    So the tiny cross is offensive, but the huge Virgin of Guadalupe (a Latin version of the Virgin Mary) is not a religious symbol worth arguing over?!? :wtf:

    It's actually the Roman goddess Pomona.

    So this is all over the little gold cross on the right side of the seal in the middle? I could barely notice it, but then again, I was looking at a small picture because I couldn't enlarge it.

    I personally think there are better things to fight against and waste one's energy on than trying to get a tiny little cross off a seal.:rolleyes:

    Hey, no prob!! ;)

    Just because I'm liberal and a weak atheist, doesn't mean that people can't have a little tiny gold cross in their seal! :D

    It's just silly. The ACLU has better things to do (though I'm sure some disagree) :D

    You know. It's not about it being a religious symbol, and it's not about people being offended. It's about the ACLU and their communistic attempts to rewrite history.

    So what if Christianity played a major role in establishing cities like SAN Francisco, SAN Diego, or Los ANGELES, they don't like it, they've nothing better to do, so they've decided to delete some of that part of California's history.

    Stalin Era= We don't like Trotsky anymore so we are going to destroy pictures of him, delete mention of him in any publication, and quietly remove anyone who ever associated with him.

    Khruschev Era= We don't like Stalin anymore so we are going to destroy pictures of him, delete mention of him in any publication, and quietly remove anyone who ever associated with him.

    There was a saying in the C.C.C.P.

    "The future is known. Only history changes."


    If no one stands up and fights what will be next?

    As a card carrying member of the ACLU, I'll have to point out in this situation (as with many others), people seek out the ACLU for support on what ever their endeavor is. If the ACLU can see that it is in fact a violation of certain rights, they will proceed with supporting the people (there's always loopholes in the judicial system). I do not agree obviously on every endeavor that ACLU decides to support, but I cannot consider a "seek and destroy" type of group. They just try to make things equal and fair. Unfortunately (for some), many people on the right disagree with what the ACLU tries to accomplish because it goes againsty their beliefs and what they think is equal and fair, which is understandable.

    What does the cross on LA county's seal have to with civil liberties?
