The vote was 7-2 for the WWI Peace Cross to stay where it is, with Justices Sotomayor and Ginsburg as the lone dissenters. The court’s ruling says that the cross represents ‘sacrifice’ not religion. The 40-foot Peace Cross is a 94-year-old memorial to honor 49 men who fought and died in WWI. A far left organization brought the case against the cross and won in a lower court. This reverses the lower court’s decision.
US Supreme Court says huge concrete cross can stay on public land; rejects claim that its presence is an unconstitutional government endorsement of religion. https://t.co/Yi3hU1DhVs pic.twitter.com/Lcckn3Gtp2
