Teach your children about the San Diego cross battle

Saturday, January 8, 2011, 9:42 am |

Why is the “take down the cross” ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals so wrong?

Because federal judges must follow the WRITTEN Constitution, which says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” Thus, the Constitution prohibits the United States government creating an official denomination (such as the Church of England, which had the king at its head). However, the framers wrote that the federal government must never trample the “free exercise” of any religious denomination (religion) — that is, religious speech, expression, action, or activity that is non-violent.

Despite the very bad ruling on January 4, the Mt. Soledad Cross in La Jolla is staying up pending appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Yet now is your opportunity to teach children and share with young adults the religious freedom and public expressions of faith guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Because if you don’t tell them the truth, liberal teachers in schools, colleges, the media, and culture will certainly teach them lies and myths.
