Anti-Christian Group Wants School To Remove Cross

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 group Americans United for Separation of Church and State says a cross on the top of an elementary school is a horrific violation of the Constitution.

The AUSCS says that a small concrete cross on the top of Spearville Elementary School in Spearville, Kansas offends an unknown person in the town.  The group routinely uses anonymous people as the basis for their claims against any Christian emblem or symbol being seen in a public place.

The Dodge City Globe obtained a letter from the group that said the “school’s cross display violates the constitutional prohibition against government action that ‘conveys or attempts to convey a message that religion or a particular belief is favored or preferred’.”

The USD 381 Board of Education told the Globe that they won’t be taking any action until the group files a lawsuit.

The building used for Spearville Elementary was a Catholic school until the Dodge City Diocese to the local school district in 1975.  Because the building was constructed in 1925, it’s possible that the building could be considered a historical landmark in the town.

  1. Nancy I will agree with you in prayer that the cross remains. That cross is not hurting anyone or anything by being on top of that building. The ones that want it removed is because it is pricking their hearts to turn their life around and seek the Lord while they still have a chance to do so for time is running out fast .

  2. These people that don’t want anything to do with the cross of Jesus will wish to God that they had never said or done anything against the Christian Faith and our Lord and Savior that died on the cross for all who will except him. Once these people stand before God there will be NO EXCUSE it will then be to late to say I’m sorry I didn’t know and want to change my mind. Either you are for God or against God there is no middle ground we have to choose, God gave us that right he will not force himself on anyone he loves us that’s why he died in our place on that cross.
