Atheists Supported

May 21, 1989

I find it no coincidence that whenever an objection is raised about the city-sponsored Christian crosses on Mt. Soledad and Presidio Park, they are conveniently relabled "secular" symbols and veterans' memorials. And City Atty. John Witt bends over backward in trying to find legal loopholes to permit these public crosses. Certainly he would not do the same for a Star of David.

Wouldn't it be nice if the city put a fraction of that effort into erecting "real" secular symbols and veterans' memorials? It's ludicrous for the city to promote the idea that only Christians are worthy of a veterans' memorial. Think about it. The atheists are right on this one.
