I have heard only a little of the debate over the 9/11 cross, so I won't go to far into it. I think perhaps both sides have blown this one out of proportion. On the atheist side, I think a lawsuit might be a bit much. I agree that a set of cross beams (get it? cross beams?) set at a 90 degree angle found in the debris of a collapsed commercial building being seen as a sign from god in the wake of the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history is more than a bit of a stretch. I am not sure what it is meant to be a sign of or a message about. It just seems a bit weak. That said, I kind of have a live and let live taste in my mouth about this one. On the other side, however, things get a bit freaky. Please see here, and here (or for just some general, if mostly unrelated, crazy, here). A twelve gauge to the head? Really, Joe Martinez?
