You Just Can't Make This Stuff Up


 
Apparently, a cross in the Mojave Desert built to honor fallen soldiers of WWI is at the center of the ACLU's latest attack on common sense.  They want it removed.  Because it "has been judged to be an unconstitutional display of government favoritism of one religion over another."  I had to check the URL to make sure I hadn't stumbled onto an Onion post unawares...  nope.  This is from the Washington Post. 

For now, the 6.5 ft tall cross stands encased in a wooden box.



Now that's freedom and tolerance for ya.

The ACLU only protects certain freedoms. Freedom of religion for Christians isn't something they like. I wonder if it was a giant Wicca display if they would care...

It's sad, isn't it? I just moved to the Philippines with my Filipina wife this past July. We were shopping at a huge megamall here,and at noon,all the hundreds of workers and shoppers stopped and prayed along with the daily devotion being broadcast throughout the store. Quite a contrast. Thanks for a great post.
