    Should all white crosses be removed from Arlington and all federal cemeteries? Since the US is looking at a stricter interpretation of the constitution regarding separation of church and state are the crosses violating this clause? Would a Muslim soldier buried there have a cross? A Jewish soldier?

    They are mostly headstones. If one was a Christian, they will have a cross on it (different types for different denominations), if they wanted one. Muslims will have a symbol on theirs, Jews will have a symbol on theirs, etc.

    They are headstones.

    Normandy has crosses.

    There is no phrase in the Constitution saying there must be a "Separation of Church & State". The State is only not supposed to prevent citizens from worshiping any god or practicing any religion they choose. If they choose to worship on public property then so be it. The State needs to leave the people alone.

    Here is the list of offically approved religous symbols for grave markers at Arlington National Cemetery:

    Authorized Emblems

    It's interesting to note that one can choose to be buried with a symbol on your headstone denoting that you are an ATHEIST!

    yep...

    why would it bother anyone that people who died in the service of their country are comforted in death by religious symbols?

    no one is looking at a 'stricter interpretation' of the separation of church and state. what people aren't doing is fighting against those who would do away with it.
