Why the Supreme Court’s Peace Cross Memorial Decision was a Decisive Victory – and What Happens Next
The United States Supreme Court recently came down with a major decision in favor of religious freedom by ruling that a World War I Veterans Memorial in the shape of a 40 foot cross, that has stood for nearly 100 years, can remain on public land after an atheist group sought its removal.
This decision has created wide-spread discussion on religious liberty and what the effect of this decision will be moving forward.
Travis Weber, Vice President for Policy and Director of the Center for Religious Liberty at Family Research Council, which filed an amicus brief in support of the constitutionality of the cross in The American Legion v. American Humanist Association, joins this week’s program to breakdown the Supreme Court’s decision and explain what it means for religious freedom.
