Mark 13:13 “You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”
The anti-Christian organization Freedom from Religion Foundation threatened and intimidated the city of Steubenville, Ohio into removing a cross from the city’s logo. The group, dedicated to removing Christians from public life, told the city they would bring multiple lawsuits unless the city removed the logo on their own.
The logo contains shadow renditions of important locations within the city. The cross was part of a building connected to Franciscan University, one of the city’s biggest employers and most recognized city entities.
The FFRF filed suit based on an anonymous citizen who claimed they were offended because the University’s building with the cross included appeared in the city’s logo.
“This is an amazing attempt by a small group of people to try to eradicate God and any reference to religion from our country,” Michael Hernon of Fransican University told Fox News.
