Does religious imagery have a place alongside state highways? Some in San Diego think not, and have requested that three giant crosses that were erected on a hillside be taken down, according to CBS News. The crosses are located on Inspiration Point, which is inside a city-owned park called Presidio Park. According to a Cal-Trans official, the crosses have been claimed by Rick Hill with the Hillside Community Church, who's agreed to move them to church property within 30 days.

But crosses along the side of the road aren't that unusual, and even if these get moved more are still up in San Diego, in La Jolla and La Mesa.
