ACLU Wins Battle Over Religious Overhead Lines

SAN FRANCISCO, CA-- Following a legal challenge from the American Civil Liberties Union, the US Government must replace all overhead transmission lines that have the common "Cross" design because it violates the separation of Church and State implied by the US Constitution.

ACLU lawyers were pleased by the ruling from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which accepted the argument that the "cross" design for power line poles was converting people against their will to Christianity.  "This obviously violates the US Constitution, which stipulates that the Government must pretend Christianity doesn't exist", an ACLU public relations representative said.

The US Government was ordered by the Court to design a new transmission tower and replace all the illegal ones by December 25, 2010.  Government officials indicated they plan to reproduce one that is acceptable to the ACLU and already in use in Dearborn, Michigan.

The ACLU has plans to follow up on the success of this lawsuit by challenging other areas where the US Government coerces citizens to convert to Christianity, such as using the letter "t" in nearly every official document.
