A religious watchdog group says a cross and motto on the emblem of an Army hospital in Colorado violate the constitutional requirement for separation of church and state and should be removed.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation asked the Army this week to change the emblem of Evans Army Community Hospital at Fort Carson, outside Colorado Springs.
The emblem says "Pro deo et humanitate" or "For God and humanity."
Fort Carson commanders will review the complaint, Lt. Col. Steve Wollman said.
He said the emblem had been approved by the Army Institute of Heraldry and has been in use since 1969.
Wollman said references to doctors serving God and humanity date to the time of Hippocrates, a pre-Christianity Greek physician.
Wollman said the cross, which has a pointed base, is both an emblem of mercy and a symbol dating to the Middle Ages, when pilgrims carried a cross with a spiked base to mark the site of a camp.

When the government take over of the health care system is 100% complete, you can kiss goodbye hospital names like St. Annes, St. Joseph, etc. It’s coming!
God will judge America and it won’t be pretty. I truly fear for the future of my children. How did we let this happen???
Stripping our country from our heritage - one piece at a time!
What? I thought that the “St.” was short for “street”!
A friend I work with told me that when Mao took over China that they quit education for a generation or two so that ignorant parents could raise a “blank” child and then be indoctrinated by Mao. Just think of how bad the liberals scream when someone like Glen Beck does a show on the Founding Fathers. They hate it.
we’re SMOKIN’ them out.....PRO-American vs. ANTI-American
To be completely PC, they need to remove all of the crosses in our national cemeteries......HUH! That would be politically correct......right?
Time to move THEM “over there”,
and US “over here”
and put up a border fence to keep them out.
I am curious if the Hispanic clergy who are suing over illegal immigrants (and their tithes) are feeling the same issues?
So do we replace all the crosses at national cemeteries?
Or do we make these unpatriotic atheists cut the grass around them?
Maybe then they might understand
"Worn from: 2 April 1943 - Current.
The first Fifth Army design was abandoned at the request of Commanding General Mark Clark who wanted a patch that was more representative of the area in which the Fifth was formed. The second design is an outlined figure of a mosque, represen- tative of Morocco, North Africa, where the army was activated in January 1943. The letter "A" indicates army. From Operation Avalanche -- the invasion of Italy at the Gulf of Salerno -- to its final push across the Po Valley, the Fifth Army engaged in 604 continuous days of combat.
Campaigns: World War II (Naples-Foggia, Anzio, Rome-Arno, North Apennines, Po Valley)."
Every few years, someone files suit trying to change proper city names like San Fransisco and San Diego. And each time, such suits are dismissed, usually on the basis of standing.
So, rest easy. You're far more likely to die in those hospitals because of government incompetence LONG before they're able to change their names.
“Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation,”
Ya know, this seems or sounds like a jewish person running an organization attacking Christians again.
We should review his organization website and supporters.
“Mikey was named one of the 50 most influential Jews in America by the Forward, one of the nations preeminent Jewish publications”
From their website.
The motto of Fort Carson’s 10th Combat Support Hospital is IN CRUCE VINCAM which translates to I Shall Conquer By The Cross. And the CSH’s distinctive unit insignia has two *gasp!* crosses on it (one maroon and one white). That would really make their heads explode!
Here is their site.

Hence my tag line that I have used for well over a year.
