Religion is part of man's being

Regarding the British government's decision to argue at the European Court of Human Rights that Christians do not have the right to wear a cross at work - religion is part of man's being and, thus, there can never be any total separation of church and state. Where this is taking place, man is headed for anarchy, chaos, and disaster.

The cross is the sign of the passion and, at the same time, it is a sign of the resurrection. It is, so to speak, the saving staff that God holds to us, the bridge by which we can pass over the abyss of death. The cross displays what is distinctively Christian. It is also a symbol of universal love.

The most basic Christian gesture in prayer is the sign of the cross. Let us fight to keep our religious signs and symbols from the atheistic clutches of Big Brother in this Orwellian age.
