Italy’s appeal to ban Christian symbol in schools reaps reward and guarantees right of religious expression for entire EU.

(Strasbourg, France)—Several years ago, a legal case was brought to European Union courts by a Finnish mother whose children objected to crucifixes present in Italian classrooms. The Italian government argued at that time that the crucifix was a “national symbol of culture, history, identity, tolerance and secularism.” (Photo: PA)

Now in a final ruling, The Telegraph reports that the EU court in Strasbourg has decided that “while the crucifix was above all a religious symbol, there was no evidence before the court that the display of such a symbol on classroom walls might have an influence on pupils.”

According to the report, the ruling will be binding on all 47 countries that are members of the Council of Europe.

I'm a retired guy who loves to get involved in community affairs and issues especially when I feel there is some injustice involved or that I have a valid point of view. I still believe that the pen is mightier than the sword although lately, I am wondering if this is still true.
