Why can't Christians and atheists agree to disagree?


Atheists don't want any references or reminders of Christianity in public places. There is a cross at the New York twin towers which atheists says makes them mentally and physically ill. There is a cross at Camp Pendleton they want removed. Is it possible for soldiers whose families are Christian to have the monument and atheists to have whatever they want. What if the area is divided? Atheists on one side and Christians on the other.

    Interesting Lone77, I didn't know about the 1871 letter. I think the deal is not so much the crosses as much as SYG. Oh, oh! I don't want to go there. Anyway, once you give up a right, how do you respond to the next demand?

    Hi Jesse, your answer makes sense. Actually there are people on both sides who do not impose themselves on others. The obnoxious, overbearing behavior of some people is the problem. Then those that stereotype based on that behavior.

    The cost involved with the cross wasn't huge, I want to say it was only $20,000 or so, at most. But it's not so much the amount, rather the simple fact that it was spent over nothing.

    Can't comment on the other things, I ran out of characters. :(

    I like your answer but what is this about an upside down cross? I agree that no one should be insulted by it. Giving you a thumbs up!

    I love this! Well atheists won't know unless someone tells them .... I guess? Unless they become Christians?
