Catholic and Protestant Hospitals in Europe face lawsuits if they have Crucifixes in their buildings?

The UK Daily Mail has this story:

Organisations which hang crucifixes on walls could be sued if they upset atheists under equality laws proposed by the European Union.

Any group offering a service to the public, including hospitals, charities, businesses and prisons, would be at risk.

Legislation may also allow Christians to bring an action against a hotel if it displayed something they deemed offensive - such as a poster for the 1979 Monty Python film The Life Of Brian.

There are already laws banning harassment in the workplace, but the new Brussels regulations are designed to offer people protection from providers of goods and services. . . . .

A private business can and should do as they wish; display as they wish regarding their religious views or even political views.

If an entity is receiving government pluralistic tax dollars, then in the interest of the people's money, no religious views can be displayed as it is not representative of society.

While it may be a segment of the society, it is not ALL of society being represented.

Upholding our Constitution's freedoms is more important than endorsing ideology of any kind.

Freedom belongs to every human being, not just those of a particular subjective view of life.
