Someone else get's the point.
If an Islamic symbol was being debated, I'd stand with them in defense.
Same with a Wiccan symbol, ANY religious symbol.
It's not just Christianity under attack here.

I think a religious symbol at the site of a religious atrocity is a bit over the top...I would be for a sort of coexist type plaque with all the religious symbols (and the atom for atheists) though...
But the cross is a Christian symbol, and the attack was by religious fanatics...If religion didn't exist (say it went out of fashion in 2000 globally and everyone just decided to be decent people and humanitarians), we would still have the towers...end of the day, no suicide flyers = no terrorist attacks.
I would fix the problem by adding the other colors.
Freedom from religion is more important than my freedom of religion . That is basically what is being said.
and the barring of Christians from political office and other positions such as teachers.
Christians, the most numerous group in this country and for much of our history the most powerful, have at some point in time been tolerant, or atheists wouldn't have been allowed to become so open and vocal
