The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, which represents a population greater than a number of states, has voted 3-2 to restore the cross to the San Gabriel Mission church on the L.A. County seal to accurately depict the Mission, which now appears on the county seal without its cross.
The motion, filed by Supervisor Michael Antonovich, a US Army veteran and a member of the American Legion, and Supervisor Don Knabe (both Republicans) was supported by Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, a political liberal who once headed the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in L.A. and was once a member of the Board of the ACLU of Southern California. Supervisors Zev Zarovslosky and Gloria Molina, the other two liberal Democrats on the five-member board, voted against the motion, as reported by the L.A. Times.
