The Christian crucifix actually represents a condemnation of human rights and morality. After all, this religion’s imaginary God boasts about drowning nearly the entire population of humans on Earth—including innocent babies, children and loving parents—for being “wicked and evil”. Rather curious, since all of these “evil” people were created “in the perfect image” of their god. (I blame the “manufacturer” for an inferior “product”, not the product.)
Drowning us aside: This wrathful God also feels quite entitled to BURN US ALIVE—for all eternity—if we dare to not love and adore Him! (Whew, talk about an “abusive relationship”!)
But I think it is most appropriate that a crucifix—a violent means of execution—is the universal avatar chosen by Christians to symbolize their notion of “love and mercy”.
I shudder to think what Christians would be wearing around their necks if their Christ had been executed some other way…→
