symbol of hate in this Los Angeles
The people who say they hate hate
hate more than the ones who just hate.
And their hate for the cross
is their pride, to their loss.
Their hate for God’s love seals their fate.
In a ruling released on April 7, Judge Christina A. Snyder of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California stated that a representation of the historic San Gabriel Mission topped by a tiny cross that was included in the Los Angeles County seal violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, asserting that a “reasonable, objective observer” would see a sectarian purpose in having the cross on the seal, regardless of the official explanation.
The first amendment to the U.S. Constitution states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
The way I read the constitution it is even more wrong to deny or change history. It was the Mission that founded Los Angeles. And if the Mission is offensive and unconstitutional, what about the name Los Angeles (angels)?
