TINY CROSSES - MINISCULE MINDS

The ACLU is bound and determined to protect you from the scourge of nearly invisible crosses and other Christian symbology that infests public seals and flags everywhere. Any other religious symbol is completely acceptable mind you - just not a cross. John Leo of the New York Daily News has something to say about it here.

Snipets:
This time around, they [the ACLU] are leaning on the village of Tijeras, N.M., whose seal contains a conquistador's helmet and sword, a scroll, a desert plant, a fairly large religious symbol (the Native American zia) and a small Christian cross. Tiny cross inspectors are not permitted to fret about large non-Christian religious symbols, only undersized Christian ones, so the ACLU filed suit to get the cross removed.

[ ... ]

What will happen if the ACLU learns that Los Angeles, Santa Monica, San Francisco, St. Louis and Corpus Christi actually have religious names? We shudder to think.
Aren't you glad they're looking out for your right not to have to look at crosses with a magnifying glass?
