In Bavaria, State Buildings Will Display A Cross

According to Evangelical Focus, in Germany this week the Minister President of the state of Bavaria has ordered every state administration building to hang a Christian cross in the building entrance.   Minister President of Bavaria, Markus Söder says that the cross is "a fundamental symbol of the Christian Western identity" and is an "expression of the spiritual and cultural character of Bavaria."  The order does not apply to municipal and regional district buildings, but they are encouraged to follow the example set by the state government. Opposition political parties in Bavaria criticized the order.
