the cross

Of all religious symbols the cross, to my mind, is the most damning and, in it's way, misleading (at least as far as Christ is concerned).  The cross represents the material world and the limited perception afforded us simple humans under the constraints of time and space. The cross is the instrument of temporary victory enjoyed by the forces of government and religion who, if the gospels are to be believed, together perpetrated one of the most egregious injustices ever conceived and executed by their institutions. Putting aside the divinity question, the murder of Jesus and the fecklessness of the leadership of the day is one of the most radical and subversive stories ever told and should give every thinking citizen pause before they entrust anything to a government or religious leader. The fact that a unique religion, professing to follow God, was born from this event is one of the eternal mysteries and can not be rationally explained by anyone who's read the text and imbibed the full, inscrutable message of The Passion. The barbarity continues to this day and the cross holds fast.
