Cross that off bakery list
IT IS not the bun that is the problem.
Buns were made almost 365 days a year, more than 70 years ago, when I was a child and well before that too.
They caused no problem, as they were not marked with a cross.
Back then, the bakeries showed some RESPECT.
Buns were only marked
with the cross a week or so before Easter. The cross WAS a symbol of the approaching Christian Good Friday.
THAT is why Christians of all denominations “feel” it is out of taste to sell buns with crosses, straight after Christmas.
Leave the cross off them and people do not mind.
Crosses are placed on graves. They dot the roadways where someone died in an accident. People get upset when these crosses are not respected and are destroyed.
Can you relate to how those affected people “feel”?
That is how Christians “feel” about buns marked with crosses out of season. Bakeries that are doing this are bringing our standards down.
They should go back to the true symbol of Easter buns and show respect; as it once was, by only marking the cross when Easter is near.
Tinsel is just tinsel. It is not marked with a cross.
There is nothing remotely religious or Christian about it; so why would anyone get upset about it being used outside of Christmas.
We are free to use it whenever.
Can you now see the monumental problem this generation has inherited – lack of respect. R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
Why do bakeries do it? For the same reason as louts do.
