Ask a silly question...
WHY IS IT AUTOMATICALLY ASSUMED THAT CHRISTIANS WERE INVOLVED IN THIS?!??!
ROMAN CATHOLICS ALSO USE THE CROSS AS A SYMBOL!!!! [emphasis original]
And to this I can only respond: Ralph, I think you just answered your own question. Now, like VorJack, I have to admit that I find lots of the internal spats between subtle variations of the same faith to be supremely uninteresting. As far as I'm concerned Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Greek Orthodox, Protestants, and Mormons are all Christians. Christians with different doctrines, yes, but part of the same family. Nevertheless, Ralph, I do have to observe that your vehement eagerness to reject Roman Catholicism probably helps explain- if only a little- why in this case folks are looking in your general direction.**
I'm just sayin' is all.
* I should probably note that Ralph's blog is such an eye searing nightmare that it's either a really, really involved work of parody, or he's on roughly the same level as Greg Buell or Gene Ray. I'm more or less going to assume the former because I prefer not to be terrified of my neighbors.
** It's probably also that the Air Force Academy previously got in trouble for reports that evangelical Christianity was being pushed on cadets so, you know, it's fairly natural- though not necessarily fair- for people to suspect that group in this case.
