Rusk Christian t-shirts take off

Tuesday, February 18, 2014 - 11:26pm

A few weeks ago, we brought you the story about a group of strong-willed students in Rusk who decided to stand up for their faith after a high school teacher was told to take down a Christian poster in her classroom.

They started selling red t-shirts promoting their faith, and half a month later, their statement has gone global.

Their Facebook page is nearing 11,000 likes, and they have a number of orders ready to be shipped all over the country, and areas outside the country

When the Franks family first started, the goal was to have 100 shirts ordered, three weeks later, they're nearing 3,000.

"We thought well we'll see where this goes, within a few days it just, bam, bam, bam, bam and it was busted wide open," said Noel Franks.

It's been a family effort, along with close friends to help expedite the process, and deliver shirts across town, or as far away as Norway.

"Kind of a really good experience because it kind of makes you think about other people and then they want to help out too," said Abby, Noel's daughter.

"I can't really put into words I mean just it's indescribable i mean, just the love and the passion we have as a family and then our friends I mean it's just like a big family," said Cameron, the eldest son who fist came up with this idea.

The poster, which had to be taken down at Rusk High School, now hangs in the Franks' house, a reminder of where this movement began, and why they continue to press forward.

"This is what it's about, this is how it started, this is what we're supporting and we're gonna stick with it" said Cameron.
