OK, so it's your opinion that a cross represents fear....<quoted text> Teacher's cannot go to school and say Ford is better than Chev, that comes down to personal opinion, hence religion is the same, it is a personal belief. It is not fact, it is an opinion.
If it was scientific fact than of course you would not be having this debate.
A cross to me, regardless of it's intention wreaks of torture . It is a symbol of fear , it is a symbol of pain.
So then schools should cater to your needs & forget everyone else that sees it as a symbol of Jesus...
BTW - Ford is better.
