Victory for Mt Soledad Cross
via Stop the ACLU
The House voted by an overwhelming majority for a bill that seeks to acquire the land where Mt. Soledad Cross stands and keep the war memorial in place. The final vote was 349 to 74. All 74 nay votes were from democrats. The bill will now go to the Senate and will be introduced by Rep. Jeff Sessions.
While the current court cases trying to bring the cross down will continue, from my understanding this legislation could make them moot. The current cases are being argued on the state constitution and if the federal government steps in and acquires the land it would override any verdict on the current argument. Of course we expect this isn’t near the end of the road. I’m sure the ACLU will file a suit to challenge the constitutionality of the legislation if it passes.
