I received this request from TFP. It is a good cause.
Liberals and atheists are now trying to bring down another historical cross. This one is particularly important to our American heritage.
The Father Marquette Memorial Cross in Ludington, Michigan, was erected at Ludington, Michigan, on the site where Father Jacques Marquette died. Father Marquette was a French missionary from the late seventeenth century who explored the Mississippi. [Fr. Marquette is a monumentally important figure for the history of the region. He deserves an appropriate monument. Nothing is more appropriate than a Cross, in which name he worked, where he died.]
The large, white Cross has stood near Lake Michigan in Ludington for over half a century. And now atheists want it torn down!
According to reports:
An iconic West Michigan monument honoring Father “Pere” Jacques Marquette has come under fire recently, and now the Michigan Association of Civil Rights Activists is calling for the Christian cross to be removed.
“The cross is in a hilltop memorial park on a small peninsula in Pere Marquette Township. The peninsula separates Lake Michigan and Pere Marquette Lake, and the cross is visible from either side. It was erected in 1955 on the spot where Marquette reportedly died.”
How could anyone even conceive of taking down this important marker?
This is not only an attack on our American heritage but on Christian civilization.
We must take a stand! We cannot allow our country’s links with Christianity to be destroyed.
Please take the time to sign our petition, asking the Township of Pere Marquette to let the Marquette Cross stand.
