Chattanooga church erecting giant crosses

By

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — A Christian congregation in Chattanooga is erecting tall crosses at its church along Interstate 75.

By the end of the week, a 125-foot-tall cross, flanked by two 100-foot-tall crosses will stand at The Crossing Church, a Church of God congregation’s property.

The Rev. Terry Harris told the Chattooga Times Free Press that the project cost $700,000 and required approval of the Tennessee Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration, along with local permitting.

Harris said the crosses are intended to remind people in the 75,000 vehicles that pass the church daily of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

    Good thing they’re making a giant cross instead of helping the poor or homeless.

    What a waste of money.

    Because so many people in Tennessee are unaware of the gospel story.

    A reminder of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago, and of the giant waste of money that could have been put to better use (Homeless? Drug addicts? Hungry children? fill in the blank?) by these giant asses who erect giant useless crosses. “Reverend” Harris and your supporters: You make me ashamed that I was brought up a Christian.

  5. GeraardSpergen says:

    The crosses are intended to inflate Mr. Harris’s ego to collosal proportions.

  6. Christopher Lee Campbell says:

    This is a complete waste of money and is exactly the opposite of what Jesus taught.

    This is “Klan” country. How long before some of the “good ole boys” decide to “light” up these crosses? Just wondering!
