A federal judge has ordered the removal of a giant cross atop Mount Soledad in San Diego (“Korean War memorial ordered to take down Christian cross,” Web, Dec. 13). The cross has been in place for almost 60 years and was erected to honor Christian Korean War veterans. The federal judge’s decision is the result of a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union representing the Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America.
I’m sure that some of the Christian Korean War veterans being honored by that cross were the same men who liberated the death camps in Germany, where millions of Jews were being killed during World War II. One has to ask whether all Jewish war veterans are in favor of removing a cross that has been in place for almost 60 years — or whether it is just some who are being manipulated by an organization to further its agenda.
Some don’t like to hear this next fact, but Christians make up about 70 percent of the United States’ religious population. With that in mind, why are municipal and federal court judges ruling in favor of attacks against Christianity?
