I'll start by saying that I'm not the most religious of people... but whether it's a fashion statement or not, the cross MEANS something. Repeat: It has MEANING. HUGE meaning. It's not just some stupid trinket. It's a symbol - and a big one at that - of faith and of a desire to uphold beliefs that are designed to elevate, not tear down.Originally Posted by Magnum;3907556;
Let me put it another way: let's say he was wearing a swastika around his neck instead, and let's suppose he even said he was doing it because he thought it looked cool and no other reason. Don't you think people would still be outraged? And shouldn't they be?
The fact that self-centered, mean-spirited, lie-telling, boastful, arrogant Russell Hantz had one draped around his neck - for whatever reason - is hypocracy. I'm of a Christian faith... but that last thing I want is for anyone to think that Russell Hantz has any values that I prescribe to.
