The Atheist Lawsuit And Utah
Today's Utah Policy included a link to Jackalope Pursuivant who pointed out that Mormons don't use the cross as a religious symbol. I've been thinking along those same lines recently and think that while the legal arguments are surely compelling on both sides, we should remember that this situation exists in a specific context. That context is 2005 Utah. What does it mean when a community dominated by Mormonism puts up a cross as a memorial? What does it mean if a cross is used as a memorial for a Mormon officer?
