Mojave Desert Cross Returned and Rededicated to WWI Veterans
Fox News ^ | unknown

Posted on 11/11/2012 9:48:24 PM PST by Jay777

A cross honoring those who died in World War I was returned after being stolen two years ago. Fox News reporter Dominic Di-Natale reported from Barstow, California where a rededication ceremony was taking place for the Mojave Desert cross. It was originally raised in 1934 and was at the center of a national controversy over the separation of church and state.

The objections over the cross being place on public land went all the way to the Supreme Court. The cross was hidden from the public and eventually stolen in a nighttime heist but returned about a week ago. The one raised in the ceremony today was the replacement that had been made, but as Di-Natale reports, for veterans it is really about the meaning behind the Mojave Desert cross.

Pray for The Holy Trinity’s victory over Evil, embodied in atheists, leftists, Islamists, the ACLU, and other misguided souls.

Have to fight to win. We have remained complacent too long in the face of their aggression.

Finally some GOOD NEWS !

its nearby, maybe I can ride over there and check it out

the big news is that the super reams allowed it to stand

if theres any bad news about it, its that there are no arrests

whether someones offended or not , it did earn historical significance and deserves respect.

Atheists are free to worship nothing on the tens of thousands of other rockpiles in the area and ignore this one all they want

Patrolling the Mojave almost makes you wish for a Nuclear Winter!

I visited that place in New Vegas.

Agree, we must join the battle on all fronts. That includes gaining permanent control of institutions that have been poisoning minds for generations — public schools, academia, media, govt bureaucracies, churches, temples. It will take generations to win; willpower, firepower, staying power.

One of the institutions to concentrate on is the public schools. The voters continue to fund them despite their evident failures. In my state, the parents are more interested in football than in classroom results, and in test scores rather than what students learn.

I was down that way in August and the cross was there ... had it been taken down since then? If it has, I hope they get it back too. At least the one on Mt. Helix is still safe.
