Supreme Court Sends Signal: Keep Cross Where It Is

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

A fractured Supreme Court yesterday decided to remand–or send back to the lower court–the contentious case involving a congressional “land swap” that allowed the Veterans of Foreign Wars to keep a cross up in the Mojave National Preserve. Justice Anthony […]

Supreme Court Gets it Right in Memorial Cross Case

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry,    Now, this is a significant victory worth celebrating. In a very closely-watched case, the Supreme Court ruled that a World War I memorial in California’s Mojave Desert that features a memorial cross can remain in place.      The […]

Happy Holidays to you, Jay!

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, I’m glad you brought this up. I’d like to know, what’s wrong with saying “Happy Holidays” and “Seasons Greetings” anyway?  Isn’t the Christmas spirit about being welcoming, loving and peaceful to all? Don’t you think when certain Religious Right […]

Mojave Cross — A Constitutional Crisis Indeed

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, It was a pleasure seeing you, too. I always am up for a great photo-op, too. As you know, I’m heading to New York right now to appear on CNN’s Lou Dobbs Tonight to discuss this very case. But […]

Mojave Cross – No Constitutional Crisis

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, it was good to see you today.  I always enjoy an opportunity to sit next to you during oral arguments at the Supreme Court – especially with a case like the one we witnessed today.  As we both know, […]

Adopt Me–But Don’t Expect Me To Rake Leaves

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

In a shift in right-wing “prayer” policy, the Liberty Counsel is now urging supporters to “adopt” a “liberal” and pray for that person to change his or her political and moral beliefs. The campaign allows people to “adopt” one of […]

It’s All Relative

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Jay, a few thoughts: The Ten Commandments, as you and Judge DeWeese seem to believe, don’t represent an “absolute,” any more than the allegedly “relativist” proposals which seem to upset you. It’s impossible to claim the Ten Commandments aren’t open to interpretation. […]

Supreme Court: Keep Cross & Reject Establishment Clause Challenge

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, we’ve discussed this before, but I wanted to bring you an update on our filing at the Supreme Court of the United States.  In the case of Salazar, Secretary of the Interior, et al., v. Buono, we have filed […]

No Standing to Challenge Memorials

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, you’re missing the point of memorial crosses like those at the Mojave National Preserve,  Mount Davidson, Mount Soledad, and thousands of other places across the country. They are not designed to honor God but rather to memorialize the fallen […]

No Day In Court: Justice Denied

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Yes, Jay, there will be a major battle about the Mojave National Preserve cross next term in the Supreme Court. In fact, it is really two battles in one.  The first is whether the plaintiff in this case is even […]

Finalizing Arguments in Supreme Court Church/State Case

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, we’re preparing to file an amicus brief in a matter of weeks in a case that I know you are closely watching at the Supreme Court.  The high court agreed in February to take the case of Salazar v. Buono, […]

Supreme Court Gets It Partially Right

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Well, Jay, the Supreme Court got it partially right yesterday by conceding the obvious: that when a city accepts any monument from a private party and puts it up as a permanent display in a park, that represents “government speech.” […]

Supreme Court Gets It Right – Religious Displays OK

posted by Jay Sekulow

Barry, the Supreme Court today reached the proper conclusion in a case we argued in November.  Without dissent, the Justices issued what I believe is a landmark decision clearing the way for governments to accept permanent monuments of its choosing […]

The Cross Must Go To A Place of Honor

posted by Rev. Barry W. Lynn

So, the Supreme Court has accepted the case of Salazar v. Buono involving cross erected on public land. The first and foremost point which we must not lose sight of in this case is that this cross was a religious symbol […]

Supreme Court: Keep the Cross

posted by Jay Sekulow

OK, Barry, it took a while – more than a few posts – but I am pleased you finally articulated your opposition to bringing back the Fairness Doctrine. I only hope you can agree with me on this one. The […]
