In May of 2012, 19-year-old Anthony Devaney was taking a nighttime walk when a car struck and killed him.
It wasn’t long before a large cross was placed at the scene of the tragedy:
Here’s a difficult question: How long should that cross be allowed to stay up? Forever? A few months? It’s not an easy discussion to have, but the American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center believes it’s time for the city of Lake Elsinore (yep, them again) to take it down. In fact, the city did take it down last December… but they put it right back up after Devaney’s mother “demanded” its return.
