“I very much regret such developments as happening in England. I myself used to live in that country and witnessed the way in which liberal and anti-Christian norms conquering ever greater areas in the public space. Because these people have not experienced persecution against the Church, they do not know what it is when your crosses are torn away from you
A grave mistake is made by today’s Western liberals who actually impose on free people the standards of totalitarian regime.
I believe it is a sign of some madness and extreme moral decay when such norms are not only introduced but even discussed. What is wrong with a cross worn on one’s neck? Who and how can it harm? Why one can wear beads, an amulet, an image of some variety singer but a believer cannot put on an underwear cross? We will never agree with it and will fight against it” – Metropolitan Hilarion, source.
Metropolitan Hilarion is referring to this; the ban on Christian crosses in workplace.
