Town's Mayor Has Strong Words For Group Seeking Removal of Cross

In a press release issued last week, the Freedom from Religion Foundation said it would have little choice but to sue if the town of Whiteville, Tennessee does not remove a Christian cross which a private group erected 8 years ago atop the town's water tower. Fox News reported Friday that the town council has voted to consult with Alliance Defense Fund about its legal options. Whiteville's mayor, James Bellar, had strong words for FFRF, calling them "terrorists":
A terrorist is more than a guy that flies the planes into the building. It’s anyone who can disrupt your way of living, destroy your lifestyle, cause you anxiety. It’s more than killing people. If they can disrupt your routine in life, that’s what they want to do. They are terrorists as far as I’m concerned.
