The problem is that there’s a cross on one of the mountains caught in the blaze — I’m not sure which cross it is — and Facebook commenters are furious that the station would post such blasphemous footage.
As if this were some sort of threat to Christians.
Check out these comments underneath that video:
Why would you show that burning?!
Because this is news. This is really incredible video. This isn’t Christian persecution, or a warning, or a sign that the news team hates God, or an omen, or anything other than “Whoa, you gotta see this!”
Here’s hoping everyone is safe. The cross can be rebuilt if necessary.
