Cross in Mojave Desert honoring American war dead stolen

AP: “Thieves have stolen a cross in the Mojave Desert that honored American war dead, less than two weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the religious symbol to remain on federal land . . . The cross had been covered with plywood while the U.S. Supreme Court decided the case but vandals tore off the cover over the weekend . . . ”

“This is an outrage, akin to desecrating people’s graves,” said Kelly Shackelford, president of the Liberty [Legal] Institute, which represents the caretakers of the Mojave Desert War Memorial. “It’s a disgraceful attack on the selfless sacrifice of our veterans. We will not rest until this memorial is re-installed.”
