While Christians support the right of others to believe what they want, but atheists want to force their view on others.
They want to use the government to oppress Christians at every chance they can.
But now Christians are rejoicing after the Supreme Court delivered their biggest blow to atheists yet.
The latest battle for radical atheists is against Christian monuments.
And in that fight, they began targeting a massive cross honoring World War I veterans located in Maryland.
They were able to secure a court to order for it to be taken down, due to it being on public land.
But before they could act on it, the Supreme Court smacked them with a 7-2 ruling ordering that the monument remain in place.
Every Supreme Court Justice besides Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor agreed with the decision.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
The Supreme Court gave its blessing to a cross that a Maryland community erected in remembrance of U.S. servicemembers.
On Thursday, the High Court ruled 7-2 that the state of Maryland and the American Legion can leave up the Bladensburg Cross, a Prince George’s County monument commemorating the 49 locals who died in the First World War. Associate Justice Samuel Alito, writing for the majority, rejected arguments from the American Humanist Alliance that the cross constitutes an endorsement of religion. He said it reflected the community’s remembrance of fallen soldiers, as do the plain white crosses and Stars of David that marked their graves overseas.
“The Bladensburg Cross does not violate the Establishment Clause. The image of the simple wooden cross that originally marked the graves of American soldiers killed in World War I became a symbol of their sacrifice,” Alito wrote. “Destroying or defacing the Cross would not be neutral and would not further the ideals of respect and tolerance embodied in the First Amendment.”
This is a massive win for both Christians and anyone else who supports America’s brave veterans.
The cross has been in place for nearly 100 years, and never caused any problems.
And now it will remain that way.
