It doesn’t bother me at all, frankly.
I was born and raised Catholic, went to Catholic school my entire life and I’m atheist. The cross has so much more meaning that pre-dates Christianity so it has no religious significance in my eyes when it’s in fashion. The joining of two lines at right angles doesn’t have to immediately scream “OMG CHRISTIAN SYMBOLISM”.
Now, when people sell “rosaries” as necklaces, I can see where that would be a bit offensive to a devout Christian because that’s definitely very Catholic oriented. Personally, I steer clear of crosses in my clothing and accessories. It just holds a lot of negative connotations for me from my childhood and I prefer not to reflect on that.posted almost 4 years ago
True..I guess the rosary definitely is more serious then the cross, I never knew the cross pre-dates Christianity..that’s very interesting, I also respect you being an atheist but out of curiosity, why did you become one after growing up in such a Catholic environment?posted almost 4 years ago
