Wear white poppies not red?
So says the director of Ekklesia, as a peace statement. I’m fine with red — the blood of Christ and the martyrs, ‘it’s tradition’ and so on — but of course appreciate what he’s trying to say. (I also don’t like the commemoration turning into a glorification of the state and its wars but that almost goes without saying.) He also notes the hypocrisy of restricting the wearing of crosses in public life.
