This is a ridiculous situation. Take that eyesore down, and the one in Terre Haute that "inspired" it!

The cross at the church up on 41 N was a problem when it first went up. I thought it looked tacky with the verbiage in large red letters. I can't remember if they're still on there or not.
There is a large silver cross I saw on the way to Charleston I'll. A few months back. It must stand 75 ft! tall . It's beautiful! I believe you can see it from I-70 .

This cross in question that has everyone pissed off , wouldn't look so bad if they'd just remove the words" Jesus Saves."
Soldiers Field is full of crosses , I know they're not large like the one we're talking about, but they all still carry the same meaning.In my opinion when I look at a cross I see salvation and a sense of peace in my mind not big oversized letters boasting Jesus Saves.
The cross is like a piece of art. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
When I can look at the artwork around ISU and "take it or leave it."., why can't the rest of you do the same?

Is the Totem Pole still there on 4 TH or 5 TH street? Isn't there symbolism behind that too?

The cross is a graven image. Read your bibles.
Think of all of the money wasted to erect and maintain these crosses all over the world, the millions of dollars wasted on maintenance electric insurance legal bills. How bout we use that money to do real good. Put kids through school by clothes, books food shelter for the needy take care of the sick. That would be the greater good and greater glory for god!

I believe you're close to the truth. Jesus said to his disciples 'Put down your beggar's bowls and follow me'. In essence what He was saying was let go of the material things, follow the right path and have faith that your needs will be met. They had no church building, depended on townspeople to offer hospitality and used the money from the sale of their wordly belongings to help those in need. Jesus preached wherever the opportunity presented, not in a man made cathedral.

When I think of giant crosses in places other than a church, I think of the KKK. The town of Dugger doesn't need to buy the land to keep the cross where it is placed. Just scale down the cross and move it to a church property.

Next time these Christians start bitching about being forced to move religious symbols I'll head over and erect a Satanic monument then stand back and laugh as all hypocrisy is let loose. Morons complain about being "persecuted" but have no problem persecuting others.
