    They seem to think so, especially when it's a veteran's monument which is supposed to be standing as a monument to all of the veterans.

    And right after you do something never done before - submit your whole country to an unconditional (with a few conditions) surrender.

    MacArthur or not, the transformation in Japan from, say, 1943 to 1948 was remarkable. I'm not sure of any other similar-sized culture that's gone through a personality shift like that. One might argue that the sensibilities were the same but just developed a different focus. But that's probably for another thread.

    And of course, that's just one example. I think we could probably find more than one culture that's been able to maintain a level of decency and decent morality without religion driving the way.

    Besides that, the Jewish Veterans Federation got upset about the Christian prayer that Republican House members want to add onto the war memorial for World War II veterans. They claim it's exclusionary.
    I don't know about that but I don't see why they have to add the prayer of only one religion to monument that supposed represent people of all religions or no religion.
