Yesterday, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Mount Soledad memorial cross was an unconstitutional government endorsement of religion … and the Family Research Council has responded by comparing the ruling to the Taliban blowing up statutes of Buddah:
“In 2001, when militants set out to bomb two colossal Buddhist statues that had stood untouched in Afghanistan for more than a thousand years, the global community rightly condemned the actions as religious barbarism. Like the statues, the Mt. Soledad Cross is a monument to America ‘s cultural history, a symbol of our Christian heritage and a tribute to brave Americans who laid down their lives in our nation’s cause. Their memories should not be besmirched.
