CROSS TO BE RESTORED TO CHURCH ON L.A. COUNTY SEAL; ACLU THREATENS SUIT
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, which represents a population greater than a number of States, has voted 3-2 to restore the cross to the Mission church on the L.A. County Seal in order to accurately depict the Mission which now appears on the County Seal.
The motion, filed by Supervisor Michael Antonovich, a U.S. Army veteran and a member of The American Legion, and Supervisor Don Knabe, was supported by Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, a political Liberal who once headed the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in L.A. and was once a member of the Board of the ACLU of So. California. Supervisors Zev Zarovslosky and Gloria Molina voted against the motion, as reported by the L.A. Times.
The irony of this is that the Mission is on the current County Seal only because the ACLU threatened to sue the County’s former Seal — and to seek thousands upon thousands of judge-ordered, taxpayer-paid attorney fee “awards” in litigation. That former Seal, designed by the late Supervisor Kenneth Hahn, so liberal and politically correct he would make Obama appear conservative.
