It looks like a Supreme Court Justice has grated a reprive to the Mt. Soledad cross I first blogged about the other day. The order suspends the Aug. 1 deadline to remove the cross until further deliberation has taken place.
Many supporting the placement of the cross have viewed this as a positive step. However, lawyers for the prosecution have noted that such things are often a procedural step, a legal equlivant to "We got your briefs, you will be hearing from us."
Today, a prayer rally was held at the cross for supporters. Rev. Pat Mahoney of the Washington, D.C.-based Christian Defense Coalition said "Yes, we're thankful to Justice Kennedy, but God did this. God the Sovereign intervened."
Gee. Took him long enough.
