In this exciting episode of TTiVLIVE!, over 50 speakers give Pere Marquette Township leaders a piece of their mind after the township was threatened with a lawsuit by the Atheist group Freedom from Religion which wants an iconic cross removed.
A few of the speakers voiced opposition to public funds being used to maintain the burial marker of Father Jacques Marquette, but even they had no objection to the existence of the cross which marks the original burial place of the famed explorer.
Many of the townsfolk came forward with offers of money to pay the township’s lawyers should a suit be brought, others volunteered to maintain the cross and the grounds at no charge to taxpayers. Still, others suggested that the township sell the land the cross was erected upon to a private memorial preservation group.
None of the speakers validated the claims of the Atheist group that the cross was offensive. Every single one voiced their support for the continued existence of the cross.
