So first the town of Hiram, Georgia, put up 79 crosses to commemorate, for Memorial Day, 79 of its people who have died in our country’s wars.
Immediately, in nanoseconds, they got the phone call from the “unnamed resident” complaining that the town didn’t check to see that each and every one of those 79 were Christians, and that therefor the cross was “religion,” blah-blah. In fear of the inevitable lawsuit, the town quickly removed the crosses.
After a firestorm of complaints and angry comments in the social media, yesterday the town put the crosses back up ( http://dailycaller.com/2016/05/26/town-removes-memorial-day-crosses-after-complaint-then-puts-them-right-back-up/ ).
And the mayor’s typical lily-livered comment: “It was never about religion–it was just to honor them.”
Two lessons can be learned from this. First, Jesus Christ owns the Cross. God knows He paid enough for it! To speak of it as a mere civic symbol is a serious error
But second, we don’t have to take this anymore. See yesterday’s post about the high school kids at East Liverpool High, Ohio, who, every last one of them, sang The Lord’s Prayer for graduation in spite of the atheists’ threats against the school district. If a bunch of high school kids can stand up to these little tinpot tyrants, then we can all learn to do it.
These are micro-minorities–atheists, transgenders, sodomite activists, race hustlers, and the rest of them. Why have we, the majority, allowed them to hijack our country and try to turn it into a Third World basket case?
Jesus Christ the King will defend us, if we put our trust in Him and be true to Him. Be strong, and of good courage–like Caleb. Read up on Caleb–“Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it” (Numbers 13:30)–and cultivate a spirit like his.
