UK: Cross is removed from crematorium in case it offends non-religious mourners

A LABOUR council was blasted today for ditching their crematorium’s Christian cross – in case it offends non-religious mourners.

  • I’ve never quite understood that sort of reasoning. If people are non-religious or atheist, then that means they don’t believe in God — God is a myth or a fairy tale. In other words He is completely innocuous, sorta like Santa Claus or the tooth fairy.

    But when they demand the removal of religious symbols from public spaces, it evidences that they do in fact attach some sort of invisible “supernatural” power to those symbols. As if two pieces of lumber nailed together crosswise have the ability to bring people “bad luck”, or “good luck” as the case may.

    Kinda makes me wonder who is more motivated by superstition, religious people or atheists.

      They are not atheists, they are anti-theists.

        No, they’re just strutting little Hitlers, or to the rest of us they are just assholes who are miserable in their own lives and they want to kill all the joys in life that they can.

    Why should this be surprising? The future of the UK is here in this photo:

    Not the first. In 2012 at Heycombe Cemetery Crematorium, Bath, Somerset , a 50-year-old window with an etched cross was removed despite there never having been any objections to its presence.

    I guess they’ll have to replace the chair with a cross on the splat.
    The altar will have to go – look at all those inlay crosses bordering the three panels.
