Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow - 12/15/2011 4:30:00 AM An atheist group has sued a small town in Tennessee over a cross on a city water tower.

Several years ago, the residents of Whiteville raised money to erect a large cross atop the town`s water tower. Freedom From Religion Foundation objected, and finally Mayor James Bellar had one arm of the cross removed.

"As a result the people in Whiteville just more or less took it upon themselves to start a campaign to put crosses up all over this part of Tennessee that they could," the mayor explains. "And it`s just been like a crusade down here with people making crosses and sticking them in their yard, putting them on sides of buildings, and everything else."

In front of city hall, citizens placed other crosses on the right of way and the mayor put up a cross outside his business. That action made the atheist group angry, so they filed suit on behalf of a lone atheist.

"[In] the letters that I received originally, this person was identified as a `Whiteville resident and taxpayer,`" says Bellar. "In the lawsuit, that person has now morphed into a `John Doe who occasionally comes to Whiteville to transact business.`"

Pastor Drake says "we will use our Church, TV and Radio stations to fight those whom God calls Fools."

Drake does 15 one hour Live Christian TV and Radio shows around the World.

Drake indicated he has had a 5 1/2 X 3 foot lighted cross on the front lawn of his Buena Park home for several years, and recently installed a camera.
