Hogan vows to fight ruling against P.G. Co's Peace Cross: "Enough is enough"
PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. (WBFF) - Gov. Larry Hogan blasted a federal ruling that a prominent World War I memorial in Prince George's County is unconstitutional.
A panel of federal judges called the 40-foot-high Peace Cross an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.
Hogan called that ruling "outrageous," in a Facebook post Friday, and vowed to fight it.
"I’m a native Prince Georgian and have passed by this memorial thousands of times," he wrote. "I view it as an incredible tribute to those who came before us and made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom."
He promised his "administration will fight this unacceptable overreach. Enough is enough."
The governor said "the idea that memorializing our soldiers killed in battle on foreign lands to make the world safe for democracy is somehow unconstitutional goes against everything we stand for as Americans."
