Removing Religious Symbols

The fight continues regarding the Cross on Mount Soledad.

Off the top of my memory, which admittedly is not what it once was, there were two future presidents who attended the Constitutional Convention, however briefly: Washington, and Madison (Jefferson was a major contributor but did not attend, as I recall he was in Paris.)

Certainly they understood the US Constitution better than anyone alive today including the SCOTUS. None of them removed religious symbols, including Jefferson, who famously penned those famous words “separation of church and state.” (Those words are NOT in the Constitution, they are in a letter Jefferson wrote.)

Even Jefferson never removed religious symbols, and if he wouldn’t, neither should we.
