Many of you heard the disapointing news today that the Christmas Cross will not be put on display in Pioneer Courthouse Square. The idea was initiated by talk show host Lars Larson who thought that it would be a good reminder to everyone that Jesus is the reason for the season.
You can read his statement at the above link but I'll sum it up: those tolerant liberals have made so many threats of violence and vandalism that the project can't move forward.
Some examples of the Atheist Left attacking this idea:
"Wouldn't mind if someone posted the day and time lars will be trotting down to piosquare with his building project. Would like to see how people respond to this local celebrity fanatic. What if the crowd rushed lars and mounted him on his own cross? "
"crucifixion isn't a laughing matter? It is if you do it today--kind of an archaic violence.
My point was that if Lars is going to martyr himself to the cause, he ought to do it up right. And I'm sure we'll find many takers for the opportunity to post him up there."
Lars on The Cross?
I'll bring the nails... sharp ones
