The American Legion v The American Humanist Association (a/k/a The Bladensburg Cross)
The Supreme Court will hear the Bladensburg Cross case after the 4th Circuit ruled that public expenditures to maintain the monument violated the 1st Amendment prohibition against the establishment of religion by the Government. It is always a touchy subject, and the debates are always passionate. From Bladensburg to San Diego, the debate rages as to what exactly constitutes "establishment" and whether or not the long history of various monuments has any sway in the question of the monuments status.
Like most things, it's not as simple as it seems. Nor is the hyperbole - on both sides - helping to sort through the real issues.
