    Just goes to show when the people actually vote on something it's often a very different outcome than the ACLU would have us beleive. Maybe citizens will finally get fed up with select judges making rules for the majority??

    For those that resist any symbol, or mention of the Cross, here's what Paul said in 1 Corinthians Chapter 1, verse 18 in the New Testament of the bible.

    "For the word of the cross is to those who are perishing foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."

    Seems like Paul dealt with the same type of people 2,000 years ago.

    The cross is the great "divider" of humanity. The cross calls mankind to bow down, and realize their hopelessness. Human pride, selfishness, and one's own fears to give up control is the enemy of the cross. It all started in the Garden with Sinatra's mantra, "I'll Do It My Way.", and it has never changed; just the names, situations, cultures, races and places have.
