    The people that claim to be offended by the cross put atop Mt. Soledad in 1954 are only put off by the cross because it does convict anyone that understands what it represents. If it has no place in the heart or in the minds of people, why is it offensive? Those that claim it should be removed take full advantage of getting their picture and name put on the news in a news paper, Why? If you think nothing of why it was put there and what it represents don't give any attention. Some people can see beyond their own thoughts and opinion's and can't let things stand as they are. If you are offended, that is your choice to be so. Enjoy being right if that brings you closer to your version of truth. A great number people before you know what means. You will have your day in court why make a fuss now?

    Yet, you fail to state why.

    How unsurprising.
