What does a upside down cross mean?

Report as
Scarabrae

Disrespect for the Christian religion. Extreme disrespect, I might say. It is used by "devil worshipers", who are fools for asking favors of a being who, if he exists at all, would never keep any bargain he/she made. Some people wear it as a statement to say "I don't care what anybody thinks"; which is a lie or why are they trying to convince people they are "tough."

If it's Satanic, why does the POPE have it in his THRONE? You're spreading misinformed lies.

You must be pretty close minded and stubborn. The upside down cross was used on the pope and other Christians when they died.. They chose to be crucified upside down to show more respect to jesus. 666 lol

Dear Scarabrae, the upside dow cross, its actually the cross where st. Peter was cricified, because back in those days, he thought he wasnt worthy enough to die the same way "jesus" did for us. (That is the true* meaning of the upside down cross) Later on in history, rebel people, adopted the upside down cross as a symbol of desobey and opposit things towards the catholic church. Stop spreading wrong information.

It's a satanic symbol. It's making a mockery of the sacrifice Christ made for us on the cross. Satanists often use Christian symbols and rituals only backward, upside-down or otherwise twisted in order to pervert or desecrate the original meaning. They'll even perform a mock communion ceremony but doing it in a sacrilegious way. My advise (though you didn't ask for it), stay away from anyone who uses a cross in that manner.

It's mostly used as a Satanic or anti-Christian symbol. It's called "The cross of St. Peter" because he was crucified upside down. I think some churches use this cross to honor him. Rarely ever see it used that way though.

The Cross of St. Peter or Petrine Cross is an inverted Latin cross traditionally used as a Christian symbol, but in recent times also used widely as an anti-Christ symbol (a meaning which is not valid with respect to traditional conventions of Christian symbolism)......http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upside_down_cross

The St Peter cross. He was crucified upside down, and the inverted cross symbolizes that.

A lot of people will give you the tv and movie version of what an upside down cross means, but the Apostle Stephen was crucified upside down on a cross. It is said that he did not feel worthy to die like Christ and so they did so to him upside down, at his request. He was martyred. That is the answer to your sign.

Work1ders- It was Peter who was crucified upside down for that reason. Stephen was stoned as a martyr.

Ask lady gaga or lil wayne. he wears the upside down cross and ppl love him. i feel that wearing that symbol is the most disrespectful thing you can do. people pay homage to rappers and celebrities even when they disrespect GOD/JESUS. GOD says we should have no other
Gods before us.
it is blasphemous and disrespectful. Satanic worshippers and celebrities wear that symbol and many other symbols. ...watch who you honor!

sexism racism and homophobia is disrespectful, maybe they're defending your attack against them. Maybe they're not the ones instigating the initial abuse, maybe it's you.

Its My Lords Sign. ^-^ It IS NOT Disrespectful if you love the lord. Dont ever let anyone tell you other ways. Its a great sign...You tell me when god actually talks to you. Remember this. You can not escape your demons when they are in your head. Even God worshipers have the demons. Anyways the upside down cross is for our lord Satan. IT is one of the signs for our lord tho.
