This burns me up.
The cross has been on Mt. Soledad for quite sometime, it was there before some guy sued to have it taken down and it still stands. I don't know how many of ya'll have been to San Diego, but this cross isn't some huge ugly monster chunked down in the middle of nowhere.. it's a fairly simple yet beautiful cross on hillside. You can't see it from everywhere and half the time if you're not looking for it you'd miss it.
This cross means a lot to people, it's not just some religious thing put there to annoy the non-believers. It has a lot of history to it. It's a war memorial for crying out loud.
I hate that it may have to be torn down to appease the very few people who it offends. For some reason they can't just not look at it.. they have to ruin things for everyone else. It's a shame that this beloved landmark may be taken away.
By the way.. I'm about as far from religious as it gets, if I set foot in a church I'd probably be hit by lightning not once but twice just to make sure the job was done.
I wonder sometimes just what makes people tick.
I fail to see how this cross is hurting anyone. Obviously its been there for awhile.
Hate to have to admit this but Archer is right - people are greedy and don't care how they get what they want.
How in the world did we ever get to this point.
Oh Origam - btw- I doubt lightning would strike you. The Lord is quite forgiving !!!
