Gun-toting Christians Guard College’s Cross From Antifa Thugs

The only way to stop Antifa, Black Lives Matter Marxists and other radical groups that want to destroy America is to stand up and fight.

That’s the central theme of my latest book, “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation.” Click here to read the book. 

When people of faith stand up – together – we can stop the jihadists. And that’s exactly what happened in Eugene, Oregon.

Hundreds of Christians turned out over the weekend to protect a giant cross on the campus of New Hope Christian College in Oregon.

Antifa claimed the cross is a racist symbol and they planned to either deface or tear down the cross – which was originally built on public land.

″(The people who showed up) are saying we are tired of this and we’re not going to stand it anymore,” New Hope Bible College President Wayne Cordiero told the Register Guard.

Back in the 1920’s several wooden crosses were erected on Skinner Butte – an area known for racist activities by the Ku Klux Klan and other racist groups. The wooden crosses were replaced by a giant cement cross in the 1960s.

In the 1970’s local residents rededicated the cross as a memorial to war veterans.

It was relocated to the college in 1997 after a federal court ruled the cross could not stand on public property.

New Hope Christian College points out that their cross has nothing to do with racism.

“We view the cross as a powerful symbol of abundant hope and unconditional love,” they wrote in a statement.

When word got out that Antifa had plans to tear down the cross, hundreds of people responded – some armed with guns.

“There is a strong core of people standing for what is right,” supporter Tim Ravan told CBN News. “This is kingdom business and the church has to be awakened. We are standing for the cross.”

And it seemed to work. As of today – the cross at New Hope Christian College is still standing.
