In the Supreme Court, the Trump administration has taken up the defense of a monumental cross that an association for the defense of secularism wishes to have removed in the name of the First Amendment.
Inaugurated in 1925, the Peace Cross in Bladensburg, MD, stands 40 feet high and honors the memory of 49 American soldiers killed in action during World War I.
It is located on public property and financed by the State, which is why the American Humanist Association wishes it to disappear.
President Donald Trump’s administration disagrees: “Removing or destroying the monument could be perceived as the act of a government that is not neutral but hostile to religion,” declared the Department of Justice in a document sent last November to the Supreme Court that will hand down its decision in 2019.
It is no surprise the American Humanist Association has made the disappearance of the cross its new hobbyhorse; the association’s motto Good without a God is a clear expression of its Masonic intentions.
Is the secularist obscurantism that is working to remove all the Nativity scenes in France about to take over the US? The answer is expected in June 2019.
