Free Speech for Non-Christians Only

The Markland Mall in Kokomo, Indiana recently commissioned a group of local artists to paint the large windows of a now vacant Macy's department store. The artists covered the windows with a variety of winter scenes. One of the scenes is of a country winter, with a little church sitting on a snow-covered hill. The church is a traditional looking country church, complete with a steeple. However, there is one thing missing: the cross at the top of the steeple.

The artist who painted this scene had originally placed a cross at the top of the steeple, but was told by Markland Mall management that the cross had to be removed.

Can we expect our liberal friends, who are constantly assailing any and all attempts at censorship, to come to the side of this artist? Should we expect the ACLU to rush to the defense of her civil liberties and right to free speech? Don't count on it. The right to free speech only applies if we're talking about non-Christian free speech.

The Markland Mall in Kokomo, Indiana can be added to the list of businesses that want to reduce Christmas to nothing more than a secular shopping spree.
