Federal Court Rules Cross Unconstitutional

Here we go again.

The radically liberal 9th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals has overturned a lower court and found that a San Diego war memorial, shaped in the form of a cross, is unconstitutional, simply because it is on public land...which would constitute a government endorsement of religion.

Really?  Just curious, but does anyone really believe our government "endorses" religion?  How could a government that sanctions the killing of a million or so unborn babies every year be said to "endorse" religion...? (READ MORE)

Pro-family and conservative organizations around America are touting their roles in gaining a 2-year extension of President George W. Bush's 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, which provide great benefits for American families.  The tax cut extensions were passed during the infamous "lame-duck" session of the expiring Democrat-controlled 111th Congress
