-9th Circuit Rules Mt. Soledad Cross Unconstitutional

by Dr. D ~ January 5th, 2011

The Cross, the center of much controversy, sit...

                                          (Mt. Soledad Cross via Wikipedia)

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that the cross displayed at Mt. Soledad Memorial since 1913 near La Jolla, California is unconstitutional. The ruling will be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Again the overwhelming will and vote of the people of San Diego have been disregarded by the legal shenanigans of a few. The City of san Diego has been under assault concerning the very visible cross since 1989.

On two occasions it looked like the memorial property would be sold but each time it was blocked by lawsuits.

Finally it was transferred to the Federal government in August 2010 authorized by a bill passed in Congress in 2006. Immediately there were two lawsuits against the transfer.

Response: It is obvious that the activists that oppose the cross want it taken down regardless and really do not want the situation to be solved in any other way.

Every time an attempt has made to solve the issue by transferring this public property to the Mount Soledad Memorial Association or sell it to a private group it was blocked by lawsuits. The Voters of San Diego have even voted overwhelmingly to support the transfer but again it has bee thwarted by a few.

If this cross is deemed ‘unconstitutional’ then what about all of the crosses at Arlington Cemetery or at any other federal memorial?
