Take down the cross
In 1954 the city of San Diego erected a 20 ton cross on top of Mount Soledad, which is city property. The cross was a memorial to soldiers who were killed in the Korean war. Obviously the city fathers of the day thought that only Christians died in Korea, which, if that were the case, indicates that the Christian deity did a poor job of protecting his own.
The cross is 29 feet tall and is maintained by the city with taxpayer funds on land which is owned by the taxpayers as well. For 17 years the city has attempted to keep up this subsidy to the Christian religion. They were told long ago that the cross needed to be removed and they have tried underhanded and sneaky legal tactics to avoid obeying the Constitution. In one case they tried to sell the spot of land directly under the cross to a non-profit group that would keep the cross up. All the surrounding land would still be owned by the city.
Now a judge has told he city that they have 90 days to remove the city or face a $5,000 day fine. The Republican run city, like the Republican run nation, is facing a financial crisis and can not really afford this fine. The city attorney has said that going back to court is futile but Mayor Jerry Saunders is oblvious to reality and says that they will continue to try new legal measures in order to keep up the subsidy.
