Red light district salvation by QuanticChaos1000 Red light district salvation by QuanticChaos1000
A church in a red light district in Edmonton Alberta Canada, just off of Jasper Ave.

...I bet there have been a whole lot of "oh gods" said near here! :p

Actually, the way the smaller bars are arranged, it looks like a Russian/Eastern Orthodox cross.

Would'nt surprise me, I don't think I stated what I thought it was specifically... I do think the neon is a funky and unusual thing to do though! :D

I have seen neon-light crosses on churches/steeples here in Wisconsin, but they are almost without exception blue (I've seen a couple in white). Red is a VERY unusual color for a neon cross on Protestant/Catholic churches. Being Methodist, I'm not up on Eastern Orthodox traditions; perhaps the red color is to symbolize the blood of Christ?

And searching Google images and cross-referencing (no pun intended) with Wikipedia, it is most definitely an Orthodox cross.

Really? Neat! So far this is the first nean cross I've noticed, I go through Wisconsin every couple of years and I will definately try to keep an eye out now! :D

And thanks for letting me know what it actually is, it's good to know!
