Atheist Group Seeks to Tear Down World Trade Center Cross

By Rick Pearcey • July 29, 2011, 08:44 AM

John Jalsevac reports at LifeSiteNews:

When two steel girders were found intact, in the shape of a cross, in the middle of the wreckage of the World Trade Center after 9/11, it was hailed by many as a mini “miracle” and a sign of hope for a country beleaguered by a devastating terrorist attack.

Now, however, an atheist group has filed a lawsuit that seeks to tear down that cross, which was moved recently to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York City.

Certain atheist groups may not be able to tolerate it, but America is not founded upon abstract and manipulable "values" of "equality" or religious or philosophic "neutrality" but upon the rock of individuals having been "created equal" and thereby "endowed" by the "Creator with certain unalienable rights." 

The cross is a symbol, rooted in verifiable history, of a profound and humane resistance against evil, a salvific resistance launched in space and time by a Creator who is anything but disinterested in the face of sin, death, decay, the loss of meaning, and the pain of alienation.

If I thought atheism coherently and rationally answered the basic philosophic questions in ways that can lived out consistently in the real world, I would affirm it as true and seek to live by it.

But it is a god that fails, a god the produces societies that fail, and a god that crushes the human spirit. Free-thinkers revolt against such a god. And that is very good.
