The ACLU does not like a CROSS that has stood on federal lands in the Mojave National Preserve as a memorial to our soldiers of WORLD WAR I. The memorial has been in place since 1934.
The issue is whether the government can maintain a cross, a religious symbol, on federally-owned property, or does it violate the 1st Amendment, prohibiting the establishment of a religion.
Sadly, during this dispute, the cross has been covered up.
My question is– Have the ACLU members been to Arlington Cemetery?, Or is that next on their list? Might I suggest that they contact the Congressional Research Service office to get a full history of “religion” in the formation of our government.
Of special note: Our children cannot begin their school day with prayer, or our sports events with prayer, but each daily session of Congress begins with a prayer!
