Eventually, headstones at Arlington and medals for heroism will be targeted

Only a matter of time.

Is the Navy Cross and the Distinguished Fly Cross next?

As covered by Mike DeVine of Liberty Unyielding regarding a federal judge recent ruling that the Korean Veterans Memorial must remove its massive Cross high atop San Diego’s Mt. Soledad due to Hizzoner ruling the large but rather nondescript somehow advocated Christianity, thusly violating the Constitution’s separation of Church and State.

The reality of the matter is that the Mt. Soledad Cross is an all-inclusive memorial to all those who lost their lives during the Korean War.

Even among the locals in San Diego, the Cross is a looked upon as a secular symbol of unity and civic pride.

Service members of all Faith, to include those of none, are remembered at the Mt. Soledad Memorial.

For decades the hilltop was essentially the make out spot for teen-agers from nearby beach neighborhoods, the monument was once featured on a local Rock & Roll radio station’s yearly album of area musical talent.

KGB-FM’s 1974 “Homegrown II” featured as the first track a country-flavored ditty entitled Soledad Cross (listen here) with nary a mentioned of any of the Twelve Apostles, Christian proselytizing  or Jesus Christ Himself.

Yet hyper-technicalities and hyperventilating is what activist judges and bored atheists live for.

Standing on a micro-plot of federally owned property, the judicial victory for the anti-cross forces now kicks the door open for other legal mischief aimed at anything with even a whiff of religiosity meandering into the realm of the federal government.

Cpl. Richard S. Weinmaster, a Squad Automatic Weapon gunner with the 7th Marine Regiment smiles as he is awarded awarded the Navy Cross for personal heroism in combat.

Despite a 2009 internet hoax that the ACLU already went after government cemeteries, an obvious target in the wake of the recent ruling would be the Crosses and Stars of David at Veterans Cemeteries that dot the nation from Maine to the US Territory of Guam in the Western Pacific.To take ridiculousness to the next level, each of the Armed Services has their own particular medal that ranks second to the Medal of Honor.

What guarantees are there that lawsuits won’t be leveled against the Navy and Marine Corps’ Navy Cross or the all-services eligible Distinguished Flying Cross?

Don’t laugh… not that long ago it was considered laughable that the Cross Memorial on Soledad would one day be deemed as somehow violating the Constitution of the United States of America.

At his retirement ceremony. From Private to Full Bird - Colonel Eddie Ray is a true American hero. He was awarded the Navy Cross for valor in combat during Desert Storm. Later in his career, he led the first American battalion into Baghdad in 2003.

  1. I wish people would read the Constitution so they know it says nothing about separation of church and state

    1. Kevin, I agree! The Constitution is being misunderstood and used for destruction of our beloved freedoms that the Constitution gives us as American citizens. It is shameful!!

      1. It is more than shameful. The people doing this are guilty of HIGH TREASON. This shit needs to STOP. The American people need to find one of these malfeasants (like Dianne Feinstein, whom would have the American people stripped of their 2nd Amendment right to own and bear arms) to set as an example. S/he needs to be tried on a state level and when found guilty needs to stand in front of a firing squad (having been injected with a paralytic agent, so that s/he could not move) of duly elected state militia and shot with rubber bullets until s/he begs for forgiveness of his/her failed constituents. Then deported from the state of his/her election and exiled for LIFE.

        1. Peter Lewis of Progressive Insurance, and George Soros both fund the ACLU in their fight against America. I’d be willing to bet if hundreds or even thousands of Americans surrounded this Memorial, and especially if they were armed, as is their Right, that the Cross would stay up…

    2. No. That phrase does NOT appear ANYWHERE on that august document. Nor does it appear ANYWHERE in the American Bill of Rights.

  2. The liberal mind interprets the Constitution completely differently then we do. They will say that WE are interpreting it incorrectly.

  3. You guys just love your slippery slop arguments, don’t you. Considering you obviously can’t grasp the difference between the two things. This is first I’ve heard of grave markers, typically their slippery slope argument is roadside markers, which show even more ignorance by the fact they just don’t get what the issue is. Of course they think it’s thier religion, when in fact which religion it is doesn’t matter. But those who do think it’s about religion, I guarantee would be the first heads to explode if the government builth a monument for Islam. It’s about tax payers dollars. True, the constitution doesn’t mention seperations, but according to thw Supreme Court: Jefferson’s comments “may be accepted almost as an authoritative declaration of the scope and effect of the [First] Amendment.” That was in regards to a letter Jefderson sent to the Danbury Baptist Association.

    As for grave markers are concerned, can you not grasp the difference between those and a public monument? A grave marker is a representation of one’s personal beliefs, not those of the state.
