Saving the Wren Cross

Students and alumni at William & Mary have organized to “Save the Wren Cross” after the school’s president ordered the removal of a cross from a campus chapel. Explains President Gene R. Nichol:

The Chapel is also used frequently for College events that are secular in nature–and should be open to students and staff of all beliefs. Whether celebrating our happiest moments, marking our greatest achievements, or finding solace during our most profound sadness, our Chapel, like our entire campus, must be welcoming to all. 
I believe a recognition of the full dignity of each member of our diverse community is vital.

And so cross be damned! The Virginia Informer has more here.
