Political correctness run amuck

College Removes Cross from Chapel
CBN News, October 27, 2006 -- The nation's second oldest college is removing the cross from its historic chapel.

Wren Chapel sits on the campus of William and Mary in Virginia.

According to, the cross was removed to ensure the space is seen as non-denominational.

The website reports that the cross will be returned to the altar for anyone who wants to use it for services, private prayer and events.

William and Mary was founded in the late 1600's and was associated with the Anglican Church.

The chapel is one of the college's original buildings.

CBN News called the college's media director for a comment, but our calls were not returned.

An example of the continuing decline of the faith of our separated brethren.

This is very sad for preservationists as well as Christians. It turns an historic chapel into a meeting hall.

Yale still has a cross on at least one of its chapels.

I am surprised that the area preservation society allowed the cross to be removed. Heavens.
