Defend the Bladensburg WWI Memorial Cross

For nearly 90 years, a World War I memorial cross has honored our nation’s bravest heroes.

Now, atheists are suing to tear down this historic war monument in Maryland – the Bladensburg Cross.

Atheists have taken aim at the memorial, saying they are “shocked” and “upset” that a cross could honor fallen veterans.

These claims are absolutely ridiculous.

To allow atheists who are “upset” about the cross to tear it down would dishonor our veterans. Those who fought valiantly for our nation a century ago deserve to have their memory cherished by their memorial – the Bladensburg Cross.

The ACLJ is preparing a critical amicus brief at the Supreme Court to defend the cross and honor our veterans. Stand with us. Sign on to our brief today.
