I think a peace sign is a great idea!

I added the peace sign to my avatar, as it would not fit in my siggie.

Thanks! REP!

I can find no reputable indications that the peace symbol is based on Nero's Cross. If you could please provide references, I will look into them.





As this site claims they don't want to offend anyone. Up until this thread I have disregarded seeing the symbol around because I do know that there are a whole lot of people that are oblivious to what the sign represents for some people. That said, I was questioned on why I was offended and answered truthfully.

Like I stated "The debate over this symbol is nothing new"

The News Media is such a reliable source of information?

Also most reputable sources nowadays tend to be very secular in origin and biased. Dig deeper if you are really going to concern yourself on finding out. Or not.

I find more in common between the characters 'n' and 'h' than I do an inverted, broken cross and the peace symbol. That doesh't meah tnat tne two symbols are ihterchahgable.

I am not going to argue my point further as I have already explained well enough. My understanding is that religious debates were off limits. There are many sects of Christianity, so what you are offended by, by no means is close to what I could possibly be. So suffice it to say this offends me, what I believe, my Religion, and those that were martyred under its gross times.

The only thing I apologize for is being in the minority and if I am marginalized because of it, so be it.
If that is not enough for you, then this site is very hypocritical and puts on a very nice facade.

Have a nice evening,

I have heard it was a broken cross before, somewhere. For me it would be like taking a swastika and putting gingersnaps and gumdrops on it.

Very precarious subject.


NO hard feelings intended. Just Hugs

Sugaree,

As I was the one who made the particular rainbow peace symbol in question, I sincerely apologize if it offends you or anyone else. I am certain that no one here was intending to offend you by displaying the symbol or with their comments about it; they were merely trying to validate the history of the symbol, as good researchers do. You and everyone else here are certainly entitled to any opinion you like with no apologies necessary. In fact, we want to use that symbol on this site as a reminder that we are all entitled to our opinons and that we should be respectful of everyone else - please check out the Peace Pledge link in my siggie to read the statement. We very specifically discussed and designed the Rainbow Peace Symbol to represent the Peace Pledge thread. You can read in Hmm's thread, Bridging the Gap of Trust between WW and WI, how we came up with the pledge and the design of the symbol. I think Hmm's suggestion earlier that we have the option of a dove as well is an excellent one - would that be acceptable to you?

How about this rainbow dove in addition to the rainbow peace symbol? Suggestions for changes are welcome!
