Judicial Watch Statement on Supreme Court Ruling; World War I Veterans Memorial Cross Will Remain Standing

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement in response to the Supreme Court of the United States ruling allowing the Bladensburg, MD, Peace Cross to stand:

We applaud the Supreme Court’s ruling. The cross has been used throughout American history to honor our nation’s war dead. The Bladensburg Peace Cross has become synonymous with veteran sacrifice. It was dedicated to the memory of local heroes.

Military sacrifice made possible the guarantee of our constitutional rights. It is the duty of the courts to honor the Constitution as written by the Framers. Today’s decision not only honors those who made the ultimate sacrifice, it is a victory for religious freedom.

Today’s Supreme Court decision is in keeping with a December 2018 Judicial Watch amicus curiae brief that asked court to reverse a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Today’s ruling recognizes that the World War I memorial cross is not in violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of the Constitution.
