Looking in my Facebook feed today, I saw that someone posted that a judge ruled that the 9/11 museum can include World Trade Center cross. Using my new critical brain from yesterday, I thought to myself, “NO one REALLY could have opposed that, could they? Let me do some googling.”
Sure enough, a group of atheists sued to stop them from including the cross in the museum. They failed, but they’re not giving up. But they should, they really should.
I’m not one to argue for shoving religion down anyone’s throat and I’m a pretty firm believer in separation of church and state…but this is nucking futs!
I could understand if they just slapped a random cross in the museum and put up a plaque that said, Yay Jesus!” But that’s not what this is. This is a piece of the building that was destroyed. What could be more appropriate for a museum about the events of that day than a piece of one of the buildings? Yes, it is in the shape of a cross. You get to decide if that’s meaningful to you or not. You DON’T get to decide to expunge it from the museum because you don’t believe it’s meaningful. This is the kind of stupidity that Christian nut jobs are paranoid about…and you’re DOING it*! Don’t make them right! Now they’re going to believe ALL of their crazy atheist attack fantasies.
Next time I see one of you, I’m oing to wish you “merry Christmas”…even if it’s July. Just out of spite. (The way Jesus would have wanted)
*(That was not the good kind of “You’re doin’ it.” It was the you’re doing it wrong kind)
