    Monumental Challenge

    I got "Wind" of this, this morning. I was very surprized it has been so quiet in the news. I quickly looked around the net news and see most posts are very recent.

    The case before the SCOTUS: Salazar v. Buono

    From the American Legion Website: Monumental Challenge | American Legion

    An American Civil Liberties Union establishment-clause lawsuit has forced the federal government to conceal the Mojave Desert memorial inside a wooden box until the case is cleared up. When it hears Salazar v. Buono on Oct. 7, the Supreme Court will decide whether the box comes off or if the cross comes down. The decision will likely shape similar cases currently in the judicial system, and those looming ahead.
    From the VFW Web site Last May... Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) :: News

    Remembering is what a group of veterans had in mind in 1934 when they erected a simple memorial in the shape of a cross to honor 53,000 Americans who had died in battle during our nation's 19-month involvement in what was called the "War to End All Wars."

    Seventy-five years later, the U.S. Supreme Court will determine whether that gesture of respect violates the U.S. Constitution's separation of church and state. This is because the memorial resides on federal property in the middle of California's Mojave National Preserve...
    I don't know what upsets me more on this issue, The Attacks on our fundimental beliefs, the ACLU, or the Amount of money we need spend to defend this...

    If SCOTUS rules for the ACLU, we will see an attack on all things of Christian value

    Hasn't that already been happening for decades?
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]In order to rally people, governments need enemies. They want us to be afraid, to hate, so we will rally behind them. And if they don't have a real enemy, they'll invent one in order to mobilize us.

    Fox News has been talking about the case for a couple day. To me this is just a waste of time and shouldn't an issue at all. I hope SCOTUS ridicules and scorns the ACLU!

  8. This was in VFW magazine a few months ago. It's a shame when there is any debate whatsoever over a memorial to our veterans.
