As WorldNetDaily reported, the Anti-Defamation League vowed to sue Riverside County in California if the quote is not removed from the historic county courthouse. Since 1930, the quote has been engraved on a wall with other sayings, some secular in nature, that reflect the personal and diverse philosophies of the nation's past leaders, including Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson. The Roosevelt quote reads: "The true Christian is the true citizen." The ADL claims that the quote "marginalizes" non-Christians coming into contact with the courthouse.
