Default 9/11 Cross "under attack"

http://www.christianpost.com/news/co...sguided-52940/

Apparently the site of it (the cross) to the group asking it be taken down makes them "Sick and feel queesy". Sounds like they being called stupid and told to "get over it".

They also say it's not because it's a cross but because it is "a Worship site for a religion". It's just symbol of hope from one of our countries darkest hours. Come on.

Agreed. I heard it on a radio show that is chock full of people making big deals out of little things. It's actually the group that is fighting the atheist law suit (The ACLJ). It's entertaining to hear how nutragous people get. I just thought it was sad.

very few people in this country realize that "your rights end where they begin for someone else and their rights end where they begin for someone else and so on, and so on."

The reason for the 9/11 attacks was god and the Muslims and the Christians have the same god. So the same god that make christ get tacked on the cross made the muslims blow up the trade towers. Ironic that people are so eager to commemorate his handywork with his symbolism.

EXCEPT..........

Muslims don't believe Christ to be a savior. They don't accept his divinity or the true gospel. They also don't have the same History as Christianity after Ishmael and his mom were cast out by thier dad/husband. They don't believe in the cross. Furthermore, If you actually knew what you were talking about, you would understand that the Muslim faith and the Christian faith are very different. If you believe Stereotypes you'll probably disagree with me. That's ok, because I know my faith, I know the Muslim faith (because I studied it) and I know that they aren't anything close to similar.

The Cross means nothing to Muslims. The Bible means nothing to Muslims. Nice try though.

Judaism, Islam and Christianity all branch from the same tree. You can call it a Macintosh, a red delicious or a granny smith, but they are all apples that grew on a apple tree. Are you denying that these religions all came from a common source??

No, but I'm saying that they are completely different. Judaism and Christianity are the same religion. One is the history of the other. Islam is a split of VERY EARLY Judaism. It has different prophets, different Dogmas, It's a completely different religion. Most would argue that they even worship a perversion of the Jewish/Christian God. If it was the same God, who is unchanging and just, then there wouldn't be that difference because that would mean he lied to one which would mean he wasn't just or unchanging.

Because Islam has different prophets and views on salvation/heaven/hell/ETC, it would make no sense to say that the cross commemorates an Islamic attack. To a Muslim I'm not more an infidel then you are. If anything, I think they should keep the cross because of the hope that it represents in this specific scenario.
