Crossing Central Avenue


Crossing Central




Dear Editor,

I, too, would like to thank First Church of Nazarene (on lovely, picturesque, bench-free Central Avenue) for its field of little white crosses.  My first thought was that the miniature Flanders Fields was a reminder of all the people we killed during our precious-moment wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  But then I noticed the church’s gaudy (and not so picturesque) electronic billboard merrily flashing “We Stand With Israel.”  So maybe all those pro-life, popsicle-stick crosses proudly represent the thousands of Palestinians massacred in Gaza, shot down like fish in a proverbial barrel.

Interesting that the little white crosses only sprout just before elections.
