Monday, July 24, 2006 | I find it interesting that the cross on Mount Soledad is called a cross (which is what it is) at times and other times it is called a War Memorial. It would seem that the supporters of the cross occasionally forget that their supposed to call it a War Memorial and call it what it is a cross. Even their bumper stickers say “Save the Cross.” Well what is it? Having lived in San Diego for thirty years, I can tell you that it was never called anything but the “Cross at Mount Soledad” until the law suit was filed. Then in typical right-wing fashion they spun it around and now call it a “War Memorial” because who can argue against a war memorial. Yet the majority of people still call it a cross. Gee, I wonder if that’s because it’s a cross! May I remind these supporters of a little thing called separation of church and state. It’s in that quaint historical document we call the Constitution. The answer is simple. If it looks like a cross and walks like a cross, it’s a cross!
