This weekend, Mike Huckabee sat down with David Silverman of the American Atheist group about the iconic symbol that is the cross that was formed form steel beams in the rubble of the World Trade Center. Seems this atheist group is outraged….outraged, I tell you, that this alleged violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendments is being displayed in the Ground Zero Memorial Museum.
What is it the atheists want? They want equal representation because obviously (sarc) the steel beams are a Christian icon which violates the separation of church and state. Never mind the fact that nobody complained about this cross during the entire rescue and recovery operation in the days that followed the attack.
The symbol the atheists want? A pair of hands shaking. Um… okay. The cross is just “rubble” to you, Mr. Silverman, and the attacks prove God doesn’t exist, but you want some goofy hand-shaking statue to represent atheists equally at the museum? Why don’t you take some time-traveling way-back machine, go back into the towers and endure the attacks yourself. Then during the search and rescue (should you survive) mission that follows, please dig deep down into the rubble and see if you can find some semblance of two hands shaking that has somehow miraculously formed by the twisted steel. THEN you can bring your “symbol” to the surface, see if you can find like-minded atheists in the pile who want to include your stupid statue in the museum in the future.
