The City of King, North Carolina, has settled a four-year battle in agreeing to remove a veteran’s memorial that featured a praying soldier and a Christian flag.

After spending $50,000 in legal fees, the city voted 3-2 Tuesday to agree not fly the Christian flag, to end its flag lottery policy, and to remove the statue depicting a soldier kneeling before a cross-shaped marker, the Winston-Salem Journal reported.

“The decision to settle this case has been very difficult for the King city council,” the city said in a press release, The Daily Caller reported. “It was not reached until it became clear that the costs of proceeding to trial would greatly exceed the city’s insurance policy limits.”

    Why are many liberals against christian faith? This once great nation was founded on christian beliefs. I really believe our president is still Muslim because he still supports islamic terrorists!! Period!!!

    What are you doing?
    Stop bowing to the islam Christian haters.
    There is going to be a religious war right on the soil of America and those who are against American values are going to be burning in Hell when it ends.

    I hope some good citizen will take these items and display them on private property.

    pay for this.

    It is truly a shame that this has been brought on by those that consider themselves Christians. The fundamentalists have driven everyone else into a corner and now they are coming back out fighting. There is such a thing as leaving well enough alone. Now that the attempt has failed just like the Nazi attempt did at one governmentally controlled church the same people are attempting to force their views on government on everyone and that also will fail.
