The most important message of a crucifix, was how cruel supposedly sane human beings can be when under orders from a superior authority.

Charles Xavier: Erik, you said yourself - we're the better men. This is the time to prove it. There are thousands of men on those ships, good, honest, innocent men. They're just following orders!

Erik Lehnsherr (Magneto): I've been at the mercy of men just following orders... never
again!
- X Men First Class
