Christianity Supressed Again

Telegraph: Cross removed from crematorium chapel By Richard Savill
A wooden cross has been removed from the wall of a crematorium chapel "to cater for everyone in a diverse multi-faith society". Torbay council, in Devon, has also renamed the building a "ceremony hall". The Rev Anthony Macey, vicar of nearby Cockington and Chelston, discovered that the 5ft cross had been taken down when he arrived to conduct a funeral. No other religions had complained about the cross, he said, and he hoped the council would reconsider its decision. [...] Alan Faulkner, the executive member for environmental services of the Liberal Democrat-controlled council, said: "We live in a diverse multi faith society and many people have no specific beliefs at all."
Thus the logical thing to do is to trample on those who DO have specific beliefs.
"The facility at Torquay crematorium is a ceremony hall. It is not a chapel and it is not consecrated."
