STOP the American Atheists - Do Not ban the cross at ground zero memorial

The American Atheists group has filed a lawsuit. The following is reported by CNN.

(CNN) -- A group of atheists has filed a lawsuit to stop the display of the World Trade Center cross at a memorial of the 9/11 terror attacks.

The "government enshrinement of the cross was an impermissible mingling of church and state," the American Atheists say in a press statement.

The group says it filed the lawsuit this week in state court in New York and posted a copy of the lawsuit on its website.

My Dear Friends:

The CROSS is a representation of HOPE. Our country was founded on a belief in GOD. Our forefathers clearly established their belief in GOD. They fully intended on raising up a country founded on GOD. Christians have just as much right for that cross to be at ground zero than any other group opposing it. This time, the differnce is that Christians did not place the cross at ground zero. The cross IS the beams of TWC; It was found, located in the midst of all the debris. It IS a part of that specific location and should remain in the museum for all the world to see. IT IS TIME our voice be heard. It's time to take a stand.
