This is incoherent. Most younger people don't associate a crucifix with "goodness" any more than they see the priesthood as more than a cloak within which closet pederasts can hide. Sure, it used to be true that people who unfurled the cry of "God, church and country" automatically garnered a measure of respect even among non-adherents, but nowadays this is seen as a pathetic, stereotypical battle cry among anti-intellectual rednecks.
Wow, someone struck a nerve. Chill out there. I'm sorry if your priest molested you.
