Triumph of the Cross 2012

About two years ago--May 11, 2010, we noted the following story:

A couple weeks ago we mentioned that the Supreme Court upheld the right of a cross to continue to remain in the Mojave Desert on Federal land as it has stood since 1934. It was built by the Veterans of Foreign Wars as a war memorial to the dead of WWI.

Five of the Supremes held, correctly, that it was not a violation of the First Amendment to allow the cross to remain.

Well, certain sore losers decided to destroy the Monument over the weekend. The Cross was ripped down and taken to parts unknown.

A sign of the times, and not a good one. Excellent news: The Cross stays. The ACLU and company have dropped the lawsuit. We are delighted.
