Subject: WTC Cross
Much has been made recently of the religious cross "found" in the debris at the WTC and so now Christians want it to be part of the spectacle that will replace the towers. An atheistic group is suing to prevent the cross from being placed at the site.

What's your opinion?

Mine is that it should not be part of the site because religion far too often gets to hijack events by having it's signature and symbols placed everywhere. Times are changing and religion is losing it's grip on society.

I think far too many of us do. So if the argument is that it should be part of the site because it's a source of inspiration my question becomes: inspiration for what?

A terrific book on the subject of war and religion's influence over it;
