If you sport a cross in the form of an accessory, a tattoo, or even a statement drawn on the side of your schoolbag in marker, the Archbishop of Canterbury is concerned about your intentions.

Most Reverend Justin Welby reckons that the Cross, deemed to be a badge of shame by early Christians, has been devalued by fashion – namely Italian fashion gods Dolce & Gabbana.
