9/11, however, is something that I still get overly emotional about to this day. I don't get offended and ask people to take off their cross necklaces when I am in the same room as them. If people find solace in this, then so be it.
People should be able to view it thru their own eyes and make their determinations. I see it as artwork and a symbol for the Christian religion. I dont find it offensive. Im not a christian but I do believe in God.
One has freedom of not.freedom.from. I dont worship the cross but the ONE who.was ressurected. It's a cross. No one is forcing hommage to be paid, no one is making an atheist kiss it and drop money and flowers to it etc.

Thought religion and government were supposed to be separate?
Many museums are run by the government and have religious pieces in them. If the piece is a part of the history that museum is representing it belongs there regardless of any religious significance.
If it's public land, it shouldn't be there. End of story.
