A resident is suing the Chicago suburb of Burbank, alleging that the city’s new vehicle sticker violates her constitutional rights.
The sticker bears the image of asoldier with a rifle, kneeling in front of a gravesite that bears a cross.
City officials say the cross is a generic symbol and wasn’t picked for any religious reasons.
For the record I am against cars forcibly being converted to the faith. We never seem to ask our cars first before putting on a political bumper sticker or attaching a religious item to it. I bet many cars are embarrassed by the bumper stickers on them. Though I am sure my car is properly Catholic since it reverently approaches cross streets.
Our society though has become a society of victims where offense is looked for and taken repeatedly, so much for multiculturalism or respect for diversity. Instead of the example of a melting pot that was traditionally used we have become more like a centrifuge where every element is separated from each other.
I also think our court system should institute a laugh test. Every lawsuit should be read first before a panel and if anybody laughs when it is read out it is thrown out.
