A group of atheists has filed a lawsuit to stop the display of the World Trade Center cross at a memorial of the 9/11 terror attacks. The "government enshrinement of the cross was an impermissible mingling of church and state," the American Atheists say in a press statement.
These guys are going to a whole lot of trouble and a whole lot of people are going to spit on them in the process, so what's the big deal? Quoth the atheists:
"The WTC cross has become a Christian icon," said Dave Silverman, president of the atheist group. "It has been blessed by so-called holy men and presented as a reminder that their god, who couldn't be bothered to stop the Muslim terrorists or prevent 3,000 people from being killed in his name, cared only enough to bestow upon us some rubble that resembles a cross. It's a truly ridiculous assertion."
Call me a fundie if you must, but that quote doesn't sound like a guy who thinks there is no God. That sounds like a guy who thinks there IS a God and hates him. Like, super duper hates him. And is going to pop a head gasket if he has to look at another cross ever again. (Also sounds like a pencil necked little dickhead, but that's a different post.)
