THE WAR ON THE CROSS

There is a war being waged against a major symbol of Christianity – the cross.

In 1925, a large cross was erected in Bladensburg, Maryland, to honor fallen soldiers of World War I. But now that cross is being challenged by a lawsuit from the American Humanist Association. It lost its 2014 lawsuit against it, but it is appealing the case.

Last week, there was a bipartisan effort among members of Congress to save the Bladensburg cross. They filed a friend of the court brief to support this memorial.

First Liberty Institute is instrumental in the fight to save the cross from being demolished. It has been leading the charge in fighting these kinds of cases.

First Liberty Institute’s founder and president is Kelly Shackelford, who said, “In a time when America is divided over many issues, there is one thing members of the House and Senate, both Democratic and Republican, have agreed on, along with 90 percent of the American public – our veterans memorials should be protected. We must always strive to honor the selfless sacrifice of our fallen heroes.”
