A teenager from near Ft. Worth, Texas has performed the impressive but entirely pointless feat of carrying — well, pulling on wheels — a 12-foot cross all the way to Washington, DC, stopping at the White House to offer some meaningless tripe about returning America to the roots they mistakenly think it had.
The church had gathered to watch 19-year old Junior Garcia finish a cross-bearing pilgrimage to Washington, D.C., The congregation of Oasis watched over the internet.
Finally, there was the face of Garcia on the screen as he leaned against a 12-foot long cross. “I can’t wait to get back home to all of you at the Oasis Church,” he told the congregation via the internet. “And I just wanted to share this with you.”
Garcia began his journey in early June in Fort Worth. He has carried his cross along highways and back roads almost every day since.
“I felt God put this in my heart, and it’s something I felt so strong about, to just pick up my cross and carry it,” Garcia said.
Two small wheels on the bottom of the cross allowed Garcia to carry his burden on his shoulders along the shoulder of the roads during the journey…
“I’m speechless right now, standing here in front of The White House,” Garcia told a television photographer in Washington, “I’m amazed that he gave me the strength to make it. God is good. And this nation’s attention will be brought back to the cross and brought back to Jesus Christ and we will be one nation under God again.”
No it won’t. It will make your fellow fundies think you’re wonderful; it will do little else.
