Court Says Ground Zero Cross Can Stay

Posted Monday, July 28th 2014 @ 12pm

A memorial cross will remain in place at the National September 11th Memorial and Museum in New York City.  A three-judge federal court panel ruled today the cross located at Ground Zero is "a symbol of hope" and historical in nature.  The ruling is a blow to a group of atheists who had filed suit to have it removed.  The 17-foot-tall cross was put together by first responders from steel beams that were found in the rubble of World Trade Center's North Tower.
