ACLU Lawyer Demands State Take Down 53 Year-Old Highway Cross (Video)

An ACLU lawyer traveling in rural Massachusetts spotted the 53 year-old highway cross last summer. Now he’s on a mission to have it removed.
Via MyFOX Boston: reported:

In 1959, the Middleboro Kiwanis Club in Massachusetts put up a large cross that said “WORSHIP” on it on a traffic island off one of the local freeways. It stood for 53 years. Then, a liberal lawyer spotted it.

Now, the state may have to tear it down.

According to CBS Local, the cross “sits mostly on town land. The state owns a small fraction of the traffic island where it is located, and thus, the ACLU says, the cross violates church and state separation laws.”

The ACLU suggests that the island be opened up to all religious displays or that the cross be torn down or moved. The Kiwanis Club itself is not a religious institution.
