Skyscraper Crosses

A church in Texas dedicated its cross the other day. The cross is a behemoth, 170 feet tall. It is taller than the space shuttle and the Statue of Liberty. Neighbors complain that it is lit all night. The preacher said they wanted to build one 250 feet high but the FAA wouldn't let them.

One resident says it is "an in your face thing. It's overkill."

Church members say it is a sign of God's forgiveness.

Personally, I think it is a sign of the gaudiness of Gaud's people.
