A 43 foot cross which has stood on Mount Soledad in San Diego since 1954 must be removed within 90 days. Federal judge Larry Burns made the ruling in a suit brought by the ACLU and other groups who said the cross was an endorsment of an unconstitutional state sponsored religion.
AWD isn’t a lawyer (I’m an honest man) and, if I was, damn sure wouldn’t be one for the ACLU. Not unless being an ACLU lawyer would get me closer to other ACLU lawyers so I could kick their miserable, commie asses! I’m not sure how a cross on a mountain that honors America’s war dead is an endorsement of Christianity as a state sponsored religion. If Christianity was state sponsored, the commies at the ACLU would be forced to be in church each Sunday rather than worshiping Satan.
“This is a victory for religious liberty,” said Daniel Mach, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s program on freedom of religion and belief who argued the matter for the plaintiffs in a hearing before Burns on Thursday.
“We firmly support the government’s efforts to honor the service of those who fought and died for this country, but there are many ways to do that without playing favorites with religion,” Mach said.
If Mach is so concerned about playing favorites with religion, why not just leave the cross and add a Jewish menorah, a Buddha statue, and an icicle for libtards that worship Al Gore’s false religion of Global Warming? Maybe hold a few stonings for the Muslims? Anyway, methinks Mr Mach and the ACLU wouldn’t be making a stink if there was a mosque being built on Mt Soledad. But since Mt Soledad is in California, a mosque on the mountaintop probably isn’t too far away.
If the cross hasn’t been a problem for 50 years, why is it now? Just one more poke in the eye of traditional America. So what about crosses at Arlington National Cemetery? Must they be removed from the grave sites of our war heroes there, too? What about Normandy? And all the others? With liberal judges filling the benches of this falling nation, you better believe those crosses will soon be in the ACLU’s sights!
AWD’s buddy and singer/songwriter extroidinaire Jon Christopher Davis recorded a song and made a video to support keeping the cross on Mt Soledad a few years ago. Jon’s a patriot and an all around good guy and one hell of a musical artist! I showed him a few chords.
Here’s the video titled “Don’t Tear Me Down.” If this video doesn’t give you chills, you must be a lawyer for the ACLU! Watch it and spread this around to your friends.
I’m afraid the America we knew and loved is gone forever.
