The Supreme Court ruled 5-4, that a metal cross mounted to a rock can stay in the Mohave desert. I guess that’s a victory. It looks like so much discussion over nothing to me. The Constitution speaks of prohibiting the establishment of a state religion, not about what sort of symbolic gestures citizens can make. This cross was put up to honor those who died in World War One. It’s been there for 75 years. After one complaint, it’s a problem?
The four liberal judges say that any religious symbols on public land are Constitutionally wrong. They are all in Washington, D.C., aren’t they? They ought to take a short field trip across the river to Arlington National Cemetery. Want to discuss just exactly how many crosses there might be on federal land?
Jesus answered, “I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!”
