The WWI Veterans Memorial Cross story in the Mohave Desert (short version)
This visit and video was made in 2009:
In 1934, WWI Veterans erected a cross on a hill top out in the middle of nowhere. It was a way of memorializing the deaths of their comrades. This became their place of reunion, solitude and prayer.
However, one man alleges that the cross offended him. He then filed a law suit with the ACLU. Sadly a federal judge ordered this cross to be taken down or concealed until further adjudication. The United States Supreme Court has just agreed to hear the case. In the meantime, the cross is covered with plywood. The cross is appropriate on Government land, because America was founded on Judeo Christian principles.
With no apologies we support our veterans. Moreover, we support the cross. We took a trip to the Mohave desert to see for ourselves. We had church, praise music, and communion. Below is a video of our visit. We there before the U.S. Supreme Courts made their decision. The updates of this legal battle are in the below the comments.
