Symbols are powerful things. Words are symbols that paint a picture in our mind. They can lift up or tear down, they justify and they condemn. They tell the story.
The 43-foot-high white concrete cross on Mount Soledad overlooking San Diego is a symbol with myriad meaning. Because this monument is on federal land, and because of the idea of “separation of church and state,” it has been condemned to the wrecking ball and will be demolished unless redeemed or reprieved. This symbolism opens to question all crosses on all government property, including cemeteries. It opens to question anything that refers to Jesus of Nazareth, including words.
Our nation is being systematically and progressively dismantled. We crumble as we speak. The Mount Soledad cross couldn’t be any more portentous and/or prophetic then the fall of the Twin Towers by crazed Muslim homicidal bombers. The crazed rulers of this world are hellbent on the demise of Israel and the U.S., but it is not within their power to accomplish.
However, it is within the power of these fools and petty tyrants to lie and murder, And it wouldn’t be surprising to see in the near future a much taller replacement for the Mt. Soledad cross in the form of a flag pole with a huge banner paying tribute to American phallicism and Planned Parenthood Inc.’s child sacrifice of 63 million aborted babies.
There is a judgment for this, cross or no cross.
