Court orders removal of veterans’ memorial cross

A constitutional offense

Last week's decision by the 9th Circuit Court to remove a solitary Roman cross from a World War I veterans memorial in California's Mojave Desert has drawn an angry response from the American Legion, a major association of U.S. veterans.

"Today's lawyers and judges are outlawing the values and religious symbols that the Founding Fathers revered and proclaimed as the very foundation of the American republic," Conatser, head of the 2.7 million-member American Legion, said in a recent press release. "Today it's a memorial. Tomorrow, these same judges can order the removal of crosses on veterans gravestones, the dismissal of military chaplains and the closure of base chapels."

Little by little, the ACLU and the Courts are taking away all our Christian signs and symbols, our right to life, our very right to worship our Triune God! Because of the sin of atheism, Almighty God through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary will soon correct the conscience of the world. I pity those who have attacked and slandered our loving Savior!
