What is the meaning of the sideways cross necklace that everyone seems to be wearing?


Celebrities from Selena Gomez and JLo all seem to be on this fashion trend in jewelry. Why sideways? Does it mean something or is it just a new take on the cross?

    I like your answer and i am deciding now not to purchase this new trend sideway cross because i am not sure the agenda behind it especially if celebrities are so much promoting it. Thanks for your input.

    Why would an upside-down cross be a different issue? It could be a symbol of loyalism to the Catholic church through St. Peter.

    I like that: a fashion choice with no deeper meaning. Because such a fashion trend actually says something profound about shared human experience, or belonging to the human tribe. Mostly positive stuff.

    Context is everything. In many places or industries a cross is frequently used as a fashion statement. It happens frequently in Japanese media, particularly in music and animation. The whole world is not Judeo-Christian; this is important to realize.

    i think your answer is right on and totally leading to the right point. Yes, i feel it is a mockery of Christ.

    I am not judging, but why does a Catholic want to wear it sideways?

    i mostly see Catholics wear it hanging straight, why does there always have to be a change with the world?Its absolutely beautiful wearing it the way it always been worn.

    When the Rhianna's Beyonce's and Madonna are wearing these symbols, i know its not something i should or need to be wearing.I think its a mockery of Christ and they are trying to conceal its true meaning and they know people are going to be influence

    actually the cross is not a good sign of remembrance, may i suggest instead, get a "He is Risen" pin or necklace thats the most important thing. There are many different crosses that mean different things to people

    Onto something, Clive. Unfortunately it's true, how what is right is being bent, and 'reinvented' as a trend. There is nothing trendy or fashionable about the Cross - A symbol of Jesus dying for our sins. The cross is upright, and always will be.

    I think your comment is unrealistic and not reality.Symbols are hugely important and a representation of groups and organizations.Look at the Cancer Society ,Look at the music videos so much strong emphasis on symbols because they are important.

    I don't need a cross to say I'm a Christian, just as a doctor don't have to walk around his neck with a stethoscope to say he's a doctor. The truth is what you see is not always what it is. Celebs are used as tools...if you're a believer...watch!!

    Yes...it does look rather peculiar sideways. This leads me to believe it is meant for a purpose or has a specific meaning.

    The methodist cross was grossly misused decades ago. The flames are to represent your burning desire to love the Lord. Crosses were not meant to be burned as some sort of medieval threat. The Methodist tradition is one of service to the human family

    I am really confused by your COMMENT!! "As A Christian you find it OFFENSIVE"?? "But in a way you POSSIBLY think someone wearing might be CONTEMPLATING 'entering' CHRISTIANITY"?? I don't think if you feel that way it would at ALL be "OFFENSIVE"??
