Angry atheists claim the mere existence of the Ground Zero Cross is giving them "depression, headaches, anxiety, and mental pain and anguish." As ridiculous as it sounds, they are taking this argument to a federal appeals court. We are preparing a critical amicus brief, due in a matter of weeks, to defend the Cross. As the trial court correctly noted, these intersecting steel beams found in the rubble of the 9/11 terrorist attack are a historical artifact, not a constitutional violation. They really meant something to thousands of Americans whether the atheists like it or not. We must make it clear: the Constitution is not an atheist manifesto. From a solicitation by the ACLJ (American Center for Liberty and Justice). http://www.charismanews.com/opinion...ue-relentless-attack-on-the-ground-zero-cross The angry atheists’ reaction was unsurprising. “We are angry that we have to have this fight,” said the president of the group, David Silverman. Despite their unmitigated rage, placing this cross in a museum does not violate the Constitution. As the Supreme Court has repeatedly held that the Constitution’s “goal of avoiding governmental endorsement does not require eradication of all religious symbols in the public realm.” Simply put, the Constitution is not an atheist manifesto. The fact is their lawsuit alleges that the mere “existence of the cross” has given them “depression,” “anxiety,” “mental pain and anguish,” and even “headaches.” For those who claim to have no faith, they are assigning near supernatural qualities to the cross. Ironic as it is, their challenge to the cross, its historic significance, and the real impact it had on thousands of Americans is real.
