Atheists threaten suit over 9/11 memorial with Christian cross

Atheists are threatening to sue over a planned Princeton, N.J., memorial to mark the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on American soil because a metal beam that’s part of the display has a small cutout of a Christian cross.

The beam is the brainchild of a firefighter — who’s Jewish — who says the cross is actually a historic symbol, not religious, on Fox News. The beam was removed from the site of the World Trade Center debris; the cross shape was then cut into it. But American Atheists say the cutout is “grossly offensive,” and members vow to sue the municipality if the memorial goes forth as planned.

The group’s president, David Silverman, insists that the symbol is religious and that putting it on a public site would be a “clear violation of the separation of church and state.”

He also said the symbol sends a lousy message to those who aren’t Christians, Fox News reported. It would actually give the “appearance that all the people who suffered and died on 9-11 and their families are being memorialized by a Christian symbol. That is wrong. That is un-American.”

    David Silverman believes in God because if he didn’t, why would this annoy or bother him so much….Praise God, Mr. Silverman, and for the record, this country and Nation has bent far enough for you and your group. It is time to put this country, Nation and people back in check.

    Will do. I’m daily reminded of the statue or sculpture “The Minute Man.” Good thing he and his American buddies were not followers of the current progressive agenda. If they had been we would be 50 British Colonies today with gun control and a much heavier socialist agenda. I like and respect the Brits with Elizabeth II. Just not their agenda. Maybe they’ll soon see the light and begin adopting our conservative interests.

    A group of atheists complained that they had no official holiday. A Judge told them, “Oh yes you do!” The Atheists then politely asked how that came to be. The Judge said that in the Judeo-Christian Bible there’s a statement at Psalm 53:1, “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.” So you have April Fools Day April first every year.

    You know all this bickering about God, Jesus, and the cross is so rediculas. Any sane person knows that humans did not come from a monkey, or a fish that slithered up on the shore and grew arms, legs, and a body. If do why aren’t monkeys still changing into humans? And fish also.. One can deny Christ coming to this earth in the body of a virgin placed there by the Holy Spirit all day long, but does that make it untrue? Common sense tells us that there is a Being that made the world and animals, and man. The Cross is what made the difference! That’s where Gods only “begotten Son” took all the sins of mankind upon Himself so that we could be forgiven our sins and someday come live with Him. Personally I believe we are living in the last days as the Bible reads. But while we are here, (Speaking of Christians), we need to do what we think is best for our GREAT Country. Regardless of what all the sooth sayers mouth. God is God and they will someday stand before Him as He tells them He never knew them and cast them into an ever burning hell.. One can deny Christ all they want, but that doesn’t make Him disappear.. He’s there Waiting patiently for a confession from their lips and He’ll take them in and forgive them.. We Christians serve a BIG, BIG God and we should not argue with unbelieves.. Just tell them the truth and let it go as that.. Trump for President!!!
