My wife is Catholic so we have every kind of Christian icon you can have in the house and outside in the yard for decoration. I also have a Buddha statue in the yard and a pagan tombstone. I also have Native American artifacts in the house. That's all they are---DECORATIONS. I forgot, my wife has a dildo that looks like the Virgin Mary she used to use to get to heaven.  :shock:  :rollin:  Solitary

I know plenty I people who wear a crucifix because it is simple and symmetrical and no other reason, even though I would never wear one myself.
The shape of it makes it hang well between a woman's cleavage.

Nah, I think it would clash with my gurney and needle jewelry.

And need of solace, we grew self-deceived,

And what we had imagined we believed."

Apparently some jews wear crosses despite being jewish. Back before I ditched my cross, I was asked if I was jewish. I said, "don't you see my cross? I'm christian" She said that even though she was jewish she sometimes wears a cross to fit in, it looks good, etc. And she asked me because my last name is Polish and I live in a town that a good portion is Jewish, she figured that I was.

Lol I don't think the cross is strictly a symbol of western culture. A girl I once dated briefly was actually born in Iraq, and lived there for a while, she wore the cross and so did her family. She said that the remaining Christians there all wore the cross for sectarian identification and to retain their identity as Christians. But even though she wore the cross she was a secular person and so was her family.

I think that saying the cross is a symbol of western culture, strictly, is a misconception.

I'd probably lose my job if I wore something like that. Sad but true.

No.  I also don't wear guillotines, iron maidens, racks, brazen bulls, a pillory, thumbscrews, or other torture devices for decorative purposes.

I do own a few simple necklaces, a very plain watch, and one bracelet that my in laws keep giving me charms for (so I feel obligated to wear it now and then).  I also like engraved rings, but only own one.

I wonder where the origins of human self-decoration through piercings, jewelery, tattoos etc. really started a lot of info is conflicting.

On CF, I've heard of perhaps one atheist that wore religious bling. That's assuming the Christian wasn't lying to me.

I wear the three symbols on my avatar as pendants: Peace, Life, and Diversity. On a couple of occasions my Ankh has been mistaken for a cross, but I'm always quick to correct the notion.

No, I do not wear any type of jewelry including time jewelry. I do have jackets and pants with zippers.
