Museums, beware: The atheists want to censor your collections.
That is the essential argument of the organization American Atheists before a federal appellate court in its continuing litigation over the so-called World Trade Center Cross. The cross is a piece of fused metal that became an instant defining image of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and a source of solace for people trying to understand the tragedy. In particular, the cross became a site for daily reflection for rescue workers, volunteers, survivors and others in the days following Sept. 11, 2001.
The atheists want to erase that history.
