Rubble Cross

Atheist Group Wants To Stop World Trade Center Cross

Atheists are suing to stop the display of what appears to be a "cross" of steel left from the 9-11 disasters that many see as a sign of god. I hate frivolous law suits, but I have to side with the atheists on this one. If you want to display some of the rubble so people can see and remember the carnage, great. But, religious ideology is what got us into this mess and it should either be allowed along with remembrances of the religions of all the people who perished or none at all. It should not be christian over all others, come on. I really like this quote:

"The WTC cross has become a Christian icon," said Dave Silverman, president of the atheist group. "It has been blessed by so-called holy men and presented as a reminder that their god, who couldn't be bothered to stop the Muslim terrorists or prevent 3,000 people from being killed in his name, cared only enough to bestow upon us some rubble that resembles a cross. It's a truly ridiculous assertion."
