President Bush acted Monday to prevent the removal of a cross from a war memorial at Mount Soledad in San Diego.
The court-ordered removal of the cross is currently stayed pending appeals.
The President signed a bill which transferred the land to the Defense Department and designated it a national war memorial.
This is outstanding news. It's just sad that our nation has had to "federalize" this property to protect it from legal vultures who insist on infringing on the religious rights of others with frivolous lawsuits. As this article makes clear, the legal action is likely to go on.
As a citizen comments in the article, "What are they going to do, take the crosses off Arlington?"
