I don't believe many of us in America think much about it when we see someone wearing a cross necklace, or wearing a cross ring. However, I think as a Christian we should! Are you aware that a law suit is being fought right now in Great Britain over two ladies who were dismissed from their job due to wearing a cross necklace?
CNN reports on their belief blog
"London (CNN) – Christian activists in Britain are furious at the arguments their government will use against them when Europe’s highest court considers whether employees have the right to wear crosses that show over their uniforms.
Britain will argue that the two Christian women at the center of the case had the option of quitting their jobs and working elsewhere, so they are not covered by European human rights law, according to legal papers obtained by CNN.
“Employees who face work requirements incompatible with their faith, and have the option of resigning and seeking alternative employment, cannot claim for a breach of Article 9″ of the European Convention on Human Rights, Britain will argue.
The government will also say that wearing a cross is not a requirement of Christianity, so wearing one in public is not protected by the law."

Wow! How amazing that they are being denied the right or freedom to wear a cross necklace! If this stands in Great Britain, when will our rights here in America be challenged. I am afraid that the greatest danger to our Christian faith is not apathy, or uncaring attitude it is the attitude of having to be "politically correct" to everyone except a person of Christian religion. The media outcry and negative attacks spewed at Christian people when they discuss what they believe, are shocking. No tolerance is given to a person of faith, for their beliefs if it is against the "politically correctness" of not offending anyone.
I am afraid that our Christian freedoms are being taken away from us very slowly and quietly all under this disguise.
So ladies I encourage you not to take for granted your rights to wear your cross necklaces proudly! Remember what it stands for.
