The pastor said it was disheartening that some of the elected officials are not even willing to listen to constituents.
“Frankly, they are against building this cross,” he said. “At least be open to hearing from your constituents. Frankly, some of them have not even been open to that – and that has probably broken my heart more than anything.”
The mayor said city officials will vote on Sept. 16. But in the meantime, he is still hopeful of a compromise.
“We’ve got Christians calling Christians ungodly,” he said. “It’s digressing to a sad point rather than both sides being in prayer and seeking compromise.”
