David French: Attacks on memorial crosses multiply

    David French at National Review: “Unless, of course, you’re an offended atheist. Then, the same pop culture that mocks Christian sensibilities will treat seriously your utterly vile outrage at a mourning mother’s expression of love for her fallen son. Then, that means the same federal courts that have consistently held that outrage alone does not constitute a recognizable injury will grant ‘offended observers’ special status to challenge displays of perceived religious symbols on public land. In other words, an atheist’s subjective discomfort is sufficient grounds for a federal lawsuit.” | See the Alliance Alert’s “Monuments” for more.

MD: Middleboro could face lawsuit over cross on public

    Taunton Gazette: For experts on the United States Constitution, the addition of a 7-foot Christian cross to Middleboro’s town meeting agenda Monday night means one thing – more division. The town, deciding the fate of a cross that has stood for a half-century on a Route 28 traffic island, voted overwhelmingly to try and protect the brick structure. Voters did so by moving the land into private hands, thereby avoiding the constitutional mandate that church and state be separate.
