A scary crucifix

The Church Times reports a West Sussex church removing a crucifix figure from above the church door, partly because the figure has been scaring children, and partly because of a perceived inappropriateness of a crucifix as opposed to an empty cross. I feel sure that there is more to the issue than this, not least questions of style; the figure is by Edward Bainbridge Copnall, and dates from 1963.
