Cruciphobia at Mt. Soledad: The Cross the Left Can't Bear

Michelle Malkin

Consider this: Taylor Swift wasn't even born yet when the fight over the Mount Soledad cross began. How much longer will it drag on? Disgruntled atheists first filed suit over the memorial at a veterans park in San Diego in the summer of 1989. The fringe grievance-mongers have clung bitterly to their litigious activities for nearly a quarter-century. It's time to let go and bring peace to the city.

The historic 43-foot cross has stood atop Mount Soledad on public land since 1954. The Mount Soledad Memorial Association erected the monument to commemorate the sacrifice of American soldiers who died in the Korean War, World War I and World War II. The cross has long carried meaning for the city's residents far beyond religious symbolism. "It's a symbol of coming of age and of remembrance," Pastor Mark Slomka of the Mount Soledad Presbyterian Church said years ago when the case erupted. The San Diego Union-Tribune editorial board explained that the cross is "much like the Mission San Diego de Alcala and the cross at Presidio Park, both of which also are rooted in Christianity but have come to signify the birth of San Diego." ....

But still the cross-hunters press on. Fast-forward to Christmas week 2013. U.S. District Court Judge Larry Burns, who earlier had ruled in support of the cross, was forced to rule that it must come down in 90 days in the wake of a liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision overturning his prior decision. In anticipation of new appeals, Burns stayed the order. All eyes are on the U.S. Supreme Court, which refused to hear the case last summer.

Hey when Jesus comes back and sees all these crosses, he will most likely freak out and turn into a blubbering baby. One experience on a cross is enough.

What do you think? Talk amongst yourselves.

Atheists should be rounded up and turned into pet food. It would be the very first time they were relevant.

Say 8:20. What makes you think that you are relevant ?

8:20 is a genocidalist or at least a would-be mass-murderer, so no better than the Nazis. Though God's prophet, Moses, did quite a good job as one.

Why are religious folks so keen on the subject of death and martyrdom, punishment, masochism and sadism?! Very Freudian!

That's a really dumb comment, 8:20. I feel sorry for them because this life is the best it's ever going to be for them. Why would anyone want to make their best be any worse?

Luke's presumed afterlife may be an eternity in Hell, according to his own beliefs, tho' he probably thinks he has a guaranteed place in Paradise, because he belongs to the right Club.
For atheists, Hell is just other people such as bigoted Christians.

More crocodile tears from the self-righteous Pharisee abusing the name Luke.

Well, I was obviously playing on the "(ab)Use the Name Luke" not the other not quite so warm-hearted Luke. Sorry to be so gutlessly unclear with your confusing names. Guess it's better to be anon afterall.
