(Worthy News) - The Belgian branches of the Red Cross have been told they must remove the organization's iconic red crosses from building walls amid concerns that the Christian symbol will offend non-Christians.
Breitbart News reported Monday on a translation of a 7sur7 article where André Rouffart, president of the Red Cross in Verviers, reveals that the Belgian branches were asked by the Provincial Committee of the Red Cross in Liège to "respect the principles of the Red Cross" of religious neutrality and remove the cross because it might offend Muslims.
The Red Cross was founded in the 19th century by Jean-Henry Dunant, a devout Christian who was also part of the creation of the Young Men's Christian Association. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]
