2019, Peace Cross honoring Christian soldiers is offending and unconstitutional

For almost a century, the Bladensburg Cross, Washington, has been the symbol of courage at the loss of the young men who gave their lives to fight for peace. The American Legion built it in 1925 to honor 49 local men who died serving in World War I. In 2012, some residents sued authorities because they were offended by the government’s endorsement of religion using taxpayer money to maintain it.

In June 2019, the Supreme Court on a 7-2 decision ruled it does not violate the Constitution. Although the cross has its roots in Christianity, it is marked “indisputably secular,” similar to trademarks of companies like Blue Cross and Bayer. Atheist Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the most outspoken against it.
