BANNING THE LETTER "T"
Friday, February 16, 2007
Dr. Noel Gibeson Corbell
We, the undersigned, do hereby petition the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to hear our plea to ban forever the use of one letter by the United States federal government. It is an unconstitutional infringement on our right to practice our religion freely and the established doctrine of the separation between church and state.
We believe that the United States was founded based on religious freedom and the religious separation between church and state. Because we choose to be atheists and pagans, we feel that no one should not have to endure the indignity of having to view a Christian religious symbol disguised to look like an ordinary letter of the alphabet - the letter "t".
Every time the federal government uses the letter "t" all we see is a Christian holy cross. This is unconscionable. We are not certain if there is a Masonic connection as well. However, we are researching this unseemly prospect; a report is forthcoming.
This problem also has national and international implications. People from all over the world come to the U.S. to enjoy our freedom and liberty. They come from varied backgrounds and different religions. Muslims forced to use crosses to communicate; what an insult! It is unfair to them to have to fill out an official U.S. government form, such as visa request, that uses such words as 'from' and 'to' when the word 'to' clearly has a hidden Christian symbol imbedded in it - a cross. Are we trying to insult their religion and their sensibilities too?
Because of the seriousness of this matter, we also intend to pursue this matter through the United Nations for all countries that use this alphabet. These religious symbols will not be tolerated.
This matter could even go before the International Criminal Court, should the type and level of aggression and genocide in this matter approach that normally the purview of the ICC.
This is a global religious freedom matter and we will not equivocate on it, ever.
