Who Stole the Mojave Cross, Atheists or Right-Wing Nuts?

After all of the debate, intense legal work, and a defeat at the hands of religious conservatives who don't believe in the American Constitution, the controversial Mojave Cross was stolen!

Last week we had to listen to the idiotic Rush Limbaugh theorize that the BP oil spill was a left-wing conspiracy to destroy the environment so that they could get their left-wing environmental agenda through Congress. Now the shoe is on the other foot. At a meeting of secularists last night (more about that in a separate blog), several people told me they thought "right wingnuts" stole the cross to make atheists look bad!

Is everything fair in love and war? Is this a war? I hope not. I'd like to think we are a nation of laws, and that while we might disagree strongly about what the law should be and how it should be interpreted, at the end of the day we all obey the law of the land.

I vehemently disagree with the Supreme Court's "logic," which Justice Anthony M. Kennedy defended by saying the 1st Amendment calls for a "policy of accommodation" toward religious displays on public land rather than requiring a strict separation of church and state. If you ask me, that's pure political BS.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...
Do you see anything in there about "accomodation"? Do you see any exceptions to the words "no law."?

Now it's water under the bridge. They ruled, the Constitution and the American people lost, so now we wait for the next battle. But who stole the cross? And why?

I find myself in an awkward place. I think Rush Limbaugh was despicable for suggesting that left-wing environmentalist were behind the BP oil spill ... and yet ... to be honest, I really won't be surprised if the police catch the thieves who stole the Mojave cross and they turn out to be "right wingnuts" who conspired to make atheists look bad! Does that make me a paranoid conspiracy theory guy?

  2. Wow, you are quite the character. Although I don't at all agree, I can at least see your point on everything except for the "right wingnuts" stealing the cross, which is exactly what a left wing moron would think. The simple fact that you're forgetting is that this cross wasn't erected to show everyone that Christianity is the one true religion or something. It was erected to honor fallen heroes from WWI.....how can someone demand it to be torn down?
    Also, something you may want to consider is how unfair it is to demand that the world completely hides anything religious for the sake of offending atheists.....that seems kind of selfish doesn't it? I mean, how fragile are you if you can't handle a cross here and there and, God forbid, the word "God" anywhere? Christians put up with a lot of crap from atheists and left wing morons pretty much defecating on our beliefs, but do we go cry to everyone about how are feelings are hurt? Nope... Get over it.....

  3. Right, Anon, you poor Christians, always the underdogs. Really...

    Here's a little food for thought. Who is really the persecuted minority in America?

    Not Christians, that's for sure. Your posting is a perfect example of the "Underdog Meme" that I wrote a whole chapter about in my book. It's one of the best tricks of Christianity. Persecute others, then claim to be the victims.
