Separation of Church and Town


Not sure if anyone has seen this pic but it's definitley sparked some interesting comments among the people gathering in Crawford. The Yellow Grove gift store (includes "Bush Gifts") has a rather large flatbed out front with two tablets of the Ten Commandments on them. In between them is a re-creation of the Liberty Bell. It's big and lighted up with all kinds of lights at night. We weren't real sure what the overall message was (whether its liberty through God and his commandments or something else) but its the first thing you see when you roll into town. This brings up a sticky issue that I won't go into here, but it should give you an idea of where Crawford sits in our political and cultural divide.
