youth on the move

I read this yesterday on the Battle Cry website, and smiled. This was a youth group in Florida:

As Caite tells the story:

One person at a time we went into Victoria Secret, saying "Hey! These posters really offend us. Can you please take them down?"

Of course their first reaction was, "No!! Get out of our store."

But we did not give up! After the 30th person went in there, they were getting kind of angry. You could see their faces change as they stood there.

So we all prayed hardcore! Asking God to give us strength as we went in there all together. After praying, all 30 of us went into Victoria Secret and we said "These posters offend all of us! Please take them down!"

Then all of a sudden there was a sense of peace in the room.


It's good to know that there are teenagers out there willing to take a stand even if the world thinks its silly.

Lex, you are an absolute wad.
The bible was written by illiterate stone age goat herders in the desert as an explanation for the natural phenomena they had no hope of understanding. Because of their louse-infested 'wisdom' you want to deny me the opportunity of seeing glossing photos of hot chicks in lacy, soft, transparent gear.
You wad.
