WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) -- The College of the Holy Cross says it will stop using the image of a knight as a logo and mascot even though trustees last month decided to keep the nickname Crusaders for its athletic teams.
The president of the Worcester (WUS'-tur), Massachusetts, Jesuit college, the Rev. Philip Boroughs, wrote in a letter to students, alumni and staff Wednesday the depiction of a knight with the moniker Crusader is an inevitable reminder of the religious wars and violence that marked the Crusades.
Boroughs says such imagery "stands in contrast" to the college's stated values" but notes the word "crusader," in its modern sense, means someone who stands for positive principles.
In place of a knight, Holy Cross will use an interlocking HC on a purple shield as its primary logo.

Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before.

To quote Augustine, ‘never judge a philosophy by its abuse’.

So I guess Holy Cross will have all home games with puck drop at 3pm local time, since they can't have knight games?

Are you flipping kidding me? This is really getting out of control and I consider myself a liberal on many issues.

Next we'll be changing the name of manhole covers to be more gender neutral.

Wow, awful lot of snowflakes here who can't handle a university deciding on its own to change something that they feel doesn't accurately represent their values.

One of if not the most well known city of Worcester's museum's is the Higgins Armory museum. Kind of a slap in the face for them too in this PC gone amok business.

bit off topic (but not really)..
unfortunately that gem of a place closed down few yrs back.. (what a fantastic collection).
the building now sits empty. mr higgins turning in his grave.. they moved the armor & jousting stuff to the worcester art museum i believe, where it resides on one of the floors. some was sold off to private collection.

went to the higgins armory many a times back in the day.. never got old. unfortunately not too many kids today thought much of it. declining attendance was one of the major reasons they shut down.
