Americans United Leads Religious and Civil Rights Groups to Urge Supreme Court to Honor All Veterans by Affirming Bladensburg Cross is Unconstitutional
“Our service members made the ultimate sacrifice to our nation. Our government must treat them equally and honor them equally,” said Rachel Laser, president and CEO of Americans United. “The cross is an inherently Christian symbol. And this cross towering over a community allegedly to commemorate all veterans excludes and dishonors the sacrifices made by thousands of non-Christian veterans."
