Here Are the Facts on the Cross Issue ACLU and activist judge put on ice over Mt. Soledad cross by Supreme Court

Dear George,

In our latest AFA Action Alert, we asked you to take action by encouraging the U.S. Senate to pass legislation protecting the crosses in all federal cemeteries and use Article Three, Section Two to remove jurisdiction from federal judges.

There has been some confusion regarding our Action Alert. Many have been led to believe by outdated material and websites that the ACLU’s efforts are nothing more than a rumor or hoax.

I have said, and maintain, that the ACLU is behind the effort to remove this cross.

Late last Friday, according to CBS News, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy intervened in a 17-year battle over a large cross on city property in San Diego, allowing the 29-foot structure to remain until its supporters complete a legal challenge.

U.S. District Judge Gordon Thompson had ordered the city to remove the structure by Aug. 1 or face a fine of $5,000 a day. Thompson ruled the cross unconstitutional in 1991, but the case has remained in courts and become an issue of public policy.

I urge you to research the facts for yourself. Please take time to view these sources regarding the ACLU and the activist judge who wants the cross removed.

It is only logical that if the cross is removed from the Mt. Soledad Memorial, then the next move by the ACLU would be to remove crosses from all memorials and cemeteries.

Take Action

If you haven’t already, would you please take time to contact your Senators and ask them to pass legislation protecting the crosses (indeed, all religious symbols) in all federal cemeteries and memorials? If the ACLU wins this battle, you can be sure they will pursue removing crosses from national cemeteries everywhere.Please take action to protect our right to have crosses above the graves of those who have given their lives to protect our religious freedom.
