Germany: Bavaria's controversial cross rule goes into effect
The southern German state of Bavaria's decree about hanging crosses in public buildings has gone into effect. The rule, as well as the motives behind it, has left Bavarians and local authorities scratching their heads.

Starting on Friday, nearly all state authorities in Bavaria are required to have a cross hanging in their foyers — meaning that anyone turning in their taxes, reporting something to a police station, or entering an administrative court will be greeted by a cross in the southern German state.

"From then on, the obligation goes into effect — and we mean it absolutely seriously," Martin Scholtysik, a spokesman for the Bavarian state interior ministry told DW.

The spokesman did not elaborate on whether or not there would be penalties for authorities that refuse to hang up the crosses, but he did note that the ministry is expecting some pushback.

Required: 'clearly visible cross'

The newly amended requirements for state buildings now reads: "A clearly visible cross must be placed in the entrance area of every service building to serve as a reminder of the historical and cultural influence of Bavaria."

So. If JC was killed with an archery device they would want a arrow displayed.  Hmmm, cross makes sense. We wouldn't want floks killing each other over whether it should be an arrow or bow.   
The only thing possible the world needs saving from are the ones running it.
Oh lord, save us from those wanting to save us.

Well in this region of the world, vampires are a huge problem. So, the crosses are a precaution to keep them out of public office.

Oh joy.

Gariic flowers round the doors and windows work as well, that's the natural approach.
