Mount Rubidoux Cross is Safe



No need to worry. The iconic Mount Rubidoux cross will not be taking down. Instead it will be auctioned off to a private buyer in a public auction.

The minimum bid will be $10,000. According to The Press Enterprise, three community groups will be among the bidders in favor of keeping the cross.

The group, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, wanted the cross removed from public owned property since November saying it violated the Constitution’s idea of separation of church and state.

Fortunately, many in the community including the city council rallied behind the cross mainly because of its historical significance. Even local professional fighter, Josesito Lopez wanted to save the cross.

Now it will be set for auction within the next two months. The group that wanted the cross removed see this as a success, because it now will be separated from government where they believed it didn’t belong in the first place.
