Last night, Stephen Colbert covered the recent Supreme Court case concerning a cross in the Mojave desert that many view as violating the establishment clause of the First Amendment (for background, see this piece by the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty). Colbert does an excellent job of pointing out how the cross should be seen as a religious symbol. I made a similar argument--in a much less entertaining way--a couple of years ago in a column entitled "Getting Our Message Crossed."
