A group of UCSD students will take a look at both sides of the Mt. Soledad cross controversy this month on UCSD-TV.

During a one-hour program airing through July, including at 9 p.m. today, titled "Separating Church & State: The Mt. Soledad Cross Debate," students enrolled in a UCSD communications class will visit the Mt. Soledad National War Memorial in La Jolla. They also will hear from cross opponent and civil liberties attorney Jim McElroy and from cross supporter and Christian rights attorney Teresa Mendoza. Then students will decide for themselves whether the landmark cross violates the constitutionally mandated separation of church and state.

The program premiers at 8 p.m. on July 3 and will repeat throughout the month. The program aims to go beyond the headlines and sound bites surrounding the ongoing Mt. Soledad cross controversy. Students featured on the program were enrolled in “Culture Wars: The Evolution Debate,” a UCSD communications class. Ariana Hernandez-Reguant, who teaches communications at UCSD, said she developed the class to encourage students to become critical thinkers and carefully examine all arguments before coming to conclusions.

UCSD-TV airs on Cox Cable Ch.66; North County Cox Cable Ch.69; Time Warner Cable Ch.18; Adelphia Cable Del Mar Ch. 68; or UHF (no cable) Ch. 35.
