Is The Mount Soledad Cross Unconstitutional Or A Tribute To Veterans

Is The Mount Soledad Cross Unconstitutional Or A Tribute To Veterans

Anyone who has driven up Mount Soledad in La Jolla has seen the huge cross that has become the center of debate between the Mount Soledad Memorial Association and opposing groups claiming it infringes on their constitutional rights.

Few people know the origins of this landmark. The current 29 foot cross was erected in 1954 as a memorial to World War I veterans, however earlier incarnations have been there since 1923.

Recently there was a ruling ordering the cross be removed in favor of opposing groups that claim it is an endorsement of Christianity on public land.

Members of the Mount Soledad Memorial Association have appealed the ruling based on the fact that the cross is a tribute to our veterans, along with walkways surrounding the monument bearing photographs of fallen heroes.

No matter where you stand on this issue, anyone who owns a home in the beautiful Mount Soledad area of La Jolla is very familiar with this landmark!
