Activists, Hindus, Jews protest highway crosses
A church-state watchdog group has joined Hindu and Jewish organizations in arguing that a Utah court erred in ruling that a highway cross memorializing a fallen state trooper is a "secular symbol of death."

A friend-of-the-court brief was filed Wednesday in the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver by Americans United for Separation of Church and State and several other groups, including the Anti-Defamation League, the Union for Reform Judaism and the Hindu American Foundation.

"When used as a burial marker, the cross does not signify death in the abstract," they argued. "Instead it connotes the deceased's Christian faith." ...

Christ was made a "curse" for us. (Galatians 3:13). Jesus was scourged (John 19:1) & made to carry His cross & when He stumbled, another was called to carry it (Luke 23:26).
Crucifixion can be traced back to the Egyptians (Genesis 40:19) & the Persians (Esther 7:10). It was also practiced by the Assyrians, Scythians, Indians, Germans, and from the earliest times by the Greeks and the Romans. Alexander the Great, after the conquest of Tyre, had two thousand Tyrians crucified as punishment for their resistance. Rome made a science of it as a terror weapon.
Crucifixion was a punishment that was only for slaves or malefactors of the worst kind and Roman citizens were exempt from it. If the Jews used this manner for punishment, it was usually done after the death. In other words, the body or the head was tied to a stake and therefore, placing the head on a pole after death was also called crucifixion.

From the earliest accounts of the history of crucifixion, it was considered the most horrible form of death. To the Jew, it would seem even more horrible because of the curse in
Deut.21:23

Crucifixion was horrible torture, killing by asphixiation, loss of blood and/or shock.

But Christ has redeemed even this.
Because he OVERCAME IT!
This sticks in the craw of the pagans.
