Court sides with Knights of Columbus over Jesus Statue on Public Land
Last edited 9th November 2015

In the 1950s, the Knights of Columbus built a memorial to American soldiers who died in World War II. The statue depicts Jesus and was built on Big Mountain in Montana. It's become a cultural landmark, and it's known as "Big Mountain Jesus.” The Knights received permission from the government to keep the statue there, and they have maintained it for decades. In 2012, an organization called the Freedom from Religion Foundation sued to have the statue permanently removed. This came after tens of thousands of people voiced their support for the statue after the Knights' permit was almost not renewed.
