Freep a Poll! (Fox. Does a cross belong at 9/11 memorial?)
foxnews.com ^ | 7-28-11 | Fox News

Posted on 07/28/2011 6:06:20 AM PDT by dynachrome

Does a World Trade Center Cross belong at the site of the 9/11 Memorial in lower Manhattan, or does the site transcend religion?

No. The 9/11 victims were of many faiths, and a Christian symbol seems inappropriate.

Maybe. Perhaps they should consider symbols representing the religions of all 9/11 victims.

Yes. This is a ridiculous lawsuit. The cross should be returned to its proper place.

How about a cross standing over a crescent broken into pieces which are strewn at the foot of the vertical member.

The usual demand by the most easily offended pressure group and the compliant media looking to provoke controversy (thus ratings). Given that this is a genuine symbol from the 9/11 disaster and has become integral part of the story ever since it was uncovered at “Ground Zero”, to allow this FICTIONAL interpretation of “separation between church and state” to stand is absurd.

I admit I am slow to the realization that all the people who are offended by things simply HATE.

The ACLU and Atheists, hate America for the path it was put on by the founders and it would seem the vast majority of ACLU and Atheist bottom feeders HATE Christians so therefor they are offended by the sight of a cross and try to hide their hate by using the term offended and also pointing out no other religious symbols are present.

You know damned well if there was also a Star of David, the HATERS would still be offended and they would hide their blind hatred by then saying well mudslimes are not represented.

Fine, lets add the Star of David and a bomb vest or a severed head on a pole so as to not offend the most offensive sub-humans on the planet.

And yes, I hate mudslimes but I am not going to hide behind “Im offended” no I hate them for what they are doing and for my lost freedoms. I hate them with every fiber of my being and would not shed a tear if everyone of them went missing from the planet.

The GD liberals have pushed this Conservative/Libertarian once too often and even at the risk of being banned I will no longer soften my language so as to not offend those who are trying to destroy this country.

Just be glad that you are not answering the phones at Sen. Schumer or John McCain's office today. I am tired of those POS calling believers in the brilliance of the Founders names and Chucky boy will be the first to get an ear full from this Tea Party hobbit. This is one New Yorker who will not longer be called names by this Marxist lover and hater of his own country and religion and Israel. Chucky is a perfect example of why antisemitism will never die.

A crescent is literally what the Flight 93 memorial is going to be.

THE 9/11 cross-which miraculously appeared in the ruins of the World Trade Center—DEFINITELY belongs in the memorial, for obvious reasons!!!!

And St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, the ONLY house of worship destroyed in the 9/11 attacks, MUST be allowed to be rebuilt, with NO restrictions that its dome and cross be lower than the 9/11 memorial. These restrictions sound like sharia law, as do the interminable bureaucratic “delays” that are keeping this Holy Temple from being rebuilt!!!!

That MUST not be allowed to stand!!!!

The infamy of the very name of “muslim” for perpetrating these attacks must NOT be erased, especially since the muslims refuse to even apologize, or accept responsibility for their actions!!!! And all too many muslims—to this day—call the suicide hijackers “The Noble Nineteen”, and see them as the moral leaders of islam!!!!

If a cross is allowed, next will come an insistence that a crescent be allowed.

Who is okay with that?

Only if the crescent is broken into pieces which are then strewn about the foot of the cross.

I went too far with post #10. Not all 1.5 billion muslims are guilty for 9/11.

However, those who want to erect a victory mosque near Ground Zero, and those who run subversive muslim Brotherhood mosques, or are working to subvert our legal system with sharia and those horrible international “courts”, ARE guilty!!!

And we should NOT have a crescent-shaped Flight 93 monument, or a World Trade Center monument without its miraculous cross!!!!

Don’t these people realize that that Cross APPEARED in the ruins of the World Trade Center, as a symbol of God’s care for us? Or are they like the pagans in those Orthodox martyr stories, who keep going with their tortures and murders even when the martyr performs miraculous healings before their eyes? Lord have mercy!

I proposed a compromise to the Flight 93 controversy. Put a line of trees right through the middle of the crescent. If it has nothing to do with Islam then no one could interpret it as meaning No Islam.
