So Why The Cock?

So, why the cock?

We assumed it had something to do with farmers and weather and farmers and roosters??? Not so!

In the ninth century, Pope Nicholas decreed that every church in Europe should show a cock on its dome or steeple, as a reminder of Jesus' prophecy that the cock would not crow, until the disciple Peter had denounced Jesus three times (Luke 22:34). Because of this story, "weather cocks" have topped church steeples for centuries, both in Europe and in America.

So there you have it!
