A small town an hour north of Houston, Texas is defying an outside group’s demand to take down a Courthouse cross with one simple act.

After the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation complained that four crosses on the San Jacinto County Courthouse violated the Constitution and should be taken down immediately, the community rallied, Texas-style.

The article goes on to state the following:

Hundreds gathered at a town hall and voiced their support for the crosses before county officials unanimously voted last week to keep them on the building.

Resident Cloresa Porter said “the devil is alive” and “political correctness is a one-way ticket to Hell.”

Local preacher Terry Holcomb got a standing ovation when he delivered a message to the Freedom From Religion Foundation, telling them to: “Go suck a tailpipe.”

Dwayne Wright, chairman of the local Republican Party, posted a photo showing the town’s act of defiance.

“THIS is how we roll in San Jacinto County!” Wright wrote on Facebook. “Not only did we not cower to the Wisconsin Whiners, we Lit Them Up!”

    That’s unfortunate that this local government sees no issue with imposing on the religious rights of citizens. I hope they don’t take this to court as it would be a waste of taxpayer dollars better spent on community maintenance and activities.
