Trinity College, Dublin have been criticised after deciding to remove a depiction of the bible from their 422-year-old crest, with one graduate calling it "political correctness gone totally mad".

The college had previous told students and staff that it would keep the bible, along the other traditional symbols of the lion, castle and harp.

May I suggest an alternative name: College des Manège à Trois.
This is very sad. They are entrusted with the safekeeping of the Book of Kells and now seem to be ashamed of it.
Looking at the old crest and the new one..... are we real sure that they just didn’t trade a closed Bible for an open Bible? I sure hope that is the case.
I was privileged to visit Trinity College a few years ago and so very much enjoyed the experience. Seeing the Book of Kells was one of the highlights of my trip to Ireland.
Come on you wimps. Go full PC and use tge red crescent moon of Islam.
Or the Obama logo.
