The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
While America mourned the 11th anniversary of the Islamic attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, atheist radicals were throwing fuel on the fire. While millions were praying for the friends and families of precious souls lost, self-styled “progressives” were preying upon the most significant symbol of hope to which many of the grieving clung.
The 17-foot steel-beam cross, found amid the rubble of the once towering World Trade Center, is at the center of a lawsuit filed by the American Atheists Foundation. While nearly the entire 9/11 memorial site remains purely secular in nature, these secular absolutists complain of unequal representation. Such a bizarre measure of inequality could arise solely in the blinded mind of a “free-thinking” relativist.
Fortunately, these Christ-hating heathens don’t have a legal leg upon which to be hopping mad. In cases like Abington v. Schempp, the U.S. Supreme Court has noted repeatedly that “religion has been closely identified with our history and government.”
In fact, the high court ruled explicitly in Lynch v. Donnelly that religious elements within a larger government display are perfectly constitutional where both a religious and a “secular purpose” are represented. There could be no better example than the case at hand.
