The ACLU continues to rewrite history and push religion from the public square:
Los Angeles County supervisors, faced with an ACLU lawsuit to remove a tiny gold cross from the county seal, have voted to remove the cross, but the Roman goddess Pomona will stay. County supervisors voted Tuesday (June 1) to remove the cross, which was incorporated into the seal's original 1957 design to represent the Catholic missions founded by Jesuit missionaries.

The seal, which appears on all county vehicles, meeting rooms and employee badges, also features a Spanish galleon, a tuna fish, a dairy cow, the Hollywood Bowl, engineering tools, oil derricks and Pomona, the goddess of gardens and fruit trees, to represent agriculture.

Hmmm. Pomona gets to stay. I wonder...
