Pastor: School District Told Us To Remove Cross From Sanctuary

(Worthy News) - A Texas school district will no longer hold its graduation ceremonies at one of the largest megachurches in the nation after the church refused to remove a cross from the sanctuary.

For more than a decade the McKinney School District held graduation ceremonies for three of its high schools in the massive sanctuary of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano.

But that tradition ended abruptly after a group of atheists, agnostics and free-thinkers complained about a public school system using a building that belongs to a Christian church.

“It was our refusal to remove the cross from view that created this cowardly decision,” Pastor Jack Graham wrote on Twitter. “It appears religious freedom is under attack at the McKinney Public Schools.” [ Source: Townhall (Read More...) ]

  1. This is stupid, at best.

    If the shoe was on the other foot, if this graduating ceremony was being held in a Wiccan hall, with wiccan symbols clearly showing, you'd have every Christian in Plano, TX, "up in arms" objecting to it.

    This cross which these unbelievers are complaining about isn't even a Protestant cross! That's if the picture in the original article (linked at end of article) is to be believed. How and why a catholic cross (a cross with a dying Jesus on it) is up and showing in a "megachurch" that seems, for all intents and purposes, to be Protestant, I can't even imagine. Take it down! Shame on them for it having to be Athiests etc who have to tell them it's wrong.

    Used to be, during the actual Protestant Reformation, Protestants knew better than to put up idols and/or do idolatry. Haven't those people ever read the 10 Commandments? It's one of the core doctrines our first, original, apostles gave to us, see:

    Acts 15:28-29. In fact, read the whole of chapter 15.

    Our own bibles has names for believers who no longer believe their own Bibles. It calls them dead. It calls their works "dead works" when they are no longer works pleasing to God. The fact that most of the US churches are so full of dead works that they have rendered themselves useless to Christ, is beside the point. Take down the catholic cross, for this year, at least. Want a cross, put up a Protestant one then.

    "I see dead people. Walking around like regular people. They don't see each other. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're dead. All the time. They're everywhere." Cole Sear's lines from Sixth Sense.

    Just because the ungodly complain about something we Believer's do, doesn't automatically make it wrong.
