President Bush Takes Federal Control of Mt. Soledad Cross

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?"

I am so glad to hear Bush stepped in. I agree, though, it is pathetic that the government has to protect a cross from a bunch of secular humanists/atheists.

As MHH says, "pathetic" is the right word. Of course, it's even more pathetic of the people to want to remove the cross. As with many things, one wonders what the heck is the point. I heard that one of the Scandinavian countries is going to print Jesus' name with a lowercase "j" in order to reduce its annoyance to non-Christians. First of all, it's a name! Names are initial-capped, aren't they?? Second of all, will they also write "mohammed"? and "buddha"? Somehow I doubt it. More importantly, what does it prove or solve???
