A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court has found that “the actual purpose in displaying the Cross at Ground Zero has always been secular.”
That’s right, the court ruled the purpose of displaying a Christian symbol has always been secular.
The appeals court ruled on Monday that the memorial cross at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York can remain at the newly-opened facility because the purpose of the cross is secular, not religious.
Perhaps the judges are unfamiliar with the word "secular." Perhaps we could point out that a synonym for the word is profane. Now the cross at Ground Zero is legally PROFANITY. I know a lot of atheists might agree, but I'm pretty sure all the Christians out there can't be happy.
