St. Louis Cardinal Fan Upset At Cross on Pitchers Mound - "Muslims (might) use that mound".

Posted by Brian

To the so-called Cardinal fan who is insulted by the sign of a cross on the pitchers mound in St. Louis:

GET OVER IT!

Your country is crumbling around you.  Your rights are being taken away from you at a breakneck pace. Politicians, the media, and your fellow countrymen are waging a war on the the Constitution and the Judeo-Christian moorings on which it was founded, all while bending over and grabbing their ankles at every perceived slight from Islamists who push for sharia law in YOUR country!

And you have your panties in a wad over THIS.  Stand up and grow a pair!

Oh, by the way! Going into today, the Cardinal's are tied for the best record in baseball.  Not that I think the cross has anything to do with it, but knowing the superstitious nature of pro ballplayers, if it works for them, who am I to say it doesn't give them the little something extra to fall back on late in the ballgame, or the season.

WHY IS THERE A ‘CHRISTIAN’ CROSS AND THE NO. 6 DRAWN INTO THE CARDINALS PITCHER’S MOUND AT BUSCH STADIUM?

At least one St. Louis Cardinals fan is upset that the team would allow religious symbols to be drawn into the pitcher’s mound at Busch Stadium.  Before home games, a groundskeeper has regularly drawn a “Christian” cross and what some claim is  the No. 6 for the late Cardinals great Stan Musial on the mound behind the rubber (though it looks like the Christian “fish” symbol), the Yahoo! Sports blog “Big League Stew” reports.

The symbols have reportedly been drawn when various pitchers have taken the mound. Some Cardinals players are outspoken about their faith and even Cardinals manager Mike Matheny proudly proclaims “Jesus Christ is at the center of my life.”
