Red Cross Demands Branches Remove Crucifixes to Be More Secular

Volunteers have criticised the Red Cross charity after receiving a communication telling them to remove crucifixes from the walls of their branches as the organisation looks to become more secular.

I assume a name change is in order then.

    They’re just after the blood.

    I am so heartily sick of civilisation bending over backwards to accomodate the whims of retarded adherants to 7th century, 3rd world cultures.

  • Because the Red Cross is a bunch of Bible thumpers? They’re already 100% secular, the only thing is the symbol. And where did the symbol come from, was it a Church once upon a time? Who knows, who cares.

    But this is instructive, it doesn’t matter how much you accommodate militant atheists, it’s never enough — it will never be enough. To be enough for a militant atheist to be satisfied you would have to invent a mind-reading machine whereby every thought of every human being on earth could be recorded and scrutinized and filtered for any thought about God, religion, etc. And even if we were to achieve that impossible goal, and we achieved 100% compliance in thought word and deed from every human being, then the militant atheist would simply believe that the mind-reading machine was malfunctioning — God is still out there hiding under a rug somewhere and we have to keep searching for Him until we eliminate Him.

    You could say the same for Communists, and the same for Islamists — nothing you can do will ever satisfy their psycho-pathological ideologies. Because they are fundamentally unhappy people — they are in eternal NEED of an enemy to blame their unhappiness on, which is not caused by any externality but by their own twisted conscience-free thinking.

      The red cross symbol is the reverse swiss flag. chosen because of the original Geneva Convention of 1864.
      Absolutely nothing to do with religion.

        Another inconvenient truth!

    Maybe the RED CROSS needs to be bigger and totally
    NON Secular.

    Maybe we need 2 Red Cross organizations.

    Keep in mind the Red Cross have a history of anti-semitism. They inspected Thersienstadt concentration camp during the Holocaust and said “looks OK to us”

    Keep in mind the Red Cross fought to exclude Israel’s Magen David Adom with a sh*tload of BS excuses including the Star of David not being an acceptable symbol and after lots of pressure only allowing Israel to join under a “Red Diamond” symbol. They seemed to have no issue with the “Red Crescent” symbol.

    Keep in mind the Canadian Red Cross screwed up the Canadian blood distribution system so badly – that blood distribution in Canada was removed from their jurisdiction.

      Wasn’t the screw up in the blood system caused by the fact that they were not permitted to discriminate against homosexual men? I used to give blood pretty regularly and then I lived in England in 1993-1995. After I got bad they wouldn’t let me anymore because I might be a mad cow.

        They also bought blood (due to Canadian shortage) obtained from the prison population in Arkansas that subsequently caused deaths from AIDS and Hepatitis.
        Another Clinton scandal.

    I save more money every year as I eliminate gifts to charities that have gone sjw. The nieces and nephews will be pleased to know that it is just about zero now. Of course if they piss me off the guy begging outside the local is libel to get everything.

    The Red Cross is merely transitioning its entirety to the Red Cresent.
