Pray that the Supreme Court takes this case and reverses the Fourth Circuit ruling.
The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me. (Ps 16:6)
The case involves the Bladensburg Peace Cross, a memorial to area men who died in the First World War. It has stood since 1925 without bothering anyone until in 2014 the American Humanist Association felt that the monument violates the Constitution’s establishment clause. The district judge tossed the case, holding that the tiny amount of government money that is spent on upkeep does not endorse religion. The Fourth Circuit held 2-1 that this offends the First Amendment. On the petition for rehearing en banc the court declined by 8-6.
