Fed Judge- “Atheists Law Suit Banning Cross at GroundZero a Waste of Time”

The Ground Zero cross doesn’t violate anyone’s constitutional rights.

The United States being a country of laws, and one that zealously guards freedom of religion, Manhattan Federal Court has entertained for more than a year a suit that seeks to bar the 9/11 museum from displaying the steel beams in the shape of a crucifix recovered from the Ground Zero rubble.

American Atheists claims that showing the artifact violates the separation of church and state. The cross’ very existence has caused “symptoms of depression, headaches, anxiety, and mental pain and anguish” in members, the group gripes.

The suit has forced a whole lot of lawyering by attorneys representing the 9/11 Memorial and Museum Foundation and the Port Authority, along with defendants who have been dropped from the case, including the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. and Father Brian Jordan, a Catholic priest who had prayed before the icon.

The Port Authority and museum have asked Judge Deborah Batts to dismiss this lunacy, pointing out, for one thing, that the steel is part of the historical record, as is the emotion it engendered.
