An atheist group recently forced a grieving mother to remove a cross honoring her dead son.

 

Ann Marie Devaney was fighting tears as she removed a cross honoring her son Anthony who was killed by a vehicle crossing the road in 2012 in Southern California.

The American Humanist Association pressured Lake Elsinore city to remove the white crosses stating that it was unconstitutional since the highway is government owned.

What is wrong with having a plywood cross up? Plenty, said the group’s attorney Monica Miller.

“It should be taken down now because they’ve had it up for a long time and ever since it was put up, it really has been unconstitutional.”

The association also challenged the building of a memorial of a solider kneeling at a gravesite with a cross and the Stars of David in front of a baseball stadium in Feb. A U.S. district judge found it unconstitutional and the memorial violated the separation of church and state. It was ordered to be redesigned. The complaint lodged against the Devaney’s cross was dated on March 4.  report’s Beliefnet
