SANITIZING SOCIETY

Catalyst May Issue 1998

There is a statue of Jesus in the city park in Marshfield, Wisconsin. The logo of Republic, Missouri has a fish on it. And this is regarded as a constitutional crisis.

The statue of Jesus was donated to Marshfield in 1959 by the Knights of Columbus. Since 1987, the Freedom from Religion Foundation has been looking for a plaintiff to sue the city of Marshfield, and in 1998 they finally found one. So they are suing.

The ACLU believes that a fish is “a secret sign of Christianity” and that is why the guardians of the liberty are suing the southwest Missouri town.

And all they talk about is tolerance.
