Christian Group Ordered To Hide Cross

This to me is very very sad  imagine labeling the cross  as  "offensive," "way out there," and "blatantly Christian."

This is an example of blatant government hostility toward Christianity from OneNewsNow:

After last year's Independence Day parade in Chesapeake, Virginia, several groups were allowed to set up booths in the city's Lakeside Park. Christian Rights Ministries (CRM) set up its booth, which included a 12-foot-tall white cross. But city officials ordered the group to remove the cross, calling it "offensive," "way out there," and "blatantly Christian." When city officials refused to respond to calls and letters from the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) on behalf of CRM's founder Steve Taylor, the group sued.

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press...

Yet another example of how the devil is running rampant in this world. So sad that Americans have forgotten the religious values this country was founded on. One reason again for us to unite in prayer.

Every time I read such as this article I burn inside. Although I know Christ is the victor at the end, I am so sad to hear this. This is nothing new to Christianly, as Christ and Christians have been persecuted from the beginning and we all have been warned in advance of this. Glory is to God as He has already overcome. Satan knows his destiny is already sealed, he will do everything in his power to drag as many as he can down with him.

For solace keep your eyes to heavens and fixed upon the thorn. This world is but temporal in what is to come.

God will help His own in Jesus Mighty Name Amen
