Seeing the picture below really bothered me the other day.
I mean of all of the places to wear a crucifix, who puts one right above their naughty bits?
But then I read this...
A Crucifix, considered in Christian tradition as a defense against demons, as the holy sign of Christ's victory over every evil.
...and I was confused no more.
So the crucifix is the symbol of Christ's victory over evil.
And Palin wears it right above, what I imagine must be, the gates of hell.
Well that makes sense. And here I thought it was just decorative.
(By the way, weren't crucifixes also used to keep evil contained?)
