The William and Mary Cross

William and Mary University's approach to dealing with a cross in its chapel sounds reasonable to me:
Nichol ordered the cross removed in October to make the chapel more welcoming to students of all faiths. Previously, the cross could be removed by request; now it can be returned by request.

I'm not quite sure I see the other side's point. They seem to be arguing that displaying a cross should be the default. In other words, Christianity is the default, and other, lesser religions can be present only upon special request. Generally speaking, it doesn't seem like it's too much to ask to make university chapels equally available for all religions.
