This is something most of us haven't thought
about. So many on the far left are doing everything possible to rid
our nation of any sign of God or Jesus, his death and resurrection.
But it is in more places than most of us even think about.
When driving to, from, and through Frankenmuth,
Michigan, I'm always intrigued with the many small simple crosses in
the front yards of the homes we pass by. Those crosses are a
statement of support for Frankenmuth's Christian foundation.
Two years ago an atheist living there complained
about two crosses on a bridge in town. He requested that they be
removed and the town removed them. He then decided that, since he
was so successful with that, the city shield should also be changed
since it had on it, along with other symbols, a heart with a cross
inside signifying the city's Lutheran beginnings.
At that point, the residents decided they had had
enough. Hundreds of residents made their opinions known by placing
small crosses in their front yards. Seeing this quiet but powerful
statement from the community, the man removed his complaint. Those
simple crosses remain in those front yards today.
After passing those crosses for two years, it
finally hit me that a small cross in millions of front yards across
our country could provide a powerful and inspiring message for all
Americans passing them every day. I think it might be time to take
this idea across America .
We have an administration that says "we are not a
Christian nation" and everywhere you look the ACLU and others are
trying to remove from our history and current lives any reference to
God, prayer, or the fact that our country was founded on
Judeo-Christian principles. Our administration can't bring
themselves to talk about "radical Muslims or Islamic terrorists" for
fear of offending them, but they can talk about Americans "clinging
to their guns and their religion", or insinuate that our own
military troops coming home from service overseas might turn into
terrorists. The majority of Americans are Christians, why are we
letting this happen to us?
It's time to stand up and make a statement, a
small, quiet, but powerful statement. If you agree, place a small
white cross in your front yard or garden for all to see that they
are not alone. It would be a beautiful thing to see crosses all
across America .
God has richly blessed America but America is
falling short of returning thanks for it...
