A young 17-year-old boy was shopping in St. Cloud, MN, at a sports store, called Shields.
The cashier was a Muslim lady who was wearing her headscarf. The17-year-old was wearing a necklace with a cross on it. She told him he would have to put his cross under his shirt because it offended her.
He told her he would not do that. Then he told her that he thought she should take her headscarf off.
She then called for the manager. The manager came out and told the 17-year-old to just put his cross under his shirt and everything would be fine.
The boy again refused to do so and at that point he left the items he had intended to purchase and walked out.
Several customers who had been in line behind him had heard the conversation and also left their carts full of items and walked out of the store!!
KUDOS TO THE 17-YEAR-OLD!!!
We all know we are in some very changing times, and given the same circumstances, I pray we would all have the courage this young lad had,
Our Bible class spent a few minutes talking about the challenge we are facing for our first amendment, right of religious freedom. (I have to wonder what's next? Are they going to try to ban the jewelry store owners from selling any jewelry with a cross on it??)
WILL YOU HESITATE TO PASS THIS ON?? OR BE READY TO DEFEND YOUR
RELIGIOUS RIGHTS!!! GOD BLESS YOU, AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!
