'm all about keeping church seperate from school and government, but they are definitely taking it more than just a little too far. History is history and the past doesn't need to be re-written for the PC crowd. :roll: Can't they find a more productive way to waste my tax dollars? :evil:
