A bishop is calling on Christians to wear crosses in public to demonstrate they "aren't going to disappear quietly from the market place".

The Bishop of Lichfield, the Rt Rev Jonathan Gledhill said Christians should wear them at work and not be intimidated into putting them away.

He also criticised councils which tried to "rebrand Christmas" for fear of offending other religions.
Such decisions were made out of "sheer ignorance," he said.

"Ethnic minorities are far more anxious about the rampant secularism and commercialism that erodes all Christian standards than they are about their host country properly celebrating its Christian foundations," he said.

The Lichfield Diocese serves Staffordshire, north Shropshire, and parts of the West Midlands.

I think he is right. Everyone should be proud of their religion and what they believe in.

surely a cross would be worn if one felt strongly about religion- which not a lot of ppl do these days. almost a fashion accessory now..

I agree, ppl should be able to wear ANY relgious symbols not just the cross, also agree the cross has become somewhat of a fashion accessory, as part of my job i have to ask ppl what religion they follow, you would think that the ones wearing a cross would be Christian but they answer they do not follow a relgion

That makes sense. As well as being a fashion accessory, it's still the best way to crucify somebody.

Who knows when you'll have to do that?

As for rebranding Christmas. Christmas has already been re-branded, let's face it it's not realy Christmas but due to consumarism, the present the tree it's all to do with sunworshipers and not the scriptures from the bible, so Christians themselves have re-branded Christmas, maybe the bishop look at that?

Vampires are rubbish anyway, all you have to do is stay at home and they won't be able to come in without an invite
