Big cross: hope or eyesore?

By Michael Thompson - email

HOUSTON, TX (KLTV) - More than a thousand people turned out to dedicate a 170 foot tall cross in Houston.

The church members say they believe the cross serves as a symbol of hope and God's love, but several homeowners in a nearby subdivision say the cross is an eyesore that will hurt their property values.

This issue is not going away anytime soon. Another nearby church is planning to erect a 150 foot cross soon.
