A Small White Cross

I received this email from a friend and thought it was a great idea. Hope you agree. 
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 A GREE, 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 .Encourage all you know
to stand for America's Judeo-Christian heritage and
our religious freedom.

 God Bless America!

My family and I in Villa Rica Georgia have built a 5 foot cross and it is white and just behind our mail box for all to see in our front yard. WE ARE A CHRISTIAN nation and if the current admin is thinking otherwise he will be surprised to see millions of white crosses in America. We are the land of the free and home of the brave. Jesus died for us and our sins and I will not let my faith and freedom go easily. God is our sheild and we shall not want. Americans take a stand before you are ******** of your rights. God Bless our World and America.

copy and paste this and see what our ministry is doing we have provided over 2000 crosses at no cost as a witness for Christ come join us .... thecrossministry.webs.com/

It is inspiring to see a small town stand up for their Christian heritage. Yes. it should be done all across America. United as one voice... We are Christian and We are Americans
