Ruling: Ground Zero cross can remain

Court rules Ground Zero Cross can remain at 9/11 Museum
By Oregon Family Council

A lawsuit by a group of atheists was tossed out of a federal appeals court Monday that sought to remove the Ground Zero Cross from being displayed at the 9/11 Museum. The court ruled that the naturally occurring cross was a “genuine historical artifact,” more than it was a symbol of Christianity. Judges noted that it was a symbol of hope for many after the tragic events of September 11th.

The group opposing the display of the cross, The American Atheists, originally filed the lawsuit in the Manhattan Supreme Court where it was dismissed before they filed an appeal.
The American Atheists will now decide whether or not they will again appeal to higher court. Their claim is that the cross was unconstitutional and violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.
