Mosques Good, Crosses Bad
Build a mosque next to Ground Zero and the progressive left will cheer. Erect a cross in honor of a dead cop, and the left will sue.
Fourteen crosses that stand along a Utah state highway as a memorial to highway patrol troopers who’ve lost their lives in the line of duty have been ruled a violation of the U.S. Constitution.
The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Wednesday that the 12-foot high white crosses were an endorsement of religion, implying a state preference for Christianity.
You have to be some kind of lawyer-genius to see how putting up a cross is an establishment of state religion; since the sight of a cross compels no one to believe anything. But this isn’t really about establishing a state religion, is it? It’s about atheists who can’t stand ANY public acknowledgment of faith.
Common sense would say, let the trooper’s family decide if they want a cross. And if the sight of a cross offends you, shut up and don’t be a pussy about it.
