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

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.

 Feel better?

Quoting samsbaby78:

 I often wonder how awesome the World would be if Atheists Christians put their money and resources into something good rather than constantly fighting against something they don't think exists anyway that doesnt have any effect on their own lives?

Im am atheist and i see no problen with this. Just like the debate back when of praying in schools. It should just be choice. If you dont want to be a part of this, dont and if you do then go for it. I dont see a ligit point in a lawsuit though. It seems kind of rediculous to sue over a cross shaped beam. To an atheist (or to me atleast) if you dont believe in a higher power then its really just a PLUS sign up there.

This. And I presume that some of the many people who died were christian?

Quoting Heather_the_Mom:

I don't see an issue with it.  And, quite frankly, I don't see why Athiests find it offensive.  If you do not believe in a higher power, why do you care?  No one is trying to inflict their beliefs on you with this cross... Some see it as art, others see it as a sign that God is real, and others just see a hunk of metal... I don't get it.

I am atheist and I think it should be left in the museum.  Yes some see it as a religious symbol, but to me I see the cross beams of the building that they are building a museum to remember.  It is a part of that building and apart of history.  Just because some see it as a religious icon does not make it so and does not take away from the fact that it was part of the history that they are trying to preserve.
