Supreme Court: Peace Cross Can Stay Where It Is

The decision this week is a major victory for both Christians and the American history that this memorial represents

A 40-foot World War I Memorial known as the Peace Cross can remain on public property, according to a ruling by the Supreme Court on Thursday.

The ruling is a big blow to the cult of atheism — and a victory for both Christians and the American history this cross represents.

The Peace Cross, located in Bladensburg, Maryland, features a plaque at its base naming 49 local residents who died during World War I.

Erected 100 years ago in 1919 and completed in 1925, the base also displays the words “valor,” “endurance,” “courage,” and “devotion.”

This, in the eyes of three residents, was offensive — so they joined a group representing atheists and agnostics in a lawsuit to have it removed.

One of the offended, according to Fox 5, said he did not know the cross was a war memorial and assumed its existence “implied that the city favored Christians over others.”

Victory! The case went to the Supreme Court, where the majority ruled in favor of the cross.

Justice Samuel Alito, who penned most of the majority opinion, wrote that “there is no evidence of discriminatory intent in the selection of the design of the memorial or the decision of a Maryland commission to maintain it.”

“The Religion Clauses of the Constitution aim to foster a society in which people of all beliefs can live together harmoniously,” Alito added, “and the presence of the Bladensburg Cross on the land where it has stood for so many years is fully consistent with that aim.”

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor were the only two to dissent on this opinion, with the former declaring that the cross was unconstitutional.

“Using the cross as a war memorial does not transform it into a secular symbol,” Ginsburg argued.

Atheists are constantly trying to remove symbols of God and faith at every turn, in our view. They feign outrage, but their obsession with eradicating faith, a major part of the founding of this country, is in itself a religion.

Last August, a group of 29 atheists, children of atheists, and atheist groups filed a lawsuit claiming that the motto In God We Trust violated their rights and amounted to religious coercion.

They lost.

Repeated losses in the court system aren’t stopping the Left from continuing their assault on God.

Extremist Democrats have recently been removing the phrase “so help me God” from the oath administered to witnesses testifying before congressional committees.

In 2012, the DNC famously attempted to restore a reference to God to their party platform, a notion that a large and loud group of delegates at the convention continually booed.
