    EU removes 'hammer and sickle' poster after protest — EUbusiness.com - EU Business News

    "The poster is not a European Commission poster. It was part of a series of posters hanging in a corridor which were made by artists in the context of a competition by the Czech Council on Foreign Relations. This competition was not funded by the EU," Giedrius Sudikas, spokesman for the commission's office in Lithuania, told AFP."As soon as the controversial symbol was pointed out, the poster was immediately removed. The building managers of all the Commission's buildings have now been asked to check if this poster is being displayed anywhere else on Commission property and remove it."

    What's in a religious symbol? Religious symbols and images are opposed by god.

    I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them.

    It is written: "You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.

    I will destroy your carved images and your sacred stones from among you; you will no longer bow down to the work of your hands.
