Obama Appointed Judge Orders Removal of Memorial with Christian Cross


Judge Stephanie Thacker, an Obama appointed judge in West Virginia has demanded a memorial be taken down simply because it includes a “Christian cross.”
This is just another horrific example of the left’s incessant war against Christianity and anti-Christian platform.
Christianity is under attack in our country like never before.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit just ruled that a World War I monument dedicated to those who died serving their country is unconstitutional. Why? Because the monument, which is known as the Peace Cross, is the Christian cross. The Court ruled in a 2-1 decision that because the cross is a Christian symbol, and because the monument is funded partially through tax dollars, it violates the First Amendment.
Judge Stephanie D. Thacker wrote, “The Latin cross is the core symbol of Christianity. And here, it is 40 feet tall; prominently displayed in the center of one of the busiest intersections in Prince George’s County, Maryland; and maintained with thousands of dollars in government funds. Therefore, we hold that the purported war memorial breaches the ‘wall of separation between Church and State.’”
Apparently, we can’t pay respect to fallen soldiers with Christian symbols. And here I thought America was a predominantly Christian country!
The ruling doesn’t make any sense. Many government-funded monuments to fallen soldiers contain Christian symbolism. Plenty of graves in Arlington National Cemetery have Christian crosses on them. Would the Court rule those graves unconstitutional? Give me a break.
What seems to be the issue is the prominence of the Peace Cross. Since the monument is located within the view of a busy intersection, it’s a visual nuisance to the public. Of course, there is religious symbolism all around the U.S., and not just Christian symbols either. So why focus in on a Christian cross dedicated to soldiers who died in combat?
Because some anti-Christian demanded to have their way. From the Huffington Post: “The American Humanist Association filed a lawsuit after residents complained of ‘unwelcome contact’ with the Peace Cross and said they were ‘offended by the prominent government display,’ according to the ruling.”
