Supremes: “Peace Cross” can remain

A 40-foot-tall cross will remain standing in Bladensburg, Maryland, after the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 that government funding for the monument does not unlawfully privilege the Christian faith.The so-called “Peace Cross,” a memorial to lives lost in World War I, was challenged as a violation of the Constitution’s establishment clause, which prevents the government from privileging one faith group over others.
