Atheists Call 9-11 Memorial Cross “Grossly Offensive”

Christian cross SC Atheists Call 9 11 Memorial Cross “Grossly Offensive”

A Jewish firefighter who wants to display a Christian cross as part of a New Jersey 9-11 memorial is facing stiff opposition from a group of atheists who called the religious image “grossly offensive.”

The American Atheists are threatening to sue Princeton, NJ if they proceed with plans to erect the memorial. They took issue with a beam that was salvaged from the ruins of the World Trade Center because a cross had been cut out of one side of the beam.

“This particular beam has a religious symbol on it,” American Atheists president David Silverman told Fox News. “They have a beam with a religious symbol and that makes it a religious icon.”

Silverman said placing the beam on public land would be a “clear violation of the separation of church and state.”

He also said the cross symbol would send a terrible message to non-Christians. He said the city would be giving the “appearance that all of the people who suffered and died on 9-11 and their families are being memorialized by a Christian symbol.”

      Yet you are the one posting multiple times to murder, execute or even straight out kill anyone and everyone who has an opposing idea than you do.
      I highly suggest you seek out that anti-psychotic meds you are posting about. You are CLEARLY suffering from multiple personalities with anger management issues.

        Seeks I think gdc is bi-polar and when he goes off his meds he becomes a lunatic or else he been whipping his tool to much.I have a niece whose bi-polar and when she goes off her meds she becomes a con artist. Sometimes gdc has a good comment to bad he is an idiot most times.

        • Seeks_the_truth says:

          I'm sure you've already figured out what type of person gdc is. He's the typical anarchist that uses the one in power as their god. He denies any authority over him by anyone. Even the most innocuous item. He believes in the 'wild west' style rules.
          With this comment that he makes at every religiously based article, it shows he was once a catholic that was abused. Not necessarily by a priest, but someone in the church. He has unresolved anger and hatred for a belief that let him down. Add with his other comments, I would take a guess it was done in a school setting. Since he was done 'wrong', there must not be any god.
          People like him are the extreme fringe. He would be happiest if he could throw out the rule of law and all religions. In other words, he doesn't know how to 'play nice' with others.
          I truly pity him.
