Crazy Atheists want WTC Cross removed

The 9/11 Cross has many non-religious benefits: has anyone seen any Vampires around the site? Â Â Nope.

NYC — A National Group of Atheists are suing for removal of the 9/11 Cross from the World Trade Center memorial site. A group of people who don’t believe in God are pissed that a cross will sit on a site where almost 3,000 people perished.

The Groups president, Dan Silverman said this in a press release:

“The WTC cross has become a Christian icon…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.”

Dude, how insensitive, stupid and off-the-mark can you get? I’m Jewish, yet I am in no way offended by the 9/11 cross’s place at the Memorial. It’s not a big gaudy, gold cross to celebrate Christianity; it’s something much greater.

This piece of debris coincidentally shaped as a cross was pulled out of the rubble of dead bodies, friends, neighbors, co-workers, family members, and copy machines. It became a symbol, a shared memento to thousands that had to deal with this tragedy first hand.

Who the hell are these people to take that away from them?

Atheists are entitled to their belief of non-belief, but that doesn’t justify complete exclusion of Religion. All beliefs should be respected. This whole thing seems more Anti-Christian than anything else.

Are the Atheists in this case forgetting that it was religious intolerance that took those buildings down in the first place?

I bet Silverman wouldn’t have the same point of view if they pulled out two triangles fused together. I don’t care if it was in the shape of a dong, if it had meaning to those that actually were a part of the disaster, and the resulting clean-up and healing, then it is perfectly acceptable.

The group is willing to accept a compromise to removal, and asks for other religious symbols to be included as well.

If they’re atheists, why would they want that? Assholes.
