Crucifix fashion makes Pope cross


The Pope this week condemned celebrities such as Britain's Victoria and David Beckham for sporting crucifixes as fashion accessories because they contradict "the spirit of the Gospel".

David Beckham has often worn a $A52,475 Theo Fennell diamond crucifix.

The Vatican, which named Jennifer Aniston, Naomi Campbell and Catherine Zeta-Jones among the culprits, said: "Is it right to spend thousands on a sacred symbol of Christianity and then in a non-Christian manner forget those who suffer and die from hunger in the world?"
