Supreme Court allows Mojave war memorial cross

Apr 29, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
It narrowly rules that the 1st Amendment calls for a middle-ground ‘policy of accommodation’ toward religious displays on public land, not a total ban on symbols of faith.

In a shift away from strict church-state separation, the Supreme Court gave its approval Wednesday to displaying a Christian cross on government land to honor the war dead, saying the Constitution "does not require the eradication of all religious symbols in the public realm."
