UnAmerican Legion Denies to Atheist Commissioner the Freedom Americans Died Fighting For

Funny how the people who scream so loudly about "American Freedom" are so ignorant of what it means.

From Crooks and Liars:

An Illinois American Legion post announced last week that it had decided to withhold financial support for the Morton Grove Park District because an atheist park commissioner refused to pledge allegiance to the United States flag "under God."

At a Thursday park board meeting, Post 134 Commander Joseph Lampert told Commissioner Dan Ashta that Legion members did not "accept" his right not to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance -- even though many veterans had died to protect that right.
I take it back.  Not remotely funny at all.
