Anti-Christian Group Threatens Grieving Mother

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.”

An anti-Christian group threatened to sue the grieving mother of a young man killed in an accident because she placed a cross at the accident site.

AnnMarie Devaney set up the cross after her son, a Christian, was killed when a car struck him as he crossed a street in Lake Elsinore.  The memorial included a 5 foot tall cross because her son was a devoted Christian.

The anti-Christian American Humanist Association threatened to sue unless the cross was removed.  The letter from the anti-Christianists was sent to the grieving mother a week after a judge backed the group’s suit to stop a veterans memorial in the city that would have a cross on it.

Community members rallied around the family and wanted to deliver a message to the anti-Christianists that their bigotry and intolerance would not be tolerated in their town.  Residents created crosses of their own and placed them at the site of the accident saying that the only cross the anti-Christianists demanded removed was the cross of the dead man’s family.

“We did it like a homeschool project to teach (our children) about tolerance and not to be afraid of expressing what you believe,” Holly Alteneder said to the local Press-Enterprise newspaper.

  1. The cross is the symbol of God’s great love for man kind. For God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Hallelujah!

    • Yes, the CROSS represents all the good & different gifts of life from our Heavenly Father & our Savior Who paid the cost for our sin. We will always treasure the Work of the Cross by Jesus, Who pleased The Father in every way – becoming the “Lamb” of God that taketh away the sins of the world. & FREE to any & everyone who will believe!

  2. Satan inspired athiests sure are offended by the cross aren’t they. It reminds them that God is in control and that is a slap in the face to Satan because he wants to be the one in control, but God is greater.

  3. So very thankful for these families to rise up & rally for justice in this country. God will still honor our efforts to keep Christian principles operating in America.
    Can hardly wait to see God’s final actiona against His enemies & rid them of their evil powers of influence against this blessed nation.
    We must stand with Israel in order to please God and expect His protection.
    Remember, Jesus showed, openly, at the Cross that He destroyed the ruling powers of this earth, that He had broken their hold on death & the grave & all their powers. So Satan and his angels & helpers are making full efforts to destroy all that God loves. Let’s put on and keep on God’s full armor for every day of our life.
