SUPREME COURT TO HEAR BLADENSBURG PEACE CROSS CASE NEXT WEEK

Father, we ask that reason and sound judgment prevail in this case before the U.S. Supreme Court. We pray for Kelly Shackelford who is arguing for religious freedom in this case—bless his preparations and his advocacy. (Ps 57:5)

Upcoming Supreme Court Case February 27, 2019: Listen

The Supreme Court will hear arguments in a highly publicized case from Maryland about the possible demolition of a memorial cross monument on public property….

The dispute is about the Bladensburg Peace Cross. The American Legion and local families paid for the 40-foot-high monument in 1925 as a tribute to 49 veterans. The Maryland cases had been at the Court since [last] June.

The Maryland-National Capital Park petition presented to one question the Supreme Court: “Whether the Establishment Clause requires the removal or destruction of a 93-year-old memorial to American servicemen who died in World War I solely because the memorial bears the shape of a cross.”

The American Legion petition presented two additional questions: Whether the constitutionality of a passive display incorporating religious symbolism should be assessed under the tests articulated in Lemon v. Kurtzman, Van Orden v. Perry, Town of Greece v. Galloway or some other test; and whether, if the test from Lemon v. Kurtzman applies, the expenditure of funds for the routine upkeep and maintenance of a cross-shaped war memorial, without more, amounts to an excessive entanglement with religion in violation of the First Amendment.

The memorial was erected on private property, but a planning commission later acquired the property due to traffic concerns. A split Fourth Circuit federal appeals court ordered the cross’s removal from the current property….

The American Humanist Association believes there isn’t a conflict between the Lemon test used by the Fourth Circuit and the Van Orden decision, and the cross is a religious symbol that dominates its location due to its size. (Excerpts from Scott Bomboy article in Constitution Daily)

  1. I am glad that I am a child of the most high God and that heaven is my home and not earth, God allowed me to be born here in the USA and yes I love my country, but I see that so much of our freedoms are being taken away and no one seems to care, our President is trying to give us some of our freedoms back but he is being so attacked from every side, God is giving us a chance to stand with him or God will say that’s enough and just take his remnant home and the rest shall live through a hell on earth where everything is taken away. I pray that people will pray and stand with our President and God forgive us for not standing with him, forgive us for not seeing he is a man that God is using for His glory and honor and God alone gets the Glory, as long as God has me on this earth I pray for our president, I found a prayer that I think is good for all of us an it goes like this “I want to urge you to continue to pray for our nation, pray for our president and law makers – even if you did not vote them in. It is our duty as believer’s to lift them up before the Lord and come against greed, and lust for power, personal agendas and favoritism and all that is against the Word of God. Pray for the Wisdom of God to be poured out upon them and for the Lord to get hold of their hearts. The devil does not want the church to pray so that he can have his way. But we must take up this charge like never before and deny the enemy the right to move. Decree with me the Word of God and the power of God over this nation, and decree with me that Jesus is Lord over the United States of America.” I decree that in the Name of Jesus THIS A CHRISTIAN NATION.

  2. May the Supreme Court favor the Cross and allow it to stand. Enough of these people who want to tear down our important remembrances of our men who stood for life and liberty. This is OUR United States, this land was dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ, and we do not want our beliefs destroyed.

  3. There is no reason why the cross should be taken down.
    It is an honor of those whop lost their lies defending our nation.
    What is our country turning into that crosses should be destroyed because of just a few people who find it offensive?

  4. The cross was originally on private property given by citizens who wanted it to be a memorial to loved ones. It is like a cemetery cross. This is an unreasonable request to take it down.

  5. Those that want the cross to be torn down, Lord God give them dreams and visions of Jesus on the Cross, that they will understand what the cross is all about in Jesus Name Jesus died on the cross also whether they realize it or not, Let us pray that God will give these men and women a heart of flesh and take away their stony hearts. That they have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ Amen

    1. I agree. It was paid for by the American Legion members as a Memorial to those 49 services who lost their lives in WWI. If people are offended, too bad! It’s a war memorial get over it!

  6. I pray that righteousness will prevail and the Cross will stand in the very place it was build and will continue to be seen touching the sky.
    I live in Texas but I am from Fredrick, Maryland. God ‘s will will be done!!

  7. I decree and the declare in the Name of Jesus and His Blood it will not be taken down. The gates of hell shall no prevail against it.

  8. el monumeto para recordar a nuestros caido debe permacer ahi, para no olvidar a los que murieron para proteger nuestra libertad.
    Este memorail es un simbolo de nuestra libertad de expresion,m lo que hace a esta nacion grande.
    Que Dios guia a nuestros jueces es mi oracion.

  9. I believe it should remain standing, enough is enough lets stand up for our Christian rights,they took GOd out of our schools and we did nothing we have to stop these travesties from happening not later but NOW

  10. No belief system or opinions are neutral.
    Those who want to remove it are being “religious” too, when they insist I believe them.

    1. Amen – time to shout this out!

      Each group with its own agenda holds its views “religiously” and is therefore its own religion.

    2. I agree! They want to destroy our belief! We are in the midst of a ‘Spiritual War’, one God has already won! But we are called to STAND for our BELIEF in GOD…and STAND WE MUST! or lose the gift of this nation and our freedom!

  11. There are unseen forces in our country that want to tear down everything that represents our God. It is an antichrist spirit that prevails over our society today that will.not win this spiritual war we are iin. Every knee shall bow and tongue confess Jesus is Lord. Keep praying church. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in pulling down strongholds

    1. Yes, Church get out of yourselves, and get on your face before the Lord and Repent for not serving the Lord and get serious before Him and pray for this nation and for our President, that God has given us. Party time is over, turn our Sunday services into hours of prayer and Repentance before the Lord Plead protection over our nation open our eyes to see the time we are in and do not let the devil tear this nation down. Jesus already defeated him, let us keep him defeated in the Name of Jesus.

  12. I believe the monument should remain standing. Arlington Cemetery has hundreds of crosses on government property
    marking the graves of many who served our country in time of war.

  13. Our World War One Memorial should remain. Our history is important. God Bless and honor all of our heros!!!! The Cross is a wonderful symbol to remain in their honor.

  14. I have a difficult time understanding why we continually have to tear down our monuments. This one is for us to remember the men who died fighting for our freedom in WW1. I have been praying for months that the Memorial will stand where it is. God help us if this memorial gets torn down.
