Title: Christians Are Forcing Their Beliefs on People With Ground Zero Cross

Extremist Christians in America are apparently getting worse and worse in the way they believe. As if it wasn't bad enough that some of them knock on your door to try to convert you, now they want their religious symbol to be the one that represents all who fell on September 11, 2001.

wtccross2large

A cross made from old girders is expected to become a monument at ground zero, to honor all those who died on 9/11, but why a cross? It seems that someone is forgetting that the United States is not a Christian country. There is no national faith, and there will hopefully never be. In fact, forcing a religion on the citizens of a country is fascism and against The Constitution.

Placing this cross as a national monument is not only tacky, but it is a complete slap in the face to all those who fell that day who were not Christian in faith. Some of the victims of 9/11 were Jewish, Muslim, atheist, Wiccan, agnostic and no telling how many other faith paths.

Are these victims unworthy for memorial because they weren't christian?

Apparently a wide variety of viewers of Fox News thinks it's okay to make actual threads of death and violence on atheists in general. These so called Christians spew some of the most vile, hateful and offensive things about an entire group of people while pretending to be about "peace," and "love." Nevermind the fact that the Bible downright promotes violence throughout its many pages, so any of the peaceful Christians are just wrong when they say "These people aren't realy Christians."

Yes. They. Are.

So it seems that while many of these people are gun-toting, right-wing "patriots," they have no problem thinking they have the rights to decide who has the right to live in this nation. This is not a Christian nation, no matter what these people want to believe. Atheists have just as much right to be here, and the Constitution grants them this right.

The apologists for these people think that atheists suing over the cross is a little over-the-top. But the fact of the matter remains that a cross symbolizes one religion: Christianity. The moment you put that monument up as a national memorial to fallen citizens of this country, you automatically draw a connection between this nation and Christianity and that is downright false and insulting. Period.

And these death threats and horrible, hateful wishes of misfortune made by viewers of Fox News, it only shows and further proves that these radical christians are no better than the suicide bombers, the radical Islam idealists that attacked the towers in the first place. Christians and Muslims do, after all, worship the same mythological deity, the same god that commanded the slaughter of nonbelievers whether they be man, woman or child.

Don't believe that? Read the bible. Read the Quran. (2 images)

LOL! Why don't the pagan, Jew and other zelots put up their own dumb symbols instead of whining about what Christians do. I don't know what the atheists would put up; what's the symbol for "nothing".

OBVIOUSLY, (to all except YOU who hate and fear GOD), MOST of the people KILLED/WOUNDED/ MAIMED/AND AFFECTED FOR LIFE by the 11 SEPT 2001 attacks were AMERICANS.

OBVIOUSLY, (to all except YOU who hate and fear GOD), MOST of the people KILLED/WOUNDED/ MAIMED/AND AFFECTED FOR LIFE by the 11 SEPT 2001 attacks were CHRISTIANS.

OBVIOUSLY, (to all except YOU who hate and fear GOD), MOST AMERICANS areCHRISTIANS.

VASTLY MOST btw.

Are you saying that CHRISTIAN AMERICANS, have NO RIGHT TO LIFT THE SYMBOL OF OUR FAITH OVER THE GRAVES OF OUR DEAD WHO SHARED THAT FAITH?

Then YOU know where YOU can stick it.

And MORON, according to islam, islam and Christianity do NOT worship the same deity.

You just HATE and FEAR both GOD and those who are his.

BUMMER.

For YOU.

You put a lot of work into your posts.

I appreciate the effort, indeed!

Keeps things 'lively' you know.

Never swear "allegiance" to anything other than the 'right to change your mind'!

Speaking the TRUTH is NEVER, EVER, any "work" or "effort" for me.

But, it is nice to "appreciated".
