    Man Wins Lawsuit Against North Carolina City, Christian War Statue Removed

    A city in North Carolina has been forced to remove a memorial of a soldier kneeling next to a Christian cross after a man sued the city, saying it violated his rights.
    Steven Hewett sued the city of King in November 2012 after he spotted the religious monument standing at Veteran’s Memorial in King Central Park. A lengthy and expensive legal battle ensued and, despite the fact that the memorial was reportedly paid for with private donations, the city council voted 3-2 last Tuesday to approve the removal of the statue, reports the Daily Mail.
    City officials say their hands were tied because their litigation costs have already exceeded the city’s $1 million coverage and were fast approaching $2 million.
    “Both sides in this matter wish to avoid further costs, and this agreement will ensure that the City of King will not spend additional taxpayers’ funds to continue litigation in federal court,” read a statement issued by the city.
    Hewett has been awarded $1 in damages, but says he believes what he did was the right thing to honor those veterans whom he fought alongside in Afghanistan.
    “I proudly served alongside a diverse group of soldiers with a variety of different religious beliefs," Hewett said. "The City of King should be honoring everyone who served our country, not using their service as an excuse to promote a single religion.”
    The memorial has been standing for nearly one decade in the city of about 6,000 people, reports Fox News. As part of the agreement, the city will also pay $500,000 to Americans United for Separation of Church and State to cover the legal costs the organization has incurred over the lawsuit.

    5. To paraphrase T.S. Eliot..

      The rats are underneath the piles,
      the "Zionist" is underneath the lot.

    6. Does the three cops killed included the one in the video where there was no blood, no body reaction and clearly missed him completely yet he continued to lay there? Was he one of the three???

      Hopefully most of us know this is an obvious false flag operation by mossad. israel was mad at France for voting in favor of a Palestinian state, and they wanted to drop from the so called anti-terrorism coalition ... they really think we will fall for the bs ...

    7. The magazine was doing so badly, that it was going to shut down within two months. Also, when they did a piece against jews, it got taken down.But now??

      A junk magazine that runs 60,000 copies can suddenly run millions in 16 languages? Anyone with even a small knowledge of publishing knows that it is not done within days, it is a lengthy and complicated process to get the presses changed, to edit the pieces into the other languages and combine the whole lot into a finished and delivered product. Less than a week after the event they have millions printed and distributed in 16 languages! Bullshit unless you grasp that the whole thing had premeditation and forward planning. The French state knew and this has been milked accordingly for more persecution of Muslims, more Jewish kowtowing and less freedom of speech.
