Persecuted for his cross: Electrician told he faces the sack for Christian symbol on his van dashboard

An electrician faces the sack for displaying a small palm cross on the dashboard of his company van.

Former soldier Colin Atkinson has been summoned to a disciplinary hearing by the giant housing association where he has been employed for 15 years because he refuses to remove the symbol.

Mr Atkinson, a regular worshipper at church, said: ‘The treatment of Christians in this country is becoming diabolical…but I will stand up for my faith.’

Throughout his time at work, he has had an 8in-long cross made from woven palm leaves attached to the dashboard shelf below his windscreen without receiving a single complaint. (Daily Mail)

  1. I bet if it was any sort of islamic symbol his employers wouldn’t be gamed to make a similar threat.

    But then again, if he was a muslim, he wouldn’t be working and would only be collecting dole payments, so I guess my statement is moot…

  2. ‘WDH has a stance of neutrality. We now have different faiths, new emerging cultures. We have to be respectful of all views and beliefs.’

    As WDH turns a blind eye to islam while simultaneously breaking a Christian’s cross.

    Ummm yahuh. Welcome to the New World Administrative Order. Please check your Reason at the door, do as you are told by your higher ups and all will be peaceful and unifying.
    Funny how Jews and Christians get regressed and despiritualized under the ‘unity in diversity’ regime. Well, we all know that islam is a forward progression of ‘god’s’ revelation on earth, so obviously islam is better than Judaism and Christianity. It’s just logical progression of faith. Right?

    And thus Christianity is being smashed on the altar of spiritual precedence to be replaced with the ‘accepted’ successor of Jesus, mohammad and his ‘issa’, the replacement jesus.

    It has always been about getting Christians to accept mohammad and desensitizing the West in preparation for muslim migration under the banner of ‘inclusiveness’.

  3. Asking someone to take down a Cross is , in my mind, just as symbolic as burning a Koran. So now you know what passes for Law in the UK, Koran burning punishable by Goal time, Cross RETENTION punishable by loss of Job.
    The UK is an Islamophile BASKET CASE . Get out while you can before they impose hand chopping and stoning and the Dhimmie Jizaz on you. All in the name of TOLERANCE of course which is the Moonbat euphemism for bowing down to Islam.

  4. As long as the invaders walk around in their black sacks as a display of their religion (and conquest) no person of any other religion should be limited in the expression of their religion either.

    Come on Brits, man up and support this guy.

  5. The story gets even more insane, the person who decided the Cross should be banned has a picture of che guevara on his desk!

  6. Where is this firm and where to we write our protest letters to them. Put them in the hot seat. This is a Christian country when I last looked.
