A controversial debate has just received a ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit. The decision in the case of American Atheists, Inc. et al v. Port Authority of New York and New Jersey et al. resulted in a ruling against the atheist organization.
American Atheists, Inc. claims that the inclusion of the World Trade Center Cross in the National September 11 Memorial & Museum violates the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution. The group says that establishing the symbol at the site is unconstitutional, citing that it does not acknowledge that atheists were also affected by 9/11.
