"Unacceptable". Card. Christoph Schönborn, president of the Austrian Bishops’ Conference, condemns the sentence issued by the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg on the Crucifix. "The sentence of the Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg is simply unacceptable. In Austria the judicial situation is clear. In those schools in which the majority of students are Christian, there must be a cross in all classrooms. This is inscribed in our Constitution. The cross in the classrooms does not violate the freedom of religion, nor does it violate the free profession of different religious beliefs", explained the cardinal. "On the contrary, this symbol is a sign that love is stronger than death. The European and Austrian identities are based on this very symbol. With this sentence, the Court did not render any service to Europe. This continent will have a future only if it does not deny its roots. The cross is the symbol of these roots".
