From the Christian Post:

Officials in Dugger, Ind., have decided against heading to court to challenge a claim from the Washington, D.C.-based Americans United for Separation of Church and State that a 26-foot cross reading "Jesus Saves" situated on public land is a violation of the Constitution, as it appears to endorse Christianity. Instead, the town will sell the property.

The Dugger Town Council decided earlier this week to have the small crop of land and its cross appraised to see how much they might sell for, according to Dwight Nielsen, the town council president. Nielsen suspects the half-acre site could be worth as much as $2,000 or $3,000.

Response: A good resolution if it works and the challengers in this case seem to be accepting of the possibility. Here’s a link to our original post on this cross in Indiana.

In several other cases like the Mt. Soledad case in San Diego, the plaintiffs have actually blocked a sale of the property and continued instead to demand that the cross be dismantled. In those situations the atheists involved have demonstrated that the cases were really all about intolerance rather than a any real concern about the separation of church and state.            *Top
