Thanks, Bill
My black coworker told me it symbolizes the Kkk's presence.

What a wonderful story. I wish we could here more of these kinds of stories in the news.

I don't know about the KKK reference. Seems to me that it would be strange to put up three crosses that remind people of Jesus a lot more than racism and the KKK. Plus, who in their right mind wouldn't have taken the crosses down years ago if that was the case? There would be major protests if they left up and that was the reason. And they wouldn't be all over the U.S. and in two foreign countries.

Default Three Crosses . . .

This is an interesting story. Thanks for sharing with us.

As far as a KKK reference, I thought their symbol was one (1) burning cross? The crosses are not on fire, right? They are most like, as everyone mentioned, relevant to the Bible/Jesus.

Great ?, thanks for the link. Are we agreeing then; that the blue is so pale it appears white?

Big crosses? Don't forget about the Mojave Desert memorial. It's not as physically big as some of these other ones, but it has been commenmorating the sacrifice of World War I veterans 70+ years.

Realize this is an old thread but here goes. The Joel Osteen Church out in Texas is said to be the largest church in the country and they do not have any cross symbols in their church.
Just like # 13 said, some people have a very different impression. How terrible if many who travel these highways see the oversized crosses and think that it is the modern white man's way of putting up a warning to blacks [ a kkk symbol ] that it is still a white mans world.
On the other hand several responders didn't seem to know what to make of the three crosses. There may well be other ways to communicate the purpose and meaning of Christ's life that would speak more clearly to modern man.
