A judge has ruled that a cross in a Korean War Memorial must be removed. What we have here is another case of a “living document” interpretation of the Constitution. A cross in a cemetery is not the establishment of a religion. It’s an expression of the faith of the people that erected it long before the cemetery was taken as federal property.
Do the progressives want to remove the crosses, crescents, and stars from the headstones in all the National Cemeteries? In that same Mount Soledad Memorial there are other smaller crosses and symbols of other religions on the plaques. Maybe a contract could be let to grind them off. Least someone see one and be unduly influenced to a life of faith. Let’s start there and move on to Arlington.
Arlington National Cemetery is filled with religious imagery. Here’s one on the official National Cemetery website. It’s the Argonne Cross erected to commemorate the losses in the Argonne Forest in WWI.
There’s crosses and other religious symbols all over Arlington. The symbols are small and chiseled into the stones. There’s a large list of available symbols to choose from. You can even proclaim your atheism if you like. That’s the first one, with the stylized atomic symbol.
When we are done, we will not have freedom of religion, we’ll have freedom from religion.
