5.11 Needles - Mojave Cross landmark is gone

The Mojave Cross stood in the Mojave Preserve northwest of Needles. It has been a landmark to WWI veterans since the 1930's. It is now gone.

The National Parks Service says the cross was bolted to a rock and the bolts were cut and the entire cross is gone.

The embattled cross was being recovered by NPS workers with a wooden box because of ongoing litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). The ACLU does not want the cross there or to be visible.

Last month there was a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that allows the 7-foot landmark to remain on federal land. The ACLU says the high court ruled that a lower court used the wrong legal standard when it invalidated a land transfer which was used to keep the cross on federal land. An appeal is expected soon in the U.S. Ninth District Circuit Court.

The ACLU promotes gay rights, removing God from government, no prayer in schools and other immoral issues.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) has vowed to catch the people who stole the cross, offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those behind the cross’s removal.
