    Cross can stay, Supreme Court rules...

    Good...

    Peace Cross can stay, Supreme Court rules

    The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Bladensburg’s beloved World War I memorial cross can remain on public lands, rejecting a challenge that it was an illegal entanglement of state and religion.

    The court, in a 7-2 decision, ruled that while the cross is a Christian symbol, the one in Bladensburg has “special significance” as a war memorial and expression of the community’s grief at its lost sons.

    Justice Samuel A. Alito said that removing it, at this point, would actually be seen as “hostility” toward religion.

    “The Religion Clauses of the Constitution aim to foster a society in which people of all beliefs can live together harmoniously, and the presence of the Bladensburg Cross on the land where it has stood for so many years is fully consistent with that aim,” he wrote.

    It was still 7-2 which was surprising...
