RS, I think you might find the Wiccans claim the pentagram. You can always piss off the Christians by adopting a "Celtic Cross" - predates Christianity in Northern Europe by a significant margin.

Either way you go, the smart money is on a tattoo, you can hardly be told to take it off. These so-called devout christians who wear a little cross on a necklace - NO GENUINE COMMITMENT!

I will be mainly attending my place of work thusly...



I will add to my 'beware of the dog' sign this little ditty...



Then no one should be 'outraged' by the simple expedient of wearing a symbol to do with your faith...

I trust this mad woman will be embarking on a similar crusade to rid the country of our other symbols? Ie various sports brands or other trademarks that adorne somany now adays?

Trust me I don't need a Celtic Cross to piss off Xtians.

To be honest, unless there is a genuine H&S aspect to it, I dont see why anyone makes a big deal about it. If someone is offended by my religion, it is their problem, not mine.

But equally, if your employer doesnt like your necklace, wear it inside your shirt.

Funny thing, religious symbolism. I have a "triplehorn" tattoo. Some people think it is a Nazi symbol, Christians think it is a "Holy Trinity" thing. Few people recognise it for what it is - Odinist.

I think she has a point, we should be striving for a secular public life (private matters are yours) however where Christians get all bent out of shape is that there is NO need in the religion, even as a custom, to wear a Cross.
Other religions do have it written in the scriptures, bangles and knives for Sikhs for example. Some see it as pandering to ethnic minorities but as I said before show me where in the Bible it says you must wear a cross.

Religion, you'd have thought by the 21st Century we'd have fucking moved on!

Just noticed it's the NAAFI, I'd bang it!

Llech, As I said before, want to prove commitment and your boss doesnt like your jewelry, get it tattooed on. I know a lot of pagans with (for example) molnjir tattoed on thier chest. Wiccans with a Pentagram tattoo etc. Funny how Christians are so keen to show their commitment but with something they can take off at any time (apart from one guy I met in Egypt - Coptic Christians tend to be tattooed with religious symbology, despite living in a society where they are genuinely liable to be persecuted for it - thats commitment)
