    The National September 11th Memorial and Museum, *A NON-GOVERNMENTAL AGENCY*, has challenged a suit filed to keep the museum from displaying the iconic cross shaped I-beam recovered from the WTC rubble following the 911 attacks.

    9/11 Museum Seeks Dismissal of Atheists' Lawsuit Against Cross


    In the suit filed last year, a New Jersey atheist group claims that the piece of debris is in fact a shrine and that it doesn't represent non Christians who perished in the towers and that the cross shaped beam will somehow impose religion *"through the power of the state"*.

    On a more sensible note:
    This is some of the most idiotic shit I've ever heard of and I'm glad the museum is FINALLY pushing back. At the same time I'm not the least bit surprised given the petty bullshit we've all come to expect from our favorite dipshits in the "anti-God" movement.

    Perpendicular lines crossing one another are all around us and I love that some of the most repugnant people on earth take so much offense each time they encounter them.

    I'm constantly reminding people that we have "Freedom OF Religion" NOT "Freedom FROM Religion".

    Those same Atheists prolly believe in the Annunaki anyway.

    Exactly. And though that freedom OF religion allows for those without faith, it in no way implies that images related to any faith entering into the cornea's of anyone else is an infringement on their rights.
    Yet that's EXACTLY how these triflers like to interpret it.

    Are you being deliberately obtuse in asking that?

    Not being snarky, but I don't want to waste my time typing a response to a bright person who seems to be able to figure it out.

    Technically, neither exist in our Constitution. One is implied and the other is a misinterpretation that comes up each time someone gets all bent over what they see as an attempt to have faith forced upon them.
    Like "being forced" to look at two pieces of steel crossing at a right angle.

    Because you said so?

    If someone wants to teach their kid that there is no G-d, does government have the right to pick a religion and subject the child to it?
