At the cost of $700,000, a church in Chattanooga, TN has erected three, 10-story crosses within feet of one of the busiest stretches of interstate in the country.
A reporter from the Times Free Press asked three local high school students their views on the matter:
“I really think they could’ve spent the money in better ways,” said Cody Teague, one of the group.
He and friends Cody Sehon and David Lynch went to Ooltewah High School together and have remained in the community they grew up in since graduation a few years ago. They have worked stints at a handful of Chattanooga’s brochure employers: Volkswagen, Amazon, the downtown hotel businesses.
They said Saturday they just can’t see the point in spending that kind of money for the crosses, especially when there is so much poverty in the area.
At least the kids get it.
