Maryland Governor Calls Peace Cross Ruling A Great Victory

(Annapolis)- Governor Larry Hogan is calling the Supreme Court decision to allow the Peace Cross to remain standing on public land in Maryland a “great victory.”  Hogan says the ruling ensures the memorial to World War One veterans in Bladensburg “will stand tall and proud for the ages.”  Opponents argued that the 40-foot cross violates the constitutional separation of church and state.  Justices said the cross does not represent a government endorsement of religion.
