Nowadays, Christianity in America is considered almost a crime, with liberals trying to diminish its worth and democrats trying to impose other religions on our citizens.
Although Americans found themselves in a very cornered place, faith-wise, it wasn’t always been so.
Just take a look at this photo from New York City on Easter of 1956.
During Holy Week, the city beamed with symbols of Christ’s crucifixion, death and rebirth- something that does not exist in NYC today.
The photo is taken at the New York’s Financial District, with crosses beaming across the buildings and lighting up the city.
“Huge crosses, formed by lighted windows, blaze above New York’s skyline as part of an Easter display in Manhattan’s financial district,” the report regarding the story goes.
“This scene, photographed from the roof of the Municipal Building, features 150-foot-high crosses in the City Services Co., City Bank Farmers Trust Co., and the Forty Wall Street Corp. buildings.”
The most interesting fact is that the photo was published on March 31, but Easter wasn’t due until April 1. This means that Americans took their Holy Week quite seriously back then, and honored their faith in the best way possible.
The photographer is unknown, but whoever it, he or she created a piece of history and faith worthy of our respect.
The liberals will have a temper tantrum over this one, for sure, given the fact that faith is not the most valuable principle they cherish.
However, we can all agree on one thing – what has been lost could be once more restored if we decide to stop shying away from what we really stand for.
