Former Homosexual James Hartline Leads A Successful Campaign To Save The Mt. Soledad Cross. James Hartline coordinated hundreds of San Diegans to come to the San Diego City Council on numerous occasions to fight to save the Mt. Soledad Cross from being torn down by Philip K. Paulson, an avowed atheist.
For nearly two decades, Philip K. Paulson, who was filled with hatred towards Christians until the day he died, had been suing to have the cross removed from the Mt. Soledad Veteran's War Memorial. As Paulson and his ACLU attorney were moving ever closer to having the cross removed, James Hartline rose up and took a stand against the atheist agenda and its bigotry and hatred of Christianity.
In this speech at the San Diego City Council in 2005, you will hear James Hartline give one of his many speeches to save the Mt. Soledad Cross and how Jesus Christ saved him and leads him in his battle to fight for the cross. In a twist of fate, Philip K. Paulson can be seen sitting in this video on Hartline's right, scowling at Hartline through most of his speech.
Philip K. Paulson died 18 months after this speech by James Hartline. Paulson heard the gospel through James Hartline's public stand for Jesus Christ and the Mt. Soledad Cross. Paulson expressed hatred for Hartline and the cross up until the day he died of liver cancer in 2006. By the way, the cross atop Mt. Soledad is still standing and so is James Hartline.
