"Precedent-Setting Victory" over Atheists in This Federal Court Ruling

"[This victory] not only affirms the Bladensburg Memorial will remain in its place of honor but helps ensure that all the nation's veterans memorials, and the veterans they honor, will be protected."

According to a Blaze.com report, the atheist group, American Humanist Association had brought a lawsuit intent on bringing down the cross, and claiming that it was unconstitutional and excluded veterans who are not Christian.

The memorial, constructed 90 years ago by the American Legion, is located in Veterans Memorial Park, and commemorates the lives of 49 men from Prince George CO, who were killed during WWI, said the report.

Defending the American Legion against the atheist groups was the Liberty Institute and Jones Day law firm. Liberty Institute president Kelly Shackelford noted, "This victory sets an important precedent. It not only affirms the Bladensburg Memorial will remain in its place of honor but helps ensure that all the nation's veterans memorials, and the veterans they honor, will be protected."
