I don't think fundamentalists do this, but millions of Catholic and Orthodox Christians do it every day: the Sign of the Cross. It's when a person traces an upright cross over his body by moving his right hand from his forehead to his navel, then from his left shoulder to his right shoulder. Looks like an innocent enough gesture, until you remember that the cross is an instrument of torture. Let's force the little children to draw the symbol of a big torture device across their bodies as a sign that they are Christians. What a great idea! And imagine this: if Jesus had been hanged instead of nailed to a cross, Catholics would have to do the Sign of the Rope, which would probably look something like this: Or if he had died from a gunshot to the head, they would do the Sign of the Gun, like this: "In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit"
