Funeral Homes In Scotland Are Covering Or Removing Crosses Because Some People Find Them ‘Offensive’

Christianity in the UK is in terminal decline. While there have been reports of minor increases in Christian practice, as Shoebat.com reported, this appears merely to be a part of the “dead cat bounce” phenomenon, where there are small increases in a systemic decline while not stopping the decline.

Another indication of this came in Scotland, where Christian symbols are being covered or removed because some people are ‘offended’ by their presence:

Christian symbols are being hidden or removed at funeral services in Scotland for fear that they will cause offence, it has emerged.

The Scottish Inspector of Crematoria reports that demands for the removal of Bibles and crosses by humanists and other minorities are on the rise.

The Humanist Society of Scotland has said failure to remove Christian symbols leaves their members “open to discrimination” under the Equality Act.

In his annual report, Robert Swanson wrote that concerns have been raised over “the presence of Christian religious symbols, particularly the ‘cross’ in chapels and gardens of remembrance”.

“There have been a number of occasions where at the request of applicants steps have been taken (where practical) to remove or conceal the cross for the duration of the service.”

Ciarán Kelly, a Deputy Director at The Christian Institute, warned against “creeping secularisation”.

He said: “It should hardly be surprising to anyone that in a country with our Christian heritage the cross of Christ will be visible in public places, especially somewhere like a crematorium.

“It seems that steps have already been taken to reasonably accommodate those few people with concerns. We should be wary of creeping secularisation in the guise of ‘equality’.”

The cross is increasingly being airbrushed from public life to avoid offending people.

Last year, budget supermarket Lidl came under fire for airbrushing images of the cross from its products.

Lidl’s range of Greek foods features images of the famous Anastasis Church in Santorini, with its distinctive blue dome roof.

However, customers noticed that the crosses which usually adorn the dome and surrounding buildings had been edited out. (source)

This is not the sign of a culture that is reviving. It is the sign of a culture that is being attacked, that is dying, and that is being put to death by outside forces.

It is not enjoyable to discuss such a situation. However, it is an honest assessment, and as there has never before been more information available at a mere instant, it is even more critical than ever that one should face the reality of the situation, in this case being the state of Christianity in Albion.

Whether it is the Muslims, the nationalists, or both, the end is the same. It is a war on the Faith waged against her people because it is a war on the concept of truth itself as opposed to the absolute will of the self.
