    Default Religious fanatics, ever wondered where your crucifixes were made?

    NEW YORK - A labor rights group alleged Tuesday that crucifixes sold in religious gift shops in the U.S. are produced under "horrific" conditions in a Chinese factory with more than 15-hour work days and inadequate food.

    "I don't think they have a clue where these crucifixes were made — in horrific work conditions," Kernaghan said.

    Kernaghan said the factory's mostly young, female employees work from 8 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. seven days a week and are paid 26 cents an hour with no sick days or vacation. Workers live in filthy dormitories and are fed a watery "slop."

    Boy I wish Jesus Christ could see how his image is used to exploit the defenseless.

    Hmmmm, My crucifix was made in Italy from olive wood and has a stone from Jerusalem just below Jesus feet.

    But then, I'm not a religious fanatic. Just a practicing Catholic.

    Some consider me a religious fanatic (thank-you very much), I don't have a crucifix, never had one, and never will. I don't know anybody of my faith that has one.

    My crucifix is also of olive wood and was made in Jerusalem. Big, you're correct, it's usually Catholics (along with the Orthodox, Church of England) that have Crucifix's.
