County Seal: Divine Intervention?

old sealWord from LA County Seal activist David Hernandez is that something akin to a Christmas miracle may be happening in the Los Angeles County Hall of Administration.

new sealLast Friday, at the cost of $1800 in taxpayer funds, the old seals hung since 1957 in the meeting place of the County Supes were covered up by the new design. County Supervisors Zev Yarovslasky, Gloria Molina and Yvonne Brathwaite Burke took up a request from the American Civil Liberties Union that the existing seal designed by Mayor Poopy's Dad Kenny Hahn did not pass the seperation of church and state "smell test" because of the inclusion of a small Spanish cross on the seal.

However today it was noticed that the cross from the old seal is shining through the new seal and is hovering just above the non descript California Mission building the County Supes inserted into the new seal. Channel 4 confirms this tonight and word is a story is coming in tomorrow's Daily News.

Befuddled and fearful of more atheist lawsuits, the three liberal County supes have ordered further work to obliterate the old cross. Representing the Republican minority, Supervisors Don Knabe and Mike Antonovich have demanded no further public funds be spent on covering up the seal.

In the meantime, Hernandez is also making the claim County workers are refusing to change the seal in various places - and that items with the seal are showing up on Ebay. Of course, you need not go to Ebay, but right to Mayor Sam's Place where we have a few seal items that seem to be selling. (Yes, shameless plug but someone has to keep the lights on here.)

As a member of the Jewish faith, I am ashamed and bewildered at the outrageous acts of the ACLU and the County of Los Angeles in forcing at great expense a redoing of the county seal. I understand fully the separation of Church and State and agree with the concept. But like everything else, when a concept is carried to it's impractical extreme, it brings ridicule to the very principles that the concept expouses. Such is the case with the County seal issue. The ACLU and the County Board of Supervisors should be ashamed of themselves for their ignorance and for the millions of dollars they have wasted in changing this seal that could have gone to more sherrif's, better healthcare, assisting our homeless, better education for our children, transportation improvements, etc. This is just another example of government at it's worst !
