I wonder if many of these congregants are also donors to the ACLU, which is ever on the lookout for such infamous examples of creeping theocracy such as roadside crosses marking fatal car wrecks.
It states that these institutions face acute threats. From whom? Are we allowed to know that? Or is that something these congregants aren’t comfortable with us thinking about, because they don’t want us to get in the habit of thinking about [omitted] because then our brackets will turn into (((parentheses)))? Of course, if the acute threat was from people in roughly my neck of the political woods, it would have been clearly stated.
