    Frank, here are other grave markers that are not crosses used for US servicemen:

    The cross, star of david, etc. represent that persons faith. So yes the cross is a symbol of religion. If you look at headstones that are your typical gravestone shape the religious persuasion of the soldier is signified by a cross, star of david, etc.

    Teddy Roosevelt did not swear in on a bible.

    John Quincy Adams swore in on a law book.

    I agree that you should be able to have the marker that represents your faith but trying to take something away now because people interpret things differently now is just plain and morally wrong.

    It's the use of public funds for religious symbols that has some people up in arms.

    It's nothing new and GWB tried to get around it during the prior issue.

    It doesn't offend me at all and I have no issue with it. I'm just playing devils advocate to a lot of the arguments on here.

    The issue I have is that if there was a crescent and star (symbology for muslims) erected for US soldiers of muslim faith using public funds there would be howls of derision from the same people defending the use of public funds on the cross. That's the hypocrisy I see.

    There was a typo in the Congressional approval sent to the US Mint...... it was supposed to read "In Gold We Trust".

    I don't have a problem with any of these being displayed, nor do I have a problem with my tax dollars being used to pay for a headstone on a veteran's grave, no matter the faith.
    I am blown away by what the VA has available on the above website, the Star and Crescent being one of them.

    If the cross on Mt Soledad was a crescent and star instead what would your feelings be? (Not being inflammatory or trying to infer anything with this question, just want to get an honest answer)

    If public funds were being used for it then the people fighting against the cross would have the same argument for removing it.

    Judge Burns was nominated by President Bush. It's funny too, because he is an advocate for a ban on assault weapons.

    If that was the way it was originally erected I would feel the same way I do about the cross.......
