 County displays Christian quote despite threat

[img]https://www.sermonindex.net/images/forum/2004/may/featured_news.gif[/img]

Despite the threat of a lawsuit, a county board decided yesterday to continue allowing the public display of a quote by President Theodore Roosevelt that is favorable to Christians.

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.
