A public-interest law firm is trying to prevent a courthouse from removing a religious quote by President Theodore Roosevelt by warding off a threatened lawsuit with legal action of its own.

The Pro-Family Law Center is suing the operators of the Riverside County Historic Courthouse in California and the Anti-Defamation League, which vowed to sue earlier this week if the quote is not removed.

Roosevelt's statement, "The true Christian is the true citizen," is engraved in gold on a mahogany wall at one of the courthouse departments.

Full Story...

Someone please explain to me how admonishing Christians to be good citizens is anti-semitic. I know of nothing in Judaism that would encourage Jews to be bad citizens, so it can't be the "good citizen" thing. Apparently there is so little real anti-semitism in the world today that the ADL has to try to invent some. Perhaps the boneheads at the ADL could spend a little time in Israel and witness the kind of anti-Semitism they experience from Palestinians on a daily basis before whining about a quote that encourages Christians to be good citizens.
