  • I've wondered about that too. The thought of wearing a little torture and murder device as jewelry is creepy.

  • I've often wondered that myself - especially about those multi-million dollar crosses that we see along the highway in my area.  My husband always quips that it shows that they are better Christians than anyone else because their cross is bigger.  I always wonder why they'd choose to spend so much money on a garish symbol when it could be used to stock soup kitchens or house a few homeless - the kind of loving, selfless kindness that their savior was supposed to have demanded.

  • I've always found crucifixes & crosses "creepy" for that reason. And, I also used to live in an area where huge crosses were put up. The worst was done by this mega-church on a interstate turn off. It was especially horrible at night, the huge cross main cross, and 2 smaller ones beside it, would be lit up & it would literally look like you're going to crash into this huge cross trying to get off the interstate.

  • lol- i can see your point.

    however, when i was a christian (lutheran to be exact, which makes a difference as most lutherans are crucifix people) i wore a cross on a necklace. the cross symbolizes the importance of Jesus' sacrifice and the redemption of mankind, and, admittedly, i got the "look at me im proudly representing my religion" factor as well.

  • too true


    why not concentrate on how he lived his whole life
    and not the last moments and how evil humans can be to each other, torturing him (and many others in that day and time)
