The previous owners left a decent size pile of odds and ends in our current house when we bought it including a few religious objects. The first time we came to the house after closing, I don't think we were in the door more than 60 seconds when my wife pulled the crucifix off the wall and put it in the trash bag.
Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false and by the rulers as useful

No and no.  And that second statement is incredibly incorrect.  The Christian cross represents Christianity (obviously), not western culture.

But it has its share of the western way of life, historically ;)

Christianity is prevalent in the west, not the other way around.  But so what?

The only personal decoration I wear are bracelets that I get when I volunteer at festivals. So no, nothing religious or anything.

Holy Moley, what a troll-ey. You do realize that an upside down cross is considered a sacred symbol by Catholicism, right? Its because St. Peter choose to be crucified that way.

Oh, I see you're wearing a cross.  You must be from a western culture!

Why yes, I also march around holding this flag of my country, but you didn't notice.  I used to drag around 200 Kilo wooden cross, but with the flag and all, it was a bit much.  Then some people told me I was being pretentious dragging that wooden cross to the grocery store and into the movie theater, and I thought, "How are people supposed to know that I'm from a western culture if I don't drag this cross around."  Finally, my wife said, "Herman you look like an idiot dragging that cross to work.  Here!  I got you this little gold cross you can wear around your neck, so people know you are from a western culture.

What, they give you a choice?  How would you like to be crucified?  Right side up, upside down, or sideways?  

Well, upside down, of course!

According to legend, St. Peter considered himself unworthy to be crucified the same way as Jesus.
