Casual Friday

Mt. Soledad Memorial Park, San Diego, California

A couple weeks ago, the United States Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal in the case of Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America v. City of San Diego. The case was about the cross you see above, which stands at Mt. Soledad and has been incorporated into a war memorial at that site. There has been a cross there since 1913 (actually, three different crosses -- the first two got stolen, burned, and blown down). The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last year that the cross, standing on federal land, violates the separation of church and state.

Got a photo, link, or other item that you think would be great for Casual Friday? Send it to us!
