Topic: the Supreme Court Ruling on the Cross

The Supreme Court recently ruled that a 40-foot memorial cross in the state of Maryland was not unconstitutional. The cross was built in 1925 to commemorate many soldiers from St. George’s County who died in service to their country in World War I. The American Humanist Association sued to have the cross torn down. The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals (out of Richmond, Virginia) agreed with the AHA, and the cross had a sentence of death hanging over it. First Liberty Institute, which fights for religious liberty (including a lot of military memorial type cases), fought to save the cross, on behalf of the American Legion. The SCOTUS made their decision, 7-2. Jeremy Dys, a key attorney at First Liberty, joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss this June 20, 2019 decision. www.firstliberty.org
