Court Rules 9/11 Museum CAN Show Ground Zero Cross



New York's appellate court ruled on Monday that the cross-shaped beam found in the rubble of the World Trade Towers can be displayed in the 9/11 musuem. An atheist group in 2011 sued the museum and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey seeking to block the display as unconstitutional, arguing that the cross was a religious symbol that had no place in a government-sponsored institution.

Never mind that it was a legitimate piece of rubble which has brought comfort to many who lost family and/or were working on clearing and rebuilding the site.
“As a matter of law, the record compels the conclusion that appellees’ actual purpose in displaying The Cross at Ground Zero has always been secular: to recount the history of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and their aftermath,” Circuit Judge Reena Raggi wrote for the court.

Rescue workers unearthed the crossed set of girders two days after the attacks, which killed nearly 3,000 people when al Qaeda members deliberately flew two hijacked jetliners into the World Trade Center’s twin towers.

The cross quickly became a symbol to hundreds of people, some of whom attended religious services held in front of it. It now stands in the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, which opened to the public in May.
Come in Atheists get a life! Of course the ground zero cross has a religious meaning to some (not me but some).  are your collective lives so empty that you cant have some comfort in the fact that a piece of metal may slightly ease the pain of others? Start worrying about improving your empty lives and leave people who believe in God alone.

VERY sad. It is amazing how people prefer Hamas lies to the truth... thanks forwarding the truth. However I am still sure that Hamas and Gaza fans will still try to deny this as well.

And two of the reporters are very anti Israel in their Twitter feeds - astounding, especially considering what they are saying is happening!

Keisia Kiki Charles thank you for the illiterate all caps comment. Next time you go to the Reunion internet bar and join disqus so you can comment on a website, may I suggest you surf to a different site. Firstly, you have been banned from commenting, secondly this site is for people with the mental capacity to read and understand words with more than three letters. Based on the all caps rant you wrote and submitted twice today "The Lid" is way above your comprehension level. So put back on that helmet your mother makes you wear when you leave the house and ride your tricycle back home.
