(Worthy News) - A Scottish government report has revealed that Christian crosses are being removed inside chapels during funeral services so as to not be offensive to atheists and non-Christians.

The Scottish Inspector of Crematoria revealed in the July 20 report on practices and issues surrounding funerals services in the country that there are concerns over the "lack of inclusive space" for people not of the Christian faith.

"There have also been concerns raised over the presence of Christian religious symbols, particularly the 'cross' in chapels and gardens of remembrance. There have been a number of occasions where at the request of applicants steps have been taken (where practical) to remove or conceal the cross (in chapel) for the duration of the service," the report explained.

  1. These so-called "churches" have already fallen away. We are not to compromise our beliefs for what the world thinks.
    I stand on his promises for I know they are true. What do they stand on?
