    Interesting article. If they run a flag up it to see if anyone salutes, they might have a prayer.

    See the fence? Just lease that small square to a private organization at a buck a year. Now it’s “private” property" and the problem is solved.

    A Festivus pole should be built right next to it.

    I agree that the case you cited is an egregious example of the fact that we have a legal system, but not a justice system. There are legions of incredibly stupid decisions that we can bring up here.

    The judicial system couldn’t have gotten any more insane when 5 male judges decided that corporations are people.

    It’s good that we can agree that the judicial system needs sanity. A first step.

    What would happen if someone erected a Muslim crescent on federally-owned land? Would the same people who are now saying we should “just get over” the Christian cross be equally as willing to say the same thing about the crescent?

    I am not attempting to create an argument; I am asking a legitimate question, and invite those who feel this cross is a non-issue to honestly answer it.

    1. Moving the cross to “non-government” land at the nearby church IS the best solution.
    2. Cemeteries have log banned Wiccan symbols..
    3. At a “monument” on the mohave, a cross was demanded by VFW to remain, but they demanded a Buddhist stele be removed! VFW also mandates that to join you must sign an oath that you believe in “God”, as in the God of Abraham which Jews, Christians, AND Muslims, all worship. I didn’t join, because as a Buddhist, it would be hypocritical to sign said “pledge”.

    Private land, do what you want. Government cemeteries DO still have crosses on Christians’ headstones, and the Star of David on Jewish ones, and I believe they finally approved Wiccan symbols after years of suits. The difference is this cross is a huge MONUMENT standing over the graves of NON-Christians, and sorry, offensive to their faiths.

    Are there non-christians buried there, too? If so, then the cross is implicitly discriminatory by honoring only Christians.

    I’d go with a large sculpture of a rifle and a pair of boots as is done these days. (The helmet on the rifle works for Army & Marines, not so much for Navy and AF, even though some in each do wear helmets. More than a cross or star of david or crescent of islam, the boots and rifle symbolize that these were military dead. However, this is not to say that individual grave markers could not bear a cross, etc. That’s personal.

    Maybe an eagle with arrows and olive branch. Not all vets served in wartime.

    People should realize that the cross was a symbol of a terrible death, reserved for slaves for the most part. And while there was still slavery in Rome, the cross was not the symbol of Christian faith it is now. A shattered cross would be a better symbol for those who have fought for freedom.
