Cross of Lorraine

in response to the Boyd Rice post, I was wondering what his cross necklace meant:
also known as the patriarchal cross, heraldic cross, or double barred cross... at first we thought it was a alchemy symbol [Colin suggested] so he looked through his book and I checked the google for references.. but I found it is neither a satanist, alchemy, or industrial music symbol... rather it is "the cross of lorraine" an alternative christian/byzantine symbol... it sometimes

represents the unrepentant thief crucified beside christ, or as in the above picture the anti nazi forces in wwii.. it also carries hermetic association and is used for mic associations today like the lung association whatever..
so either way its a really cool symbol and much better than the overused satanic cross going around with the hipsters.. fuck...
