The seeming open war against Christianity has taken another turn for the worse. It's not enough that God has been removed from classrooms and even The Pledge of Allegiance, now the symbol of a knight in shining armor has been deemed racist and offensive.
The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts spent a month deliberating and has now decided to remove any "knight imagery" to represent its "Crusaders" since knights are associated with "the violence of the Crusades" and promote "Islamophobia."

The war against Christianity in the country founded on Christian values is insulting and a direct affront to freedom of religion. The sweeping shift against the Christian God is the result of an influx of Muslim refugees and liberal ideology that promotes diversity over free speech.
The latest battleground over the religion has been unfolding over the last several months at the Christian College of the Holy Cross. Students first voted to adopt the name "Crusader" in 1925 and in 1955 renamed the college's newspaper to the same name. The college has come under fire since last March since the name "Crusader" is also used by a newspaper published by the KKK.

Those who argued in defense of the mascot say the Crusades were a conflict between expanding Muslim empires and decreasing Christians who were already fighting among themselves. They point out the historical reality that the latest attack on the Crusaders ignores the fact that both sides committed heinous acts.
The uproar against the college and its mascot have caused the college to remove knight imagery altogether from the campus as well as change the school newspaper's name to "The Spire".
