Quoting ~Julie Blue Eyes~:" Crosses offend people. It reminds them of a God that they hate."


Um... well I dont have a god, but a cross doesn't offend me. It's another person's belief and grief. I'm not going to throw a b***h fit over that.

This makes me sad. Hopefully they don't take it down.

Thanks. Why else ask to have it removed?

Its on a public road though, not on someone's property.

Not everyone feels like you do. You can look the other way and not make a stink about it. But, there is a reason people don't want it there. Very few WOULD throw a "b***h fit" over a thing such as this. But SOMEONE is. Whoever is, must find it offensive. That's the only conclusion that I can draw from the info given.

There can be a million reasons why someone would want it removed that does not include hating God.

People like you turn others away from God with that attitude, so sad.

Okay, well then it's city/county property.



Like I said, I am sorry for your loss and I really mean that... but I REALLY think they're asking for it to be removed because it's a distraction for other drivers. I know you said there haven't been any more accidents, but that's the point - they don't want anyone else hurt or killed.



I highly doubt they want it removed simply because it's a cross.

I'm kind of surprised at this reply.



Whenever I see roadside memorials, I don't think, "Oh, it's a cross".... I really do say to myself, "How many other are going to wreck trying to read this?"

You are so full of hate and anger for a woman of God.

Why assume the worst of people?

Even athiests don't "hate God", so idk where you came up with this anyway.

Not defending her or anything, but here there have been cases of people asking for religious things to be taken down because it offends people, such as cross's and such.. Not saying this is the case here in this example because I"ve never known it happen to a memorial.

They are distracting to someone who scans the road constantly. I take the county road when I pick up my girls from school and because there's a huge deer population, I scan the fields and sides of the road as I drive to be prepared if there are deer in the area.



It's a HUGE distraction to see a bright and colorful memorial on the side of the road. If it's causing that kind of issue or it's on private land, I can see why someone wants it down.



I don't call and complain about the 2 memorials on my way in but that's because I know it's my fault for looking; however, I can understand why someone would want it removed.
