If memory serves, isn't that the same hunk of debris the xians were pointing at after the attack saying it WAS some kind of sign? And, if that particular configuration is NOT significant, why choose it over any other?  Like, I don't know, a giant A.

As an atheist and secular humanist outraged by the religious fanaticism that caused the attack I have always equated the cross with reason and peace and humanity. Not!

The judge said the purpose of the artifact's display is "traditional and secular". That's quite a spin!

Wow. I have to admit I'm really surprised. Apparently myself and many other people are not reasonable observers.

Judge states that "no reasonable observer would view the artifact as endorsing Christianity".  yeah, how could a hunk of metal shaped like a CROSS being revered by people look like an endorsement of Christianity? My first thought was secular buddhism! lol
 
So ironic that a religious symbol will be displayed at the site of a religion-based attack!
