Getting cross with the Cross…

A young 17-year-old boy was shopping at a sports store somewhere in Texas. The cashier was a Muslim lady who was wearing a headscarf. The 17-year-old was wearing a necklace with a cross on it. She told him he would have to put his cross under his shirt because it offended her. He told her he would not do that. Then he told her that he thought she should take her headscarf off. She then called for the manager. The manager came out and told the 17-year-old to just put his cross under his shirt and everything would be fine. The boy again refused to do so and at that point he left the items he had intended to purchase and walked out…

Several customers who had been in line behind him had heard the conversation and also left their carts full of items and walked out of the store!! KUDOS TO THE 17-YEAR-OLD!!!

We all know we are in some very changing times, and given the same circumstances, I pray we would all have the courage this young lad had. We spent a few minutes talking about the challenge we are facing for our first amendment right of religious freedom. (I have to wonder what’s next? Are ‘they’ going to try to ban the jewelry store owners from selling any jewelry with a cross on it??)

    Alice, I am sorry that you have taken this approach, for as we both know – this very type of thing is going on all over this nation today. NO – I cannot guarantee that the story as published above is true – nor was it my intent to represent it as such – but merely to have our readers SEE an example of these kind of things. C’mon – use your head here… what do you see going on with the attitudes of the so-called Gang of Four in Washington, D.C? Their hatred is immense – and is it such which causes these kinds of things to take place.

    Over the years, I’ve grown to trust the federal observer, but this phony story, makes me wonder, why your publication would allow it. Come on, the tell tale marks of a phony story, are “shopping at a sports store somewhere in Texas”. We all know who is the father of all lies. This phony garbage piece doesn’t belong on your site. Shameful that this Point Blank is encouraging people to pass the lie along. There’s plenty of truthful news out there of Muslims persecuting Christians…. there’s no need to make up lies.
    Know this, John 8:44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
