Claremont Institute to the Rescue

The following bulletin just came through in my email. I'm glad someone's taking these people to task.

Dr. John C. Eastman, director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, will be filing a civil complaint in the Los Angeles Superior Court this afternoon challenging the removal of the cross from the Los Angeles County Seal. The civil suit, styled David Horowitz et al. v. County of Los Angeles, et al., alleges that the County's decision to remove the cross is an illegal waste of taxpayer funds and violates the "No Preference" Clause of the California Constitution and the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution.

The suit is brought by a religiously diverse group of individuals who believe that the County's decision to remove the cross from a Seal reflecting the historical roots of Los Angeles County demonstrates hostility toward religion in general and Christianity in particular...

For more information, contact John Eastman at 562-900-3902 (cell), or (714) 628-2587 (office). Copies of the complaint will be available at the news conference, and will also be posted on the Claremont Institute's web site, www.claremont.org.
