Article: Crucifix Ruling Seen as Severing Italy From Roots

This article reminds me of a controversy that I had read about the symbol of the region of Vendée in France. Here is the quote: “The symbol of Vendée is a matter of controversy. In March 1999, the association Une Vendée pour tous les Vendéens served a writ on the General Council because of its logotype. 

“The cross was considered as a religious symbol in contradiction with the state secularity (in France, state and religion have been separated since 1905). The court of Nantes, however, validated the logotype and stated: ‘The logotype does not refer to religion but to history.'”

It might help enlighten the Italians — it is not a matter of religion but of history — you cannot deny history.
