Louisiana pastor who erected third-largest cross in US busted for possession of meth: report

Published

A pastor in Louisiana who erected the third-largest cross in America at his church is being held at the Bossier Maximum Security Facility after being arrested on methamphetamine charges, the Shreveport Times reported Friday.

Andy C. Harris, 56, was the senior pastor at The Church of the Cross, an Assemblies of God congregation where Harris had preached since 1996.

Church officials confirmed Harris resigned and deleted online references to Harris on the church’s website and social media accounts.

The former pastor had been living in a 3,519-square-foot home, according to property records. It was at his home that Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives allegedly discovered 3.4 grams of meth along with smoking and snorting paraphernalia.

“It was under Harris’ administration that the 199-foot-tall cross was erected on church property,” ArkLaTex reported. “The cross – which in the United States is only shorter than one in Corpus Christi, Texas (210′) and St. Augustine, Florida (208′), was not without controversy.

The planned cross violated zoning restrictions, which the church appealed to the Bossier Parish Police Jury.

“The common man on the street is going to be looking at who’s for the cross and who’s not, and we all understand the ramifications,” Pastor Harris warned.

The church was subsequently granted a zoning exemption from local authorities.

Emerson College was blasted for leaving their own senator out of head-to-head matchups in their latest nationwide poll.

But the poll did not even test Warren in head-to-head matchups with Trump.

Published

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) met with Culinary Union members in Las Vegas, Nevada Tuesday night during the CNN town hall for her opponents. The Culinary Union is made up of the over 60,000 hotel housekeepers, bartenders, restaurant and casino workers, and others who make up the backbone of the entire city. Many members are Spanish-speaking and people of color, yet it was still puzzling why Klobuchar began her speech with a bizarre anecdote.

According to Culinary members and reporters present, she began by saying, "My name is Amy, but when I was in fourth grade Spanish they gave me the name Elena."
