Washington D.C., Apr 28, 2010 / 01:31 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday that a federal court overstepped its boundaries in ordering the removal of a long-standing memorial cross in California's Mojave Desert.

It’s not over, it’s just been remanded for further consideration. I’m sure it will eventually work its way back to the Court, ending in a similar, although more permanent decision, assuming of course the balance of the Court doesn’t change before then.
Next they will want all the crosses removed from Arlington.
Five to our vote. Sanity is hanging on by a thread.
It is good news, but, when I saw this on TV today, I wondered, “How long before some leftist vandalizes it?”
I guess the Wise Latina isn’t
I have no religion but I stand with EVERYONE who fought hard to keep the cross! Very well done!
It’s a very narrow decision, dealing with Congress’s attempt to remedy the problem by selling off the land to a private party. That’s about the only area where it’ll be precedent.
THANK YOU GOD!
About time the good guys won one. Let’s keep the ball rolling. See my tag line.
..vandalizing is one thing...having the government stop you is another.
Oh, I know that. But the Christian haters are really turning up the rhetoric and the violence.
Bump and ping.
