Why was the Mojave desert cross stolen?

Are some individuals so desparate and threatened by a cross in a desert? One that has been there for years and years.There was controversy over wheather the cross should remain in place or not.The SC recently ruled that the cross would remain.Now it has been unbolted and stolen.I am hardly liking things going on in our country as of late.This incident being one of them,along with this idea that somehow our American flag is ever offensive on our own soil.

  • I agree with you, tn. There will be another one put up, if they do not recover the original soon. This just the latest example of how the far left can't deal when something doesn't go their way. They are no better than a group of spoiled preschoolers.

  • Why? My guess is because some don't like the fact that religion prevailed in the Supreme Court and they chose to behave like immature criminals and steal property.

  • I am going to bet that even if that cross is not recovered another will take it's place.The new one will not be as easy to remove either.So really it was pointless.

  • Not a fan of crime of any kind. Hope they recover the cross.

     How do you know it was the "far left" that perpetrated the crime?

    A couple of months ago it likely  would have blamed on a fundamentalist....Always looking to point the finger.

  • You're right. Because atheist billboards don't EVER get vandalized. *eye roll* There are idiots on both sides. Don't try and make it out like your side doesn't have the wing nuts too.

  • This is a Memorial for Veterans of Wars. So....why can't they build a Memorial that has nothing to do with Religions?

  • Another one will be put up.

    Funny thing is that this cross really is in the middle of NOWHERE out in the Mojave. And it was still covered with a box at the time...the Supreme Court ruling really only told the lower court to go back and look at the conditions of the land transfer again. The park service was reviewing the ruling.

    The thieves took the box off over the weekend. Workers went to replace it and found the whole cross missing.

    One theory is that metal thieves were after it...but that's an awful long way to go for a little bit of metal.
