DALLAS -
A 19-year-old from Saginaw began his journey to the nation's capitol on Thursday. He plans to walk there with the weight of a cross on his shoulders.

Junior Garcia from The Oasis Church plans to walk roughly 12 hours per day for the next five weeks to draw the attention of America back to the cross of Jesus Christ, according to Pastor Randy Lemme.

A support team will follow him on foot and on a cart and bus. They'll help shield him from traffic, especially on busy highways.

Once Garcia arrives in Washington, a prayer service will be held at the White House.

His journey will also raise money for Speed the Light, an Assembly of God Missions giving program that will buy a car for a missionary in Mexico, Lemme said.

Now I'm all for doing a protest or whatever. But when they interviewed the pastor on my local news he seem to be talking for the boy and I have a hunch of what they really want to convey by getting america back on the cross.

Yup. Someone pointed out on my local news that he was on highways without any reflective clothing. Although I guess he has police escorts.

Walking 12 miles a day is tiring enough, doing it while carrying a cross? Yikes.

Why doesn't this kid just do something better if he wants to spread his message, like go help some people?

really good exercise though. it's something i would like to do (aside from the cross-carrying part) if i had the time and money and lack of obligations to do it.

Well, considering the CROSS....he was crucified. There are people who don't know that? Not trying to be a dick but I've NEVER met someone who didn't know that.

If religion was a woman, these types of ignorant posts would not be tolerated. GAF is a community where people should get along, but instead some are treated like second class citizens and discriminated against, and lampooned/ridiculed; people have feelings. It's outrageous

Being born a woman is not a choice.

Religion is a choice.

Not all choices are considered equal, don't pretend you think they are.

The only thing outrageous is your fallacious persecution syndrome.

He's going to take up a lane of traffic from Texas to D.C.? Why doesn't he just call in a bomb threat to an airport everyday if he want's to piss that many people off?
