Atheists aren't doing themselves any favors regarding their standing with the rest of the vast majority of Americans when they do such frivolous things. It's just one more silly example of the tail trying to wag the dog.

To say that "its members suffered from both physical and emotional damages from the presence of the beamed cross, resulting in headaches, indigestion and mental pain" seems unbelievable and actually quite ludicrous to most common-sense people.

After all, the cross is a universally recognized symbol of peace, love and hope for mankind. And in this particular instance, the finding of this cross at Ground Zero brought all three needed things to survivors and rescuers when it was needed the most.

oh my goodness - WHAT!!! A Christian cross in a Christian nation? What is this country coming to? The sad thing is that it took a court order to allow the cross to stay. America is falling faster than boat anchor.

As an atheist who views religion as one of the great evils in society I actually agree with much of your post. The old saying of having to pick your battles comes to mind and this just isn't a battle I would have chosen to fight.

Well, I am LDS, and crosses are not much on my worship list, but I think it is beautiful.
Gives me chills to see it.
Why not just look at it for what it is...a sign of hope, of peace, of healing, a miracle.
(Headaches, indigestion and mental pain? Oh brother!)
Copacetic, your post made a lot of sense.
