The court reached the correct result, but the mish-mash of opinions leaves Establishment Clause jurisprudence in the muddled state it’s been for decades.
Last week, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments about the constitutionality of a 40-foot World War I memorial cross that has stood on public land in Maryland for 94 years.
The Bladensburg WWI memorial battle is insensitive to the memories of those who paid the ultimate price–people who should be honored more, not less.
There is great poignancy in the timing of the Supreme Court’s recent agreement to consider the World War I memorial in Bladensburg, Md. Atheists say all public references to God constitute an illegal mix of church and state.
The court will look at an old World War I monument and decide if allowing people to express their Christian faith on public property is unconstitutional.
Three appeals court judges claim a 90-year-old, cross-shaped memorial honoring those who fought in World War I is unconstitutional. It’s not.
In a dangerous new ruling, a federal court declared that a WWI memorial is unconstitutional because it’s in the shape of a Latin cross.
We forget World War I at our own peril. Whether we know it or not, society continues to experience its aftershocks today.
