Christians Ditch Anonymity and File New Lawsuit to Keep Giant Cross in Grand Haven, Michigan

It was just a few days ago when I posted about the latest development in the ongoing saga in Grand Haven, Michigan.

A Primer on Christian Legal Defense Groups

Daniel Bennett, writing for Religion & Politics, has done a nice job of explaining the various groups out there and what makes them unique.
