Where does a privately owned bank have the power to tell another privately owned bank to remove
all vestiges of Chritianity from its premise and web sites?

It seems the Federal Reserve has granted itself unyielding power over the Banking comunity,
not surprising really ; when we have a Congress that has recently granted itself power to
ignore the Constitution with the passage of the forced healthcare bill we will all have to deal with soon.


What's to keep the government from invading our homes and dictate what religion we can practice
and what can be displayed, if running a business from your home.

Oi, what a farce! I am not Christian and I am still offended by this rediculous move. The Fed does NOT have this authority and the bank should not have complied.

This is yet another example of private corporations enforcing their own set of laws using the power of the wallet.

for what it is worth...i applaud the decision, banking and christianity SHOULD HAVE NOTHING in common. and if you do not know why...you need to do some independant research.

I mean, it's their home. Their bank, just some slogans on a website. Now, if it were having to say a prayer to get your money, that would be making headline news. No harm displaying that you are a christian.
