A Little Bit O’ Sense: Mojave Cross Can Stay

Post image for A Little Bit O’ Sense: Mojave Cross Can Stay

Here’s the latest from the front lines of the battle between Religious Freedom and Government Kingdom.  Last year I posted on the effort to remove the Mojave Cross veteran’s memorial from public land. This week the Supreme Court finally ruled on the case.

By a 5-4 decision, they ruled that the cross could stay because nowhere in the constitution does it call for the “eradication of all religious symbols in the public realm.” Duh. Thank goodness we still have 5 out of 9 Supreme Court judges with a little common (and constitutional) sense. You can read more on the decision here.

I would appreciate your thoughts in a quick one-click poll on this issue at the bottom of this post here.

Well, duh. This shouldn’t even be an issue. The fact it went to the Supreme Court is ridiculous.

Hey Matthew,
I had the opportunity to meet Kelly Shackelford last week when he spoke at the Carrollton Tea Party. His organization the Liberty Institute is doing amazing things fighting this fight and many others against the ACLU.
This one was a big win but the battle is still not over!!

‘…NOWHERE IN THE CONSTITUTION does it call for the “eradication of all religious symbols in the public realm.” ‘ Amen! This decision sets a very good precedent. Thanks be to God.
