Permit the Statue of Jesus to remain on top of Big Mountain in Montana

This Statue of Jesus was erected on top of Big Mountain in 1953 in HONOR of all the Veterans coming home from World War II. The Knights of Columbus have renewed their permit every 10years with the US Forest Service and this year, the US Forest Service has denied their permit renewal. No one has ever complained about this statue.

      Headed towards 1000 signatures. We are at 812 now. Great article in the Whitefish Pilot this week. Let's keep the signatures coming. Share on all your group pages, in emails, on Facebook. We are getting alot of publicity on this now. Hopefully it's all going to work out for the best.

      Once we hit 500 signatures I will be sending the information along to Denny Rehberg for him to use in saving the statue. It's starting to get National News more and more. I feel the "Freedom From Religion" group may have hit something a little to personal here in Montana. We aren't Wisconsinites and we won't put up with this insult to our community.

      The Constitution is one of the most powerful, yet simplest documents ever written. What has been done to this magnificient document over the years is a disgrace to the freedoms that were ushered in over 200 years ago. ENOUGH!!!!!!!

      I am a Christian and a Vet. It is time we start fighting back and do what is right.
