    “When this all first happened, I prayed and asked God to protect the cross,” said Wanda Sandoz, a caretaker of the cross, in a statement to Religion News Service.”

    We live on a planet where 30,000 children under the age of 5 years die EVERY SINGLE DAY, over half of them from starvation and malnutrition. That’s 10,000,000 children a year, every year. And this lady thinks she gets to ask the all-powerful deity that lets children die slowly and painfully to protect a couple of pieces of steel welded together at right angles, because she likes it.

    Reality is.

    We live on a planet where 30,000 children under the age of 5 dies EVERY DAY, that’s 10 MILLION A YEAR. And you are wasting your time reading articles, bunching up your panties, and writing outraged comments. I’m not sure why.
