Justices Allow Congress To Circumvent Federal Court Order Requiring Removal Of Religious Symbol From Public Land

April 28, 2010

Today’s Supreme Court decision in a California cross case is disappointing, according to Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

“I’m very disappointed,” said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, Americans United executive director. “The court majority was clearly determined to find any bogus reason to keep this religious symbol in a public park.”

Lynn said the ruling in Salazar v. Buono will likely encourage further assaults on the church-state wall.
