*Breaking-Supremes Debating Mojave Cross Case

Today the US Supreme Court is hearing arguments regarding a war memorial cross in a remote area of the Mojave Desert due to a complaint of one man who doesn't even live in the area of the "offensive" cross. He lives in Oregon. The first to report the news from the court is Concerned Women of America, and their press release is below.

The Court and The Cross

Supreme Court to decide fate of Veterans' Cross in Mojave Desert
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7 /Christian Newswire/-Today the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments in Salazar vs. Buono, better known as the Mojave Desert Cross case. World War I veterans erected a cross 75 years ago on land that was open range to honor those who had died serving America in the war. In 1994, the Clinton Administration federalized the land. The ACLU sued to remove the cross, which is literally in a desert and difficult to find, on behalf of a former National Park Service worker who lives in Oregon. The case will impact all "religious displays" on federal land.

Wendy Wright, President of Concerned Women for America, stated at a press conference:

"The cross is the most profound symbol of the most humble act of service-to lay down one's life for another. It was veterans who chose the cross to symbolize the service of their brothers and sisters in the military who laid down their lives to keep our country free.
