Supreme Court rules Christian cross on government land does not violate separation of church and state

The U.S. Supreme Court has just ruled that a 40-foot tall Christian cross war memorial that sits on government land does not violate separation of church and state. The cross sits on county-owned property in Maryland and was erected to honor those who died in World War I.


In its 7-2 decision the Court overturned a lower court's ruling, and said the "Peace Cross," as it is called, is more historic than religious.
