It's a commonly held belief that if you wave a cross at a CityBeat staffer, the journalist will flee in terror. Not true. However, if you do want to see us cower and scramble for cover, just make us watch a five-and-a-half-minute music video that asks the U.S. Supreme Court not to force the removal of the giant cross from Mount Soledad. 

The Liberty Institute, a pro-Christian advocacy group that's been battling the American Civil Liberties Union and a bunch of atheists over the issue, produced the video as well as the website that goes with it. It stars country lyricist Jon Christopher Davis, who can't lip sync to save his life, as well as a platoon of sad-eyed veterans. 

Warning: This video is not safe for vampires or anyone with any taste whatsoever.
