On June 20, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled7-2 in favor of allowing the Bladensburg Peace Cross to stand at a busy intersection in Maryland.
For nearly 100 years, this memorial has stood in honor of the 49 heroes of Prince George’s County who sacrificed their lives in WWI.
Claiming to be offended by the cross, however, the American Humanist Association took legal action to remove the memorial, which was originally built on private property with private funds.
Public displays of the cross are increasingly under attack. Attorney with First Liberty, Jeremy Dys, warned what might come next. “If this memorial is desecrated or bulldozed to the ground, it’s only a matter of time before the wrecking ball turns on the two World War I crosses in Arlington National Cemetery…”
The attempt to tear down the cross was oppose by a large group from the Catholic group Tradition, Family, Proprty, and we salute them for their stand.
“We will never give up the cross,” read their banner on display at the foot of the cross, visible to cars passing by.
Contempt for Christian symbols is not new. Communist regimes attacked the Cross. Islamic terrorists attack the Cross. And now secular humanists – who are in fact often ‘secretly’ fired up with either Satanist or Talmudist hatred of Jesus and his followers – are attempting to stamp out the most exalted symbol of Christianity.
