Appeals Court Says World War I ‘Peace Cross’ Violates Constitution

RICHMOND, Va. – (AP) – A federal appeals court has found that a towering cross on a Maryland state highway median just outside Washington violates the U.S. Constitution.

A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit of Appeals in Richmond ruled Wednesday that the 92-year-old monument known as the Bladensburg ‘Peace Cross’ amounts to government sponsorship of a particular religion.

The court overturned a 2016 ruling that said it was meant mostly as a secular commemoration of World War I.

The American Humanist Association said the 40-foot (12-meter) tall cross endorses Christianity while ignoring non-Christian veterans.
