The Salt Lake Tribune reports that a group called American Atheists Inc. is suing the state of Utah to force the removal of roadside crosses memorializing fallen Utah Highway Patrol troopers.
There's a flaw in the argument that nobody seems to have caught yet. Utah, of course, is a state settled, built, and heavily politically dominated by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That just proves the point that the crosses are religiously-motivated, right?
Because of all the major Christian denominations, Mormons don't use the cross in a religious sense. Ever. In fact, I'd go so far as to say most people raised in the Church have a deep-seated fear of/aversion to crosses used in a religious context. So whatever the intent of the Utah Highway Patrol, it's certainly not their goal to advance cross-wielding Christianity.
