On Big Mountain outside Whitefish Montana, there sits a historically significant World War II Memorial statue of Jesus that has been located in the Flathead National Forest near Kalispell, Montana since 1953. The statue is maintained by the Knights of Columbus Council No. 1328 and celebrated by the local community. It sits on a 25' by 25' parcel of land leased from the Forest Service.
When the US Forest Service denied a lease extension for the statue and demanded that it be moved, Montana's only Congressman, Denny Rehberg, took action. His letter to the Forest Service was just the beginning of a public outcry in defense of the statue. See news video here.
The Forest Service quickly put its decision on hold for the current time in order to seek public comment.
That's where your action is critical! Unless the US Forest Service hears from patriotic citizens like you, it could ultimately deny renewing the lease and order the statue removed.
Enough is enough! You can instantly send an email directly to Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell and Northern Region Forester Leslie Weldon.
Let them know the American people are tired of the heavy hand of government trying to remove every vestige of our Christian heritage.
