Professor fired for removing a crucifix in a public school

This week a professor was fired in the region of Wallis / Switzerland for removing a crucifix from his school class wall, his director stated that "dont have to come trough regional use" of the symbol.

For the reminder, school in Switzerland are non-religious zone but it seems like the "regional use" smell a little too much the holy pot.

wait..this guy got fired for taking something off of a wall that was his? that's ridiculous.
We all know that religious groups make up their own rules.
I just have a feeling that religious thinkers are now seeing the end of religion in the future and are now panicking. They need more recruits as religion is on the wane and they know it, but things like this only rouse anger in people..
Unfortunate for him. Fortunate for us. Things like this only help our cause.
