What do you think of this? 9-11, Atheists, Christians.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

As a non-religious person, I view this as art, albeit Christian in nature. I don't understand how it is offensive to Atheists, as a piece of art. Interesting debate, weigh in.

Not really.. It's something they found in the rubble...
I just don't understand why everybody gets offend about everything... Seriously.
Some just need to learn how to control their emotions.

Would that have made a difference though? They're both symbolic of Christianity.

Quoting Maks1mommy:

It's a metal beam in the shape of a cross... It's not like they put a Jesus statue out there....

The issue is it was a support beam made to look like a cross. It's not like the explosion made perfect laser cuts.

Many museums are run by the government and have religious pieces in them. If the piece is a part of the history that museum is representing it belongs there regardless of any religious significance.

As an atheist, I find this just boring lol.

9/11, however, is something that I still get overly emotional about to this day.  I don't get offended and ask people to take off their cross necklaces when I am in the same room as them.  If people find solace in this, then so be it.

People should be able to view it thru their own eyes and make their determinations. I see it as artwork and a symbol for the Christian religion. I dont find it offensive. Im not a christian but I do believe in God.

This.


Quoting tessamalk:

I'm an atheist; I don't really care if the cross is there.

But I do have to wonder, would the Christian community be defending the statue if it were a symbol of a different religion, or would they want that removed?

One has freedom of not.freedom.from. I dont worship the cross but the ONE who.was ressurected. It's a cross. No one is forcing hommage to be paid, no one is making an atheist kiss it and drop money and flowers to it etc.

Thought religion and government were supposed to be separate?
