    APASID, thank you for your thoughtful take on this nonsense. From what I have been able to gather it appears to me Mr. Wackrow is a frequent complainer with the intention of disruption. Whatever troubles him, I hope he can learn to deal with it. Becoming a bitter man makes for a very unhappy life. Merry Christmas Mr. Wackrow!

    I must say APASID, you said it well. I am a Christian and your response has class. Thanks

    There are some places on this web site that refer to the "Mormon Temple" in Kalispell. There is no temple in Kalispell. I'ts a meeting house.

    My answer to this out of state group of trouble makers is: LET THE KIDS SING!!! And stay out of Montana's business.

    As a fellow atheist and graduate of WHS, I find the actions by this group a bit too much; it's actually embarrassing to say the least. They have too much time on their hands. What they need to do is to yank their heads out of their arses, pull their bottom lip over their heads and swallow.

    First it's the Jesus statue that they have an issue with and now this. I firmly believe the Jesus statue should remain on Big Mountain as it is and where it is. It has never offended me and never will, as I respect others' decisions to believe in what they choose to. I understand what this group is attempting to do, but all this does is negate their agenda with their illogical intentions.

    As they have the right to believe or not believe in whatever they choose, so do Christians, those of Jewish decent, and all other persons of all religions. What I don't support is the consistent agenda pushing by this group and others who intend on causing disruption

    Live and let live. Sing your Christmas songs loud and proud my fellow Bulldogs! Don't allow this group to steal your sunshine, it's your sun too! ;)

    Words of wisdom to this "remedial" atheist group (which I firmly contend that they do not represent me or my opinion):

    "You know what happens when you look for a fight? You find it."
