The 76-year-old Mojave Cross war memorial in San Bernardino County's High Desert has been torn down by vandals, just days after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the religious symbol could remain -- at least temporarily -- on public land.
Sometime Sunday night, the cross was taken down from its perch atop Sunrise Rock in the Mojave National Preserve, according to Liberty Institute, a group that represented veterans groups and caretakers of the cross in the recent Supreme Court Case.
"This is an outrage, akin to desecrating people's graves," said institute president Kelly Shackelford. "It's a disgraceful attack on the selfless sacrifice of our veterans. We will not rest until this memorial is re-installed."

Gay democrat party terrorists, oops I meant “activists.”
Ah, the tolerance of the left.
Their God-given conscience won’t leave them alone when there are reminders like this in our culture - that’s why they MUST get rid of every reference to the truth.
These people are making Nihilism look good.
They need to make one out of heavy steel.
Watch the fight that mounts when they try to replace it.
More violence conducted by the left.
Find out where Newdow was.
The courts probably won’t let them replace it.
Probably Muslims re-enacting the destruction of the historic Buddhas in Afghanistan.
They are shameless vandals and iconoclasts.
Where was Elen Kagan last night?
Do you think we’ll see hate crime charges applied to those responsible?
Horrible news! I bet they find out who did it, though.
Anyone arrogant and brazen enough to tear down a cross, not to mention such a high-profile one, is going to HAVE to blab to someone about it.
They need to make one out of (electrified) heavy steel.
I doubt it. Wonder if the cops start investigating it, 6 days later. Like in the New Orleans beat down.
Wouldn’t surprise me if the Government gave Special Ops orders to go out and remove it.. with the help of a Blackhawk helicopter.
And electrify it.
Land mines would work also.
I’m betting that they spray painted a message on it................
They will probably have it for sale on eBay or craigslist by tonight. This person should go to federal prison.
How about irradiate it too... Like a Cobalt-60 cross?
Bastards. Bastards, bastards.
Or are they one of several types of ghost-walking or dream-invading demons/vampires(Vandellas) and know Martha?
Gods wrath is nothing to mess with !
Freedom of speech is OK as long as you’re displaying some marxist icon or the crucified Christ in a jar of urine. Bet the White House is enjoying this along with the other socialist asswipes in this country. November can’t get here soon enough.
It should have a couple of automatically operated twin 50s for when anything approaches within a half mile.
and whaddya want to bet that the National Park Service will be conveniently “lacking the funds to rebuild it”??
This is looking to be the most chilling part of Obama’s M.O., like his setbacks on Net Neutrality, Cap n Tax or anything else. He won’t take no for an answer, will just come back and take another run at it from a more devious angle.
They'll get what they have coming.
Time for some vigilante justice ...
P.S. Someone needs to start a website to take donations towards the reward for the arrest, conviction, and assbeating of these government operatives.
It’s like it’s against the law to express religion.
When you finally realize or accept that all vestiges of Christianity and Judaism must be wiped out in order for the agenda currently underway to proceed, then you will have wisdom. That is why there is enmity between the world and Israel, and since most Jews and Christians have resolved the past issues that divided us, Christians are now enemies as well. The Church will leave, the Jews will put it all together and understand the last chapter of their story — salvation came through the Jew. The Jew was to be a light to the world and will be the last to leave and turn out the lights — but only for a time. THEN it’s OUR turn. All paths DO lead to God. The Muslims are right, without Jesus, there will be a scale and marbles, both black and white, will be added for good deeds and bad. Hindus will achieve nothingness. Buddhists will have an eternal bus ride. They WILL get face time with God. We’ll see how it works out for them, for we will judge angels and men. I’m basically a coward. I’m a huge screw-up. I’m relying solely on Jesus. There is no plan B.
Does anyone know what happened to the cross itself? The article says it was “taken down,” but no more. Was it destroyed? Taken away? Burned? Desecrated?
Typical idiot reporter. No obvious bias, but he never learned that readers want to know the FACTS.
It would certainly be nice if the original, historic cross could be restored. But if not, then replaced.
“Horrible news! I bet they find out who did it, though.”
Don’t bet real money on it. They still haven’t found the perp or perps who torched Sarah Palin’s church in December, 2008 while some women and children were inside.
But it’s not like they aren’t trying... /sarc
Hate crimes. Let’s see if the MSM picks this up.
Where’s the outrage ping!
"For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shamewho set their mind on earthly things."
Don’t beg anymore. Just do it.
OMG! EVIL on PARADE!!
0zeros would be all of the hate crime if it were some Muslim symbol that was vandalized. We’d hear about that until the end of days....
Oh thank you for reminding me right off the start today that our the enemies of the cross are enemies of my Blessed Savior.
God Help us !!
Obama reset union recruiting rules to favor union organizers, unchanged for 76 years..
Memorial Cross standing for 76 years torn down..
MMM MMmm mmmm
Bad JuJU will follow those who desecrated this monument.. Bad JuJu.. wouldn’t want to be them..
Not surprised. Hopefully whoever did it will get what is due them and soon.
“The courts probably wont let them replace it.”
The 75-year-old monument was the target of a legal challenge from the ACLU, which charged the cross is a religious symbol that shouldn’t be allowed on public land. The U.S. Supreme Court last month refused to order that it be torn down, as the land had already been sold to private owners.
