The Anti-Defamation League announced Thursday they found it "deeply disappointing" that the Supreme Court decided not to tear down a nearly 100-year-old memorial cross in Bladensburg, Maryland honoring soldiers who died in World War I.
ADL Director Jonathan Greenblatt wrote in a statement:
We are alarmed that the Supreme Court has allowed a 40-foot memorial cross to remain on government property in Maryland. As Justice Ginsburg wrote in dissent, ‘the principal symbol of Christianity around the world should not look over public thoroughfares, suggesting official recognition of that religion’s paramountcy.’The ADL said they filed an amicus brief in favor of taking the statue down, which they suggested was done to "protect religious liberty":
In January 2019, ADL joined a broad coalition of religious and civil rights organizations in filing an amicus brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to find that the cross on government property violates the constitutionally mandated separation of church and state.Nothing says "protecting religious liberty" quite like tearing Christian statues honoring America's war dead down!
