Now that Christmas is over, Easter is the next big day of the Christian faith. In all of religion is there a more profound or embraced symbol than the cross?

It's worn by many as an icon of hope and even of goodness. For me personally, I don't see it that way, And yes, I can figure out the Christian faithful and their reason for using it. To them it means that the man they worship couldn't be killed, and as a part of their belief he is a divine being, the Lord God who will never die.

Just why the source of all creation would undergo the crucificion process in the first place is a topic for another essay. This is about what is allowed by faith as an active part of society.

What is actually held by this religious crux of Christianity is a perspective which believes that violent death and torture can be forgiven by the God who allowed his own horrific death for some unfathomable point.

For this reason, the symbol of the cross is the most horrendous of all religious concept, one which states that violence is ok.
