"American Atheists, an activist group committed to church-state separatism, has long fought the presence of the symbol, which was formed by steel beams and discovered at the World Trade Center site in the wake of the terror attack." Billy Hallowell, from The Blaze. Are the beams not a part of American history? What's your take?

Hi Amanda108. So true. Why have a museum if it doesn't represent the significant aspects of a historical event?
M.T. Dremer. A fair comment. I appreciate your input.
Hi junkseller. The lawyers, though, were over-the-top in stating,“Named plaintiffs have suffered, dyspepsia, symptoms of depression, anxiety, and mental pain from the knowledge that they are made to feel excluded..." Secular items will be included...
Suing requires standing which requires injury. It's pretty common to see these types of claimed injuries (and very difficult to disprove as being real). I don't really agree with them, I just don't find any harm in the conversation.
Hi junkseller. The museum owner does not object to having an atheist symbol present, though no one knows what it would look like... So I guess a discussion has ensued. We'll see how it all plays out. I imagine the cross will stay, but who knows?
