World Trade Center Cross
Arguments were heard Thursday in a case brought by an atheist group. The case will need to be decided quickly, as the 9/11 museum is slated on open in May.
U.S. District Judge Deborah Batts in a ruling released publicly Friday rejected the arguments of American Atheists, which had sued the National September 11 Memorial & Museum’s operators in 2011 on constitutional grounds.
An atheist group wants to block the National September 11th Memorial and Museum from displaying the iconic World Trade Center cross.
A flatbed truck moved the World Trade Center cross from its old location next to St. Peter’s Church to the National September 11th Memorial and Museum.
During the emotional cleanup at Ground Zero, the cross found in the rubble of the World Trade Center became a symbol of solace and peace.
