Double Standard For Christians

This kind of discrimination is an unspoken - accepted norm in America already and it could get much worse sooner than we expect (particularly if someone like Obama is elected).

LONDON, January 16, 2008 ( - A court ruling last week concluded that British Airways (BA) did not engage in unlawful discrimination when it suspended an employee for refusing to hide a cross necklace while at work, even though symbols of other religions are permitted.
I have a friend who works at a major corporation who told me the same thing - crosses are not allowed to be displayed at his workplace (forget a crucifix) yet their cafeteria is routinely decorated with symbolism from other religions (this is company sponsored decoration). At school, my 8 year old only learns about Kwanza, Hannukah and global warming. He's had probably a dozen different math assignments where the 'fun' objects they're counting are religious symbols from various religions. One was a menorah counting the candles etc... This is in regular public school. I wonder when they're planning to count the rosary beads?
