(Christian Post) The Supreme Court ended on Tuesday a years-long legal dispute on behalf of an Illinois-based atheist who sued the state for funding the refurbishment of a large, decades-old Bald Knob Cross of Peace located in Alto Pass.

“This action by the Supreme Court affirms that our nation’s court system is a joke,” Chicago-area atheist Robert Sherman, who filed his initial lawsuit in 2010, said of the High Court’s rejection of his final appeal.

Sherman went on to call the ruling a “fraud against the taxpayers of this country,” and a “[violation of] our rights with impunity when making unconstitutional expenditures to advance religion.”
