  6. What a Waste

    How silly this is, goodness. There are crosses, crescents and the star of David all over federal property, Arlington anybody? The commemoration of fallen soldiers is a pretty long shot from the state endorsement or support of a religion. Who knows, maybe the ACLU will start whining about military cemeteries displaying religious iconography next? Good grief, fretting about human dignity when there are more than enough actual civil liberties being threatened from left and right. You think the ACLU could therefore find some of those to defend. (Which occasionally, very rarely, they do, but seemingly just by accident as of late.)

    Amendment 1. "Congress shall make no law respecting and establishment of religion..."
    No law was made by Congress in this case. So no National religion has been established.

    "... or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ..."
    A private organization paid for and erected a memorial, freely exercising their religious beliefs.

    "or abridging the freedom of speech..."
    The SCOTUS have determined in previous cases that symbols represent speech.

    Case closed. The box comes off and the memorial stays.

    Supreme Court supports cross on federal land in Calif

    Supreme Court says Mojave cross can stand
    In a divided ruling, the justices rule that the 1st Amendment calls for ‘accommodation’ of religious displays on public land rather than strict separation of church and state.
    The Supreme Court gave its approval Wednesday to displaying a cross on public land to honor fallen soldiers, saying the Constitution "does not require the eradication of all religious symbols in the public realm."

    Nowhere in the Constitution does it say anything at all...nothing, nada, zip,zero, zilch about "the separation of church and state"!
