Volunteers have criticised the Red Cross charity after receiving a communication telling them to remove crucifixes from the walls of their branches as the organisation looks to become more secular. The Belgian branches of the international aid organisation received an email from the Provincial Committee of the Red Cross in Liège to remove all crucifixes. André Rouffart, president of the Red Cross in Verviers, said: We were asked to respect the principles of the Red Cross, and not to distinguish between race or religious belief 7sur7 reports.
Mr. Rouffart said there had been pushback from volunteers and other members on the issue but downplayed the issue, saying: I think its a storm in a teacup.
Several volunteers spoke to Belgian broadcaster RTL and expressed hostility to the move, with one saying: Let things remain as they are. We used to say Christmas holidays, now its winter holidays. The Christmas market in Brussels has become the Winter Pleasures.
For a certain part of the population because of the Muslims the crosses were removed in the Red Cross houses and, more particularly, in that of Verviers, the volunteer added.

Put crescents on the vans, too.
Don’t they have to get rid of the red cross first? Red crescent? Red sickle? Red Alfred E. Newman?
Um, Red CROSS! It’s like KFC being asked not to mention that their product is chicken.
Typical Soros organization.
>>Um, Red CROSS! Its like KFC being asked not to mention that their product is chicken.
or that it is fried
But they did just that when they switched from Kentucky Fried Chicken to KFC.
The organization originated in Switzerland that has a red flag including a white cross.
The new organization reversed the colors on the Swiss flag and became the Red Cross
The Salvation Army is still a Christian organization. The Red Cross diverts donations intended for victims of disasters, and sends it to the perpetrators of the disasters.
Mind you, I'm not siding with the a-holes who are doing the complaining but there is a difference between a cross and a Crucifix.
That’s the health Nazis for you. Nobody said that they had to stop using the word “fried”, but the health Nazi whisper campaign started demonizing fried foods and, voila! the word fried disappears. I’m a grown ass man, I’ll decide what I eat.
please provide a citation for that slander
Well, now it’s asking that crucifixes be removed. Later, it’ll be asking to have the cross removed. It’s incrementalism, and it’s insidious and relentless.
And the Red Cross wants to remove The Cross because they are CHICKEN!
Once all the Crosses are removed they then will identify as RED COMMUNIST!
Just another continuation of what Nikita Khrushchev promised we will destroy you from within.
Wait for it...Switzerland being intimidated to change its flag, because dim-bulb libs eventually discover they’re offended by it.
In Houston there is a fast food chain that dates back to the 1920s. James Coney Island.
They are famous for hot dogs and chili dogs.
A few years ago, they changed the red-white-and-blue color scheme for tan and red and changed the name to JCIG (James Coney Island Grill) and tried push salads and plate dining instead.
90 years of history in the junk pile.
It’s still representative of Christianity is it not?
Who would ever complain about this? The obvious solution is to stop volunteering.
Am I missing something here?
I will never again give another dime or a drop of blood to the Red Cross.
tou forgot Red HAMMER and CYCLE UNDER A RED STAR
