Crossed Out

A federal judge in California has ruled that a six-foot cross lording over the Mojave National Preserve in California as a veterans memorial must be taken down because it constitutes an illegal government endorsement of religion, reports the Press-Enterprise.

U.S. District Court Judge Robert J. Timlin of Riverside, Calif., cited decisions by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in determining that the "presence of the cross on federal land conveys a message of endorsement of religion."

The American Civil Liberties Union sued the National Park Service in March 2001, demanding that the cross the removed.

A prospector, John "Riley" Bembry, first raised a cross on the spot in the 1930s in honor of World War I veterans.
