World Trade Center Cross Sued by Atheists

Remember the crossed beams that stood after the World Trade Towers fell? The cross was carefully located a short distance away while the site was under construction. Now the cross has made it’s way back and will be a part of a display of natural elements, or “authentic physical reminders” left in the destruction. A group of atheists are suing, saying the cross is a “mingling of church and state.” It is the longheld Left belief that the right to have no belief, as guaranteed by our Constitution, takes precedent over the rights of others to acknowledge their belief. If you look at all the space in this country with no religious acknowledgement, atheists have the better of it. The cross is an artifact, and is being used in that way at the Trade Towers site. I will say this, I fear one day something like this will happen and a star and crescent moon will be pulled from a wreckage somewhere, and…

World Trade Center - Cross Forms in Wreckage

Fox Nation:

The World Trade Center cross, two intersecting steel beams that held up when the twin towers collapsed on September 11, 2001, is seen as iconic to some.

The cross was moved Saturday from near a church to its new home at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. There was also ceremonial blessing of the cross in a service led by Father Brian Jordan, a Franciscan monk who ministered to workers clearing the area after the 9/11 attacks.

Joe Daniels, 9/11 Memorial president, said Saturday that the cross is “an important part of our commitment to bring back the authentic physical reminders that tell the history of 9/11 in a way nothing else could.

  • This stuff ticks me off. What a waste of money and kick in the stomach for religion. Again, having a belief in God and displaying that belief is not infringing on anyone else’s rights. Athiests are making us all athiests by not letting anyone express their beliefs.

  • Lets make atheism a religion, that way whenever there is a lack of God in anything we can sue because it promotes atheism. You have to get a little bit crazy when dealing with crazy people.

  • I am so sick of atheists attacking anything to do with religion or Christianity. These people are anti-Constitutionalist agitators violating peoples’ civil and religious rights. I think we need to start suing them back more often and become even more outspoken than many of us already are.

    I am an Atheist, but I can appreciate the morals and whatnot behind Christianity. my deal is, don’t convert me, I won’t convert you. But I digress, this lawsuit is stupid, at best.

    Ignore the atheist attack. The reality is that this cross gave comfort to people when they saw it in the debris. The cross will always give comfort when needed to those who believe. To the atheist, turn around and look elsewhere, and hopefully you will find comfort too.
