CROSS: Atheist nation certifies Christian icon!

I can't really say how I feel about the thought of the Cross of my Savior being used in this way, but I think Jesus might say ...
"Do not hinder [them]; for he who is not against you is for you."
Luke 9:50
A giant cross commemorating the victims of Stalin's terror 70 years after the worst of the purges has reached Moscow after a journey from northern Russia.

It was taken by boat from the Solovetsky Islands, site of a prison camp, and will be erected at a former execution ground outside the capital.

An estimated 20,000 people, 1,000 of them Christians, were executed at the Butovo range between 1937 and 1938.

The Siberian cedar cross is 12.5m (41 feet) high and 7.6m (25 feet) wide.
