Crucifix in Store 'offends' Jewish Woman


While reading some religious news articles online I came across an Associated Press story about a St. Louis grocery store where the store manager had put up a crucifix near the front counter. Apparently, it has offended a few people, including one Jewish woman who felt the need to complain to the Jewish Light newspaper.
After listening to some complaints, the grocery store company sided with the store manager and allowed the crucifix to stay stating;
"Company leaders made a decision to honor that request out of respect for Tom and his faith," Willis said. "In fact, that's part of the reason they put him in charge of Culinaria. He's a man of such strong faith; who better to put in a store where so many faiths come together?" -AP-

I think this is wonderful. Why must everyone get so "offended" by seeing someone else display their religious faith? When I occasionally shop in an Asian store that sells everything from food items to greeting cards and holiday decorations, I am not offended by their Buddha sitting on the counter near the register. When I visit a small gift shop owned by a fundamental evangelical couple I am not offended by the cross hanging on the wall or the assorted faith items displayed around the check out counter. Looking at the Star of David, or a cross or a Buddha statue does not offend me. Why should it? What is so offensive about viewing someone else's symbol of faith? Have we all become so intolerant of religious freedom that we actually feel offended when looking at a faith other than our own?
Look around you. There are things to truly be offended by in this world, a crucifix on a wall is not one of them in my opinion.

EWTN’s “The World Over Live With Raymond Arroyo” Wins Industry Award For ‘Best Religious Program’


Irondale, AL (EWTN) – EWTN’s long-running news show, “The World Over Live with Raymond Arroyo” was named the winner of CableFAX Magazine’s 2009 award for “Best Religious Program.” Host Raymond Arroyo accepted the award during a Sept. 16 ceremony in New York City.


Here’s what CableFax had to say about the show:
“Since its 1996 debut, “The World Over Live” has become one of EWTN’s most popular shows. News Anchor Raymond Arroyo has interviewed everyone from former President George W. Bush to the Pope (before he was Pope...way to predict that one) to Mel Gibson to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. In all instances, his probing questions always remain relevant to the Catholic concerns of EWTN’s dedicated audience. The show, which emanates appropriately enough from the John Paul II Cultural Center in Washington, D.C., features news, interviews, a call-in segment and interaction with a studio audience. Meanwhile, Arroyo has become a staple on mainstream cable news nets like CNN and Fox News. Bravo to EWTN for winning "the world over."
