It was the center of a long court battle which was settled just two weeks ago when the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the cross could stay. Now it has been cut down and removed by liberal vandals:
The 6-foot-tall metal structure was removed Sunday night from Sunrise Rock in a lonely stretch of the Mojave National Preserve, said government officials and veterans groups that have been fighting for years to keep the cross on national park land.
The National Park Service said it is investigating the incident; no arrests had been made as of Tuesday morning.
The high court on April 28 ruled the cross did not violate the constitutional separation of church and state. The American Civil Liberties Union, which had brought the original lawsuit to have the cross removed, promised to continue the court fight.
So, Supreme Court rules against them and vandals take the law into their own hands. Who is the anti-government protester now?
But fear not, I’m sure Frank Rich will write a column explaining how this sort of vandalism represents a threat to American and civilization in general. Any day now…
