University Photoshops Crosses Off of Christian Football Fans’ Chests‏

Despite their team’s stellar playing record, a group of Louisiana State University football fans is less-than-enthusiastic after the public college altered a photo to digitally-erase crosses that were painted on their chests.

The Photoshopped image came to the fans’ attention after the university sent out an e-mail about the Tigers’ recent win on October 13. In the picture, the religious symbol was noticeably scrubbed off of the Christians’ bodies.

The men depicted in the image call themselves “The Painted Posse,” a group of believers who are also avid fans. They are known, as CampusReform.org notes, for painting their bodies with LSU colors and crosses and attending every home game. When they saw the photo, devoid of the crosses, they were stunned.

The school wasted no time in admitting that the crosses were purposefully removed and that the action was taken in an effort to avoid offending non-Christians.

So Christians offend people just by existing?

2:33 AM Atheists aren't the only non-Christians!! And secularism doesn't always equal atheism.

If the "PC Police" are so afraid of offending people, I'm surprised they showed people dressed only in body paint!

Or promoted a violent and often injurious (gasp) competitive (the horror) sport!

One day in an effort to avoid "offending" anyone the government will decree we are not allowed to talk, write, make art, drive, appear in public, go to church or any other activity that might offend someone. Now I’m sure they (our overlords) can do as they please, of course!

So basically we can only sit at home or die. I am sure they would prefer the latter!

Um... couldn't they just explain that the crosses are there because they're Christians...
Wouldn't that make sense?

I actually doubt it was Atheists this time. It was probably panty-waist PC school officials. Does this mean they are going to photoshop out any femal students wearing the hijab from now on?

So the school's action was to avoid offence?!? Doesn't look too successful. Who did they think was going to be offended? Since offense is in the eye of the beholder, how can you possibly know what someone will be offended by next? They actually caused offence by worrying about someone being offended by a Christian cross!

And in breaking news, University officials are now censoring campus news to make sure there is no mention of anything that anyone might find offensive.
You can collect your blank newspapers from all campus outlets.

More breaking news. LSU will no longer refer to Louisiana localities as 'parishes', nor to their NFL team by its name.

@Liz, no, because Islam IS Politically Correct. Not so much for its content (which, bu definition, is far from Political Correctness) but simply because it is anti-Christian and anti-Jewish.

The enemy of their enemy is their friend.

they're christophobic. they have an irrational fear of crosses and christianity.

Christianity is itself irrational and crosses are instruments of painful execution, so fear of them or their symbols would not be irrational.
