GOP Rep. Michael Grimm: WTC Cross Should Be A National Monument

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) is calling for a chunk of scrap metal found in the rubble of the World Trade Center to be made into a national monument.
A New York congressman plans to introduce legislation that would make a national monument out of the so-called World Trade Center cross. The cross consists of two intersecting steel beams that were found intact in the rubble at Ground Zero after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. The cross was moved over the summer to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, but a group called American Atheists sued to block its display. The atheist group claimed the makeshift cross had become a "Christian icon," which was being included in a museum without equal representation of other religions. But Rep. Michael Grimm, R-N.Y., said the cross is "not about Christianity" and should be given national recognition even if it's not in a museum.
The cross is "not about Christianity." OK, then.
