You've already heard about the absurd claims being made by an atheist group that's trying to get a cross removed from a new museum at Ground Zero in NYC. Both Jordan and I have written about this case.
We've explained the unbelievable arguments put forth in the lawsuit by American Atheists - a lawsuit that charges that their plaintiffs are experiencing "depression, headaches, anxiety, and mental pain and anguish" - not from the devastating destruction of life caused by the terrorists on 9/11 - but as a "direct and proximate result of the unconstitutional existence of the cross."
As we move forward in preparing our amicus brief to defend this cross in court, it's not surprising that an overwhelming majority of Americans understand and support what's taking place at Ground Zero. A new poll reveals that 72% of Americans favor including the cross in the memorial on the World Trade Center site - that's three out of four Americans.
Americans get it. Displaying this cross, surviving steel beams that rose out of the ashes of the collapse of the World Trade Center, is a symbol of hope, a symbol that has provided comfort to so many who suffered the devastation of the 9/11 attacks firsthand. Most Americans reject this faulty legal ploy by American Atheists to remove this cross.
And, tens of thousands of you already have signed on to our Committee to Protect the Ground Zero Cross, which will become part of our amicus brief to be filed with the court. But, time is short. The brief must be filed in a week. If you haven't yet signed on, please take a moment now to do so. You can add your name here.
I would like to see 100,000 Americans sign on to this Committee. That would send a powerful message to the court - and to the American Atheists - that this cross belongs at Ground Zero. It's an important part of 9/11 history.
Like so many of you, when I gather with my family on Easter, we will celebrate the risen Savior, Jesus Christ, who died on the Cross on Good Friday and was resurrected three days later on Easter Sunday, overcoming sin and death for each of us. Matthew 28 :1-10 reminds us of this glorious truth:
We are pleased to report that the battle over the WWII Memorial Jesus statue has come to an end. It’s a significant victory against angry atheists that allows war heroes to be properly honored. As we expected, the Ninth Circuit’s denial of review delivered a final blow to the attack. The deadline...
As my growing family prepares to celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, with our children and grandchildren this Christmas, we are once again reminded of the true meaning of Christmas. God sent his only Son into the world to redeem us from the penalty of sin. He gave us the...
We're gathered today, just as we have gathered before, to remember those who served, those who fought, those still missing, and those who gave their last full measure of devotion for our country. Few in modern times have spoken as eloquently as President Reagan on the subject of our Veterans. He...
