A pair of girder beams that happened to collapse into the shape of a crucifix during the 9/11 bombings may soon be installed at the soon-to-open memorial. Of course, seeing any two sticks crossed anywhere in nature automatically means it’s a sign from God, right? Of course! Because only a being of infinite knowledge, wisdom, and presence in the universe would give proof of his existence by such random, roundabout means. *snort* But I digress…
An outspoken atheist has challenged the erection (?) of this so-called crucifix, and ohhhhh the Christians are angry. In fact, they’re angry enough to kill. That is, judging by the Fox News Facebook page, which was flooded with death threats once they aired the story. That’s right, people are willing to make public death threats over this.
Personally, if they must install a religious symbol there, I think there should be one for each religion represented by the victims, since nearly half weren’t Christians. Or don’t put anything there at all, just let it be. But regardless of what you think of the issue, in no way does it need to devolve into death threats. But I guess that’s where some people go right off the bat. My, such tolerance! Be sure and look at the screenshots he’s posted as proof. Stay classy, Foxtards!
The Fox News Facebook page got over 8,000 death threats posted on its wall after the Communications Director for the American Atheists, Blair Scott, appeared on the network’s “America Live” discussing the group’s lawsuit hoping to stop the erection of a crucifix at the World Trade Center Memorial.
