The cross at Ground Zero was formed when falling buildings mashed two pieces of strucural metal together. Pretty close to an "Act of God," in my book. I wonder if the atheists have given thought to suing Austrailia over the constellation "Southern Cross."
This came from NewsMax:
Dear Conservative Friend,
This is one e-mail that you NEED to forward to ALL of your contacts, across the country and around the world. We MUST NOT let the travesty below take place.
According to a recent article, with the upcoming 2-year anniversary of the deadly 9/11 attacks, "an atheist organization is once again warning against using a steel-beam cross at the site of the World Trade Center disaster from being used in a permanent memorial to the victims who died there."
The organization American Atheists (founded by the late Madalyn Murray O'Hair) is protesting a proposal to use a large steel cross found in the rubble of the World Trade Center in a memorial to victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
We all remember that cross. A construction worker came across it in the midst of the WTC wreckage just a few days after the attacks. It was standing straight, 20-feet high, surrounded by many smaller crosses. After it was discovered, construction workers, firefighters, police officers and family members began holding weekly Sunday services at the site.
The names of fallen police officers and firefighters were also scribbled on the cross, along with the message "God Bless Our Fallen Brothers".
And now, this group of atheists is threatening a lawsuit to prevent the cross from becoming part of any permanent memorial.
You and I can help to stop their assault by signing ConservativeAlerts.com's online petition.
ACTION ITEM: The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, the agency overseeing the rebuilding of the area, has made no decisions on what a Ground Zero memorial would include. There's still time for hundreds of thousands of people to voice their opinion, that the "Ground Zero Cross" should remain as part of any future memorial to the WTC victims.
Go to our site below to sign the "Ground Zero Cross" petition NOW:
