Jesus H. Christ

Cross at WTC

“We are all anxious for some type of God’s presence,” said the Rev. Brian Jordan, who dedicated it.

While not exactly the virgin Mary on a grilled cheese sandwich, it's miraculous, really. I'm glad they're finding it a good, permanent home. What else could a bit of WTC rubble consisting of two beams connected at right angles possibly mean except a message from our team's god?

So, why aren't the pious asking why, if God bothered to leave his calling card at ground zero, couldn't he have, you know, come by a little earlier? Why is this "cross" a symbol of his loving presence and not his malevolence?
