The Conservative-Majority U.S. Supreme Court Takes Up The Biggest Religion Case Of Its Current Term
America will destroy itself from within. Too much Political Correctness, too many wussies overly concerned with offending someone.
But some people that are living here are real American and stand up for our country and our tradition!
We all know that we have a 5-4 majority in the Supreme Court but we will see if they are real conservatives because on today the Supreme Court takes up one of the biggest cases of its current term when it weighs whether a cross-shaped war memorial on public land in Maryland is an unconstitutional government endorsement of religion.
The war memorial has seen better days. Sitting in a traffic circle in the Washington suburbs, the Bladensburg Peace Cross as it is known has large cracks in its tan concrete and pink granite. Water damage has stained the 40-foot structure, covered partially by a tarp to prevent more decay.
The so-called Peace Cross, a 40-foot-tall (12 meters) concrete memorial to 49 men from Maryland’s Prince George’s County killed in World War One, is situated on public land at a busy road intersection in Bladensburg just outside Washington.
Fred Edwords and two other plaintiffs filed a 2014 lawsuit challenging the cross as a violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Establishment Clause, which prohibits the government from establishing an official religion and bars governmental actions favoring one religion over another.
Justices y will hold 70 minutes of oral arguments and hear from both sides over an issue that has divided the courts and the public for decades. It presents another opportunity for consistent, clear markers to be created on when such “passive” religious displays and speech, if ever, can occur in the public arena.
Hundreds of similar cross-shaped war memorials across the country, as well as other religious displays, could be affected. Those include permanent Ten Commandments monuments and seasonal Nativity scenes in local parks.
The Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty and the American Jewish Committee are among those backing the memorial’s removal. But 109 members of Congress and 28 states are among those filing briefs in support of the veterans.
This is a huge fight for Christians and Christianity o our country and it’s widely ignored by the MSM!
Let’s share this and tell the left what we think about religious monuments around our country!
