And now for your Christian fact of the day.

In early Christianity, openly being a Christian could get you executed so CHristians had to meet in Private. The symbol they used to represent thier faith in secret? A fish. How is fish spelt in greek, the langage much of the orginal scripture was in? IXΘφE. Each letter makes an acronyme for Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior.

Notice what the X stands for in the acronym

Christ
Christ=X

It was not removed, Some Christians just don't understand their own history.

Nope, in fact, when Chrstians would meet each other, to signify if they wer s=christian or not, one would draw the top curve of the fish in the sand at their feet and the other would draw the bottom with their rod or finger or foot then they would quickly wipe the symbol away before anyone saw. A secret way of identifying their faith withour tripping of an alert by guards as to what you believ in.
