The court will hear a First Amendment challenge to a cross that stands on land in California that once belonged to the federal government. The government gave the land to a private group to get around a court order that the cross violated the prohibition on state support for religion. The court should rule that despite the land transfer, the cross is unconstitutional.
So crosses on private land are unconstitutional if the government once owned the land. Got it. Moses in the Supreme Court building is not unconstitutional. Got it.
