Ground Zero Cross: Court presses atheist group to explain why artifact is 'offensive'

Apparently, being offended is not grounds for legal action. foxnews.com:

A federal appeals court said this week that an atheist group trying to keep the so-called Ground Zero Cross out of the National September 11 Memorial Museum must better explain how displaying the artifact is “offensive” and violates members’ constitutional rights.

The 17-foot-tall, steel beam “cross” was found in the rubble of the World Trade Center twin towers in New York that fell during the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

The cross became a sort of shrine or place of comfort for first responders who often prayed there and left messages or flowers. It was moved away from the debris a few weeks later and became a tourist attraction through several years of reconstruction.

American Atheists filed the suit in 2011, which was thrown out last year by a federal judge in the Southern District of New York.

The appeals court ruling Thursday cites an amicus brief filed by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a nonprofit law firm that specializes in church-state law and protecting the free expression of all religious traditions.

Christian Actress Candace Cameron Is "Controversial" for Being Traditional

From newsbusters.org:

Words like “controversial” weren’t used as People magazine recently boosted ABC anchor Robin Roberts in a cover story and how her mother assured her that God approves of homosexuality. Instead, People saved that word for evangelical Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure in the May 5 issue.

The headline on the Patrick Gomez article was “Faith, Family, and Full House: The former child star opens up about her controversial beliefs – and how they guide her life as a traditional wife and mother.”

Gomez highlighed how Bure believes in “wifely submission” and drew feminist criticism:

Bure’s beliefs – she’s a devout evangelical Christian – have made her something of a Hollywood outsider...A well-known author in Christian circles, Bure advocates for traditional marriage roles as described in the Bible, in which wives play a “submissive” role to their husbands.

Kidnapped boy Willie Myrick sings gospel song until abductor sets him free

Read the whole story at dailymail.co.uk:

A 10-year-old boy has managed to escape the clutches of a kidnapper by singing a gospel song until the suspect couldn't stand it anymore and let him free.

Police say Willie Myrick was abducted by a man from his Atlanta, Georgia driveway, on March 31.

The suspect allegedly lured him with cash and then, when he was close enough, grabbed him and pulled him into his car.

They then drove around for three hours before the man dropped Willie off unharmed in East Point.

But Willie's actions during that terrifying time probably saved his life. 

Willie said he sang the gospel song 'Every Praise' repeatedly until the man told him to get out of the car.

Willie said while he was singing, the man kept cursing and telling him to shut up before eventually kicking him out.

'He opened the door and threw me out,' Willie told WXIA-TV. 'He told me not to tell anyone.'

On Thursday, community leaders came together to warn other parents and children about the kidnapping and celebrate the little boy's bravery and quick thinking.

The man who wrote the song - Grammy Award-winning gospel singer Hezekiah Walker - even traveled from New York to congratulate Willie in person.

'Noah' Review: Brilliantly Sinister Anti-Christian Filmmaking

Read the whole article at breitbart.com:

Using $135 million, he and Paramount have brilliantly and deviously disguised the Pagan god Gaia as the God of the Old Testament … as THE God.

And let's give the Devil his due: using the story of Noah to twist Christianity into something it is not, is a genius piece of propagandizing that is sure to lead many away from God under the mistaken belief that through left-wing environmentalism they are coming closer to Him.  

...

From the Bible: The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 6 The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 7 So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.
