Over 3000 people, including a group of Freedom Riders, are expected to be at a rally to keep the silhouette of a soldier kneeling in front of a cross at a Knoxville landmark.
“Save the Cross” rally organizer Doug Goff says, in his opinion, the cross shouldn’t be seen as a religious symbol, but as a gravemarker to all military members who’ve died fighting for their country. He says the depiction is of a soldier kneeling to his fallen brother and the cross represents a fallen soldiers tomb.
The “Save the Cross” rally will be at the Freedom Rock Sunday beginning at noon.
More information on the rally is available on their Facebook page here and on Let’s Talk Knoxville.
