Cross

I would never want to be a member of a group whose symbol was a guy nailed to two pieces of wood.

— George Carlin

If Jesus had been killed 20 years ago, Catholic school children would be wearing little Electric Chairs around their necks instead of crosses.

— Lenny Bruce

The Cross is a gibbet – rather an odd thing to make use of as a talisman against bad luck, if that is how we regard it. Or is it, instead, a cynical reminder that Virtue usually gets pilloried whenever it makes one of its occasional appearances in this world?

— Denis Johnston, The Brazen Horn
