About a week ago, a group of people filed a lawsuit in New York to prevent a cross from being erected within the World Trade Center memorial without equal opportunity for other religions who wish to have memorials there as well.
According to the lawsuit, among the 2,792 people killed in the twin towers, 31 were Muslim Americans, approximately 400 to 500 were Jewish Americans, approximately 500 were non-religious Americans, and an unknown number were Americans of other faiths. (So, about half of the people who died were not Christian.)
No other religious or non-religious group has been permitted a memorial.
Fox News had some discussions about this event including this one.

Clearly Christians are angry. They later had Blair Scott, Communications Director for American Atheists, on a show to talk about the lawsuit and immediately the Fox News Facebook page was flooded with thousands of comments. I would link to the post, but apparently Fox removed it. Not before several comments were screen captured though.
Keep in mind, this blog post is not about whether or not the Cross or any other religious things should be allowed at the WTC Memorial, which incidentally is mostly funded with hundreds of millions of dollars of US taxpayer money from people of all religions, including non-religious people.
What it is about however is the swift, brutal and violently extreme comments that self-professed Christians made immediately following Blair Scott’s appearance to express his views on Fox TV.
The list below represents just some of the comments that were captured before the content was deleted. Each commentator’s name is linked to their Facebook profile if it can be found, along with the quote attributed to that person. (If you find an inaccuracy or omission please let me know.)
i say kill them all and let them see for themselves that there is God
Shoot them. Shoot to kill.
To ALL ATHEIEST DIE AN GO TO HELL HAHA IF I COULD ID SHOOT ALL OF YOU IN THE HEAD WITH A 12GUAGE
thats easy shoot them
Shoot em. At least we know where they’re going, waste of oxygen
Nail them to the cross then display it.
I thinly we should hang the leader of that group on the cross with nails through their hands and feet, place a crown of thorns upon their head, RAM a spear through their side all after being whipped and beaten publicly! Just so they can endure what Christ dod so they understand the sacrifice behind what that cross symbolizes.
They’re atheists so it won’t matter if you kill them.
someone show me where they live&and they will live no mere!
Here’s my solution, kill the group..just kidding, you figure it out. I’m so sick of people that pick and choose when they want to truly be American. They can go to Hell oh wait they will.
stupid atheists, I hope God kills them all.
I love Jesus, and the cross and if you dont, I hope someone rapes you!
Any court or lawyer who takes this case should be hung!!!! If you look at some of the people who are atheists they are all miserable looking because they don’t have any faith in anything. You should all go live in another country. You have taken enough of my rights away.
atheist has no rights a snail has more rights than a atheist has I say throw them out to the sharks let them eat them like the ate bin laden
MANY More Comments - LINK
The usual christian response. Don't ever let anyone fool you into thinking christians are moral in any way.
Well, we should be glad these morons are religious people. Just imagine if they didn't have this imaginary thing to keep them from raping and murdering. No wonder they are so scared of us, they think we are also like them, but without moral guidance.
I thought these comments were removed from the page a while ago?
That's what the post above says.
But apparently someone was taking notes =)
I am so totally outraged, at all the death to atheists remarks. That is very christian of them. Openly advocating the killing of other human beings should be against the law. These small minded fucks need some education, mandatory to learn their religion is NOT the only one in America. I cant believe ,my father in WW2 and I in vietnam fought for the rights of these simpletons to be stupid. But, as I say, "ya cant fix stupid" Please somebody wake me up if I am dreaming this shit happened.
Thankfully TC, you also fought for reasonable people.
TeeCee you ain't dream old son it's reality.
But then they don't realise that they would not have the luxury of having a gun to to shoot anything were it not for people of other persuasions and atheitist that produced the first the black powder then the bang stick then the cartridge and so on till today they have their noisy fire sticks. they would all be still running around fearful of lightening and thunder, (TIC) which they do not realise is Thor throwing his hammer around creating bloody big sparks and making an awful din in the sky!
they do not read their holy myth book either that tells them thou shall not kill another person otherwise they will be marked with the mark of Cain.
But as Neal is oft to say you can't stop stupidity in any way.
What a perfect reflection of the mindless savagery their big book of lies is chock full of. It sickens me that such primitive attitudes still exist.
