Vicar orders removal of 'unsuitable' crucifix from church - Telegraph
Rev Souter, formerly a cell biologist, said: "The crucifix expressed suffering, torment, pain and anguish. It was a scary image, particularly for children.
"It wasn't a suitable image for the outside of a church wanting to welcome worshippers. In fact, it was a real put-off.
"We're all about hope, encouragement and the joy of the Christian faith. We want to communicate good news, not bad news, so we need a more uplifting and inspiring symbol than execution on a cross."
Any bets that the Thursday Evening Growth Groups feature guitars and happy clapping? Weedy infantile all-things-bright-and beautiful content free religion, pah! Religion is about trying to make sense of death, pain and suffering or it is nothing at all.
