Las Cruces is in trouble. At least a couple of the Lawyers WIthout Nothing Better to Do have decided to waste some tax money pursuing justice for the beleagured non-Christians in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
The city’s logo is three crosses. Of course the city’s name translates “the crosses.” What a religiously bigotted thing to name a city! While stopping short of calling for the city to be renamed, those offended want the symbols removed.
Oddly, they say that â€œthe crosses serve no governmental purpose other than to disenfranchise and discredit non-Christian citizens.â€ Are we then to believe that the Las Cruces government intends to disenfranchise and discredit non-Christian citizens? I have been to quite a few city council meetings (though none in Las Cruces) and have never heard a city councilmember advocate disenfranchising or discrediting anyone.
Frankly, I don’t understand why The Offended are satisfied with changing the logo. How could any reasonable non-Christian be expected to live in a city named for crosses?
The solution? Las Cruces, New Mexico needs to become Los Simbolos Significativos, New Mexico. In a state with a city named Truth or Consequences, would that really seem so strange?
