Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders is standing up to a bunch of secularist bullies who demanded that she remove a chalk drawing of a cross from the governor’s mansion.
The artwork was created by her three children on the driveway of the governor’s mansion. It featured a white cross surrounded by colorful stained glass window patterns.
“So proud of how hard the kids worked and how well their masterpiece turned out,” the governor wrote on Facebook.

Americans United, a group that fights against public expressions of the Christian faith, was not as pleased with the artwork. They were downright triggered.
They accused the governor of violating the U.S. Constitution by letting her children create chalk drawings at the governor’s mansion.
It’s the most absurd argument I’ve heard — and that’s saying something when it comes to these godless heathens.
Are they suggesting that the Sanders family should not be allowed to say grace before their meals or that the children will not be permitted to say bedtime prayers because they reside in the governor’s mansion?
“When fighting to defend church-state separation, we must always reject Christian nationalism,” they wrote on Twitter.
The secularists sent her a nasty letter calling for her to immediately remove the Latin cross.
“The religious display at the entrance to the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion violates the Establishment Clause because it sends a message that the Governor’s office—and by extension, the state of Arkansas—favors one religion over others,” they wrote. “Such favoritism is unconstitutional. “We therefore ask that you remove this display.”
The governor’s response was swift and direct.
“I have received your letter and my answer is no,” Sanders replied. “I will not erase the beautiful cross my kids drew in chalk on the driveway of the Governor’s Mansion or remove my post on social media, and I will not now or ever hide that I am a Christian.”
“In Arkansas, we stand up to bullying liberals. We won’t let you power-wash our kids’ chalk drawings off our front steps,” she said. “We won’t let you tear down Christmas decorations and stomp our tradition into the dirt. We don’t live our lives in fear of strongly worded letters coming down from Washington.”
Franklin Graham, the renowned evangelist, praised the governor for standing her ground.
“I love it,” he said. “I say great job kids – and thank you Governor!”
