Default Memorial Cross stolen from the Mojavo Dessert

Scrap peddlers looking for steel or an upset liberal(church&state) about the sight of a cross?
It is a memorial about the soldiers who fought for our freedom from the first world war. Looks like a felony to me.
The ACLU was looking to have it removed legally but somebody beat them to it.

probably someone who believes in what the ACLU was saying, and took it too damn far

personally, I am not religous, though I could care less what other people want to believe in. As long as they dont try to force thier beliefs onto me, all is well. I'm not offended in any way by seeing any religous symbol, but in this case, it wasnt exactly a religous symbol. This could have been a star, a big globe, or any other symbol, and it would still have been a memorial for the soldiers. Anyone who saw anything else was blinded by thier own arrogance, IMHO.

I honestly hope another cross is placed there as a memorial to the soldiers, only make it bigger, much bigger. It simply cannot be big enough to make up for what those soldiers gave to this country, and the rest of the world, for that matter.

Hmm, must be a new fad among thieves
35 Memorial Markers(brass & aluminum) were stolen from Veterans Memorial Park in Muskegon just over a week ago.

Hm....Indeed. That'd be a long hall for just one cross though.

I'm with Yota Bill on this one. Except I'm religious, but could care less that it's a cross. It's the fact that they are trying to get rid of something that has a huge amount of meaning to some of the families because one single guy was offended.
