The ever tolerant left strikes again

When the right loses a ten commandment ruling the monument gets moved or put on private land. When the left loses a ruling on the placement of a cross, they tear it down.

The 76-year-old Mojave Cross war memorial in San Bernardino County’s High Desert has been torn down by vandals, just days after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the religious symbol could remain — at least temporarily — on public land.

Sometime Sunday night, the cross was taken down from its perch atop Sunrise Rock in the Mojave National Preserve, according to Liberty Institute, a group that represented veterans groups and caretakers of the cross in the recent Supreme Court Case.

“This is an outrage, akin to desecrating people’s graves,” said institute president Kelly Shackelford. “It’s a disgraceful attack on the selfless sacrifice of our veterans. We will not rest until this memorial is re-installed.”

You know if unbelievers didn’t actually believe that God existed a cross would just be two sticks on over the other and it wouldn’t bother them. The fact that it drives them into such a rage suggests the line from Screwtape about people who’ve walked away from God being bothered by any reminder of him.

In fairness there is always the chance that someone else might have nicked the cross. If it turns out I’m wrong I’ll certainly highlight it prominently.

  1. For Christians, the cross is a religious symbol, but Christ is not the only person on the planet to have been crucified. Just a reminder to lefties: for the large part of human history, normal punishments (not even “cruel and unusual”) were horrible: drawing and quartering, tarring and feathering, chopped off hands, hanging, firing squads, and, yes, crucifying someone. The death is horrible: you finally die not from blood loss, but from suffocating as your chest muscles give out (from having supported your body for, usually, two or three days at that point) and you can’t push air in and out of your lungs.

    Just saying.
