  • Los Angeles Court Rips Cross off California Mission
     Los Angeles Is No Longer the "City of Angels"

    The Seal of the County of Los Angeles, Our Lady of the Angels
     Will No Longer Have a Cross on Its Mission, the Birthplace of the City
     Founded by Franciscan Friar Junipero Serra in 1771
     A Federal District Court Judge Ruled that the Cross of Christ
     Was Offensive to Jews, Mohammedans, and Atheists, So It Had to Go
     One Country Supervisor, Who May Appeal the Ruling
     Said that a Cross-less Mission "Ignores Historical and Architectural Reality"

    On April 6, 2016, a United States District Court judge ordered the cross removed from San Gabriel Arcangel Mission, founded in 1771 by the Franciscan Friar Junípero Serra, which was the birthplace of the city that was later to be called Our Lady, Queen of the Angeles (Los Angeles). This mission had been depicted with five other symbols of the city in the official seal of the County of Los Angeles. Even though the cross on the mission can barely be seen in the seal, it was offensive to Jews, Mohammedans, and atheists, so it had to go, even though the original 1957 county seal displayed a much more visible cross floating above the Hollywood Bowl. The new design was substituted in 2014.

    One county supervisor said that he would support appealing the ruling, which he said "ignores historical and architectural reality. As any California fourth-grade student knows, the San Gabriel Mission is an important icon to the region and the birthplace of Los Angeles County. The city of San Luis Obispo and the counties of Ventura and San Benito also have missions with crosses on their seals."

  • Don't be surprised if L.A. doesn't experience the Big One now.   See what has been happening in Oklahoma City ever since their blasphemy with the pouring of blood.

  • It goes to show that anti Catholicism exist because of anti Christians.  If anyone finds the Cross of Christ offensive then they are a bigot anti Christian and they are haters.

    If they don't like the Cross, they can leave the United States.  

    To live with the Saints in Heaven is all bliss and glory....To live with the saints on Earth is just another story!  (unknown)
