[Media Source*] (Hat Tip: Michelle Malkin)
SAN DIEGO-A ballot measure to preserve the Mount Soledad cross on public land in La Jolla easily surpassed the two-thirds support it needed for approval Tuesday night.
But the voters' decision on Proposition A won't be the final word. The controversy heads back to court next month.
In the "never ending war against Christians" it seems that the faithful have one a temporary victory of those opposed to religious symbols across the land. Although over two thirds of voters supported keeping the structure, Attorney James McElroy who is representing a client trying to remove the religious symbol said the vote, "doesn't mean a d--- thing...Voters should have never voted on it. It's a waste of taxpayers' money."
(Editors note: And one wonderss why Christ never really liked lawyers)
"I think they've acknowledged this is the last chance to save the cross," McElroy said. "And when the court tells them this is not going to work, what else have they got?"
McElroy may be partially right in this approach as Judges have overthrown the will of the people on more than one occasion, inserting their personal views and creating federal mandates (on the left as well as the right). This judicial battle will probably find it's way in front of the judges of the Supreme Court, although the cross will probably stay as the high court has shown some favor towards religions expression.
Cases like these will probably be dismissed in the future, especially with a confirmation of John Roberts to the high court (something very much needed in this new age of "Judicial Aristocracy").

I often find that Michelle Malkin takes the easy way out when attempting to decipher difficult intellectual topics. I wrote a column this week that examines her work from that perspective. It might interest you. www.ruminationsonamerica.blogspot.com
