The meaning of an inverted cross

"If those Satanists had paid attention in Sunday school, they would probably realize that the inverted cross is actually the personal trademark of Saint Peter, the first Pope, and one of the most revered figures in Catholic lore. When Peter was martyred by crucifixion he was said to have requested to be crucified upside down because he didn't feel worthy of dying the same way as Jesus. As a result, many dyed-in-the-wool Catholics actually consider the inverted cross to be a more acceptable thing to attach to your tacky jewelry than a regular right-way-up one... By wearing an upside-down cross, Satanists are unwittingly showing humility and unworthiness before Christ.
More details at Cracked.  Wikipedia points out the essential difference between an inverted cross and an inverted crucifix:
In Roman Catholicism the Petrine Cross is not seen as Satanic in any way. However, an inverted crucifix (a Latin cross with an artistic depiction of the crucified body of Christ upon it) is seen as immensely disrespectful, and could be used to represent Satanic forces. The distinction between a Cross of Peter and upturned Crucifix is sometimes obscured, leading to confusion about the acceptability of each symbol. This was seen when controversy arose over the aforementioned Papal visit to Israel; pictures of the Pope sitting before a Petrine Cross were widely circulated on the Internet in an attempt to prove that the Catholic Church is associated with Satanism and the Antichrist.

    the upside down cross was also a pagan symbol (the hammer of thor) and pagans in iceland would say it was an upside cross to catholics to prevent from being killed.

  2. The Mjolnir is not an inverted Cross, in the sense that it is mistakable for a Petrine Cross.

    That story is a myth, must as fables about the Norse or Celts inventing the Pentagram is a myth.

  3. The inverted cross is an old Pagan symbol symbolising the proper alignment of the chakras to intake energy. The main line is the 7 great chakras (Base Sacral Sun Heart Throat Ajna Crown) And the other line is the hip chakras what serve for the intake of energy.If you wanna know why no double lines at 90 degrees to the main line because there are shoulder chakras too, the answer is shoulder chakras are not so important for energy intake. In a nutshell inverted cross is a symbol for spiritual well being and empowerment. So much about the christian bullshit.

  4. Very true the inverded cross does indeed represents the 7 Chakras. A very old ancient symbol. People are blind by the words of technology. Humanity will never learn. But to stay blame by the curse of Jesus lies. Every human is not the same each has their power. Godhead can be achieve. By any human. Find out yourself weaklings..

  5. I second Zerudon and Anonymous right here, the inverted cross is an ancient symbol that predates Christianity and represents the alignment of the chakras. Many ancient religions like Paganism and True Satanism among many others were familiar with this symbol long before Christianity. No need to use it to trash talk.
