American Atheists have now singled out an item from the rubble of the September 11th attack on the US. They want a cross censored from the new 9/11 memorial museum at the World Trade Center site.
The 17 ft tall metal cross was discovered intact during search and recovery efforts. It consists of two metal beams from the center that became a recognized symbol of hope and patriotism in the weeks and months following the attack on America. Yet, these secularists have filed a lawsuit against its inclusion in the museum. They claim that it promotes Christianity and somehow diminishes the civil rights of non-Christians. There are other religious items from the rubble such as a Star of David and a Bible included in the museum, but the cross really seems to bother the secularists.
