Ben Stein: America's Cross -- The ACLU at It Again

By Rick Pearcey • October 19, 2009, 07:55 AM

The secularist ACLU is "suing to take down a cross on a huge public swath of desert in Southern California," writes Ben Stein at American Spectator.  Stein offers a few reasons the cross should stay.

To his reasons, let us add this: Nothing in the Declaration, the U.S. Constitution, nor the Bill of Rights forbids it. What is forbidden in the 1st Amendment is that Congress should make a law in this regard.

The atttempt to impose atheism and secularism upon American society represents a profound, ongoing Constitutional crisis and constitutes a threat to every individual inside our borders.

A free, dignified, and creative people under God, endowed by our Creator with "certain unalienable rights," would do well to rise up and throw off the shackles of this imposition.

Helping the oppressed citizens of the United States break free of this statist addiction to the pretend "God" substitute of the federal government -- exemplified by the negative spirituality of the Obama administration but also so easily given into by squishy Republicans -- is a surefire way to demonstrate respect for our true Creator, not to mention love of neighbor.

The alternative is tyranny, and that's not an alternative.
