Judge Orders Cross removed as Jesus haters Target Christianity

John 15:18 “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.”

The New American – The PC movement could almost be referred to as the “anti-Christian” movement, as it seems that the only items that liberal snowflakes tend to find offensive are Christian. Recently, for example, a Christian school in Alberta, Canada, was asked to refrain from teaching “offensive” scripture that labels homosexuality as a sin. Likewise, a Christian school in Indiana has been labeled discriminatory for failing to accept LGBT students and has been targeted by the left in a campaign to stop the school from receiving government funding. And now, the latest assault on Christianity includes a federal judge’s ruling against a decades-old cross in a Pensacola, Florida, park.

1st Corinthians 16:22 “If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema  Maranatha.” 

Anathema - a person or thing accursed or consigned to damnation or destruction

Maranatha - the Lord is coming” or “come, O Lord.

Atheists in Pensacola, Florida, filed a lawsuit in 2016 with the Freedom from Religion Foundation and the American Humanist Association asking that a 34-foot-tall white “Latin Cross” erected in 1969 by the Pensacola Jaycees be removed, Fox News reports. The cross replaced another cross that had been erected in 1941 in Bayview Park, and even U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson noted in his June 19 ruling against the cross that it was part of the city’s “rich history.”

Noting that the cross played a role in the city’s celebrations of Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day services, as well as Easter services, Judge Vinson still determined that the cross could “no longer stand as a permanent fixture on city-owned property.”

“I am aware that there is a lot of support in Pensacola to keep the cross as is, and I understand and respect that point of view,” Judge Roger Vinson wrote in his ruling. “But, the law is the law.”

Ironically, Judge Vinson even admitted that the cross does not violate the Constitution.
