What Do They Care?

Just a couple of quick things here. I was perusing the stories over yonder at ABC News and I came across an article about a bunch of atheists who are suing over "...the inclusion of cross-shaped steel the exhibit at the National September 11th Memorial and Museum." I guess it's a couple of steel beams that look like a cross that was in the wreckage of the World Trade Center buildings. And I guess that it comforts some people. Those people aren't atheists, but they're still comforted.

The atheists in question here are having a cow for some reason. They say that the iron cross isn't a religious symbol and that a bunch of people shouldn't be acting like it is. What I don't understand is that if they're atheists, why do they even care? For people that don't believe in something, they sure do get all worked up over other people who do believe in it. I wonder if they have the same disposition towards small children who still believe in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy? Does that both them as well? A lot of them are such pain in the asses about it, I'm going to guess that it does.

But here's the other weird thing. Along the sidebar, there was a selection of videos that are supposed to be related to the article at hand. It started off OK. But just look at how it ended!

Umpire makes a bad call?! What the what does that have to do with Ground Zero?! Wait. It does say on that video that it's "Not the First". Maybe "Not the First" means "zero"? That could be. Then again, "Not the First" could be anything BUT the first, so that really doesn't narrow it down very much at all. I don't know how that ended up there, but I do know that it makes about as much sense as the atheists worrying about some cross.
