At Mount Soledad Yesterday

A few of the SLOBs attended yesterday's rally at the Mount Soledad War Memorial. Thanks to Dean for getting the word out about the event. The key legal question regarding the cross is "Does the cross itself create an impermissible establishment of religion by government." I would argue of course not. No particular religion is being advocated and the cross, through general usage, has become a symbol of sacrifice beyond Christianity. Here are a few pictures from the event.

Band of Brothers: Road Dawg, B-Daddy, and Dean.

  1. I wish we had heard the atheist point of view for keeping the monument.

    Also, I understood the argument not to be "impermissible establishment of religion", but "the government shall show no preference"

    Although I joined the rally, I still had mixed emotions knowing the origin and history of the monument. But we can't chip away at the historical significance of the message of sacrifice and victory represented.

    What a beautiful day!
