Someone died here.... That's exactly what I think when I see a cross on the side of a highway. It's a symbol of someone passing, a burial site.

American soldiers are recognized this way on unknown graves. It's a symbol of mourning. I don't think it screams "Christianity!" Ask anybody the question " What do you think of when you see a cross posted on the side of the road?" and their answer will be " Someone lost their life there". They won't say " Oh man, the Christians are forcing their religious beliefs on me"

Of course we have our religious freedoms, other religions should be able to use their choice of a monument to someone's death. But why is it all of a sudden ok to bash the Christians?

So if you ever wondered why most people of Islam do not believe that most Americans do not truly respect their faith and beliefs, now you know why, because they don't. A recent poll show that 70% of Americans oppose the building of a mosque in New York City near ground zero. I am willing to bet that many of these same people have absolutely no problem with the Confederate Flag flying over the state capitals of South Carolina and Mississippi.

Do you believe in the Constitution or do you not? Do you believe in the rule of law or do you not? Do you believe in our system of government or do you not? Do you believe in the will of the people or do you not?

2010 looks to be the year that will shape the next generation. With the issues this year we have had on health care, the Gulf oil spill, and race, it was already shaping up to be one of those years like no other. Today we add to that with the first Federal decision on gay marriage. Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker handed down his decision on the constitutionality of California Proposition 8 which denied the rights of gay couples to marry in the state of California finding that it was Unconstitutional.
