Atheists are now suing New York City over the inclusion of a steel beam cross at the World Trade Center Memorial.

The 20-foot cross was lowered into the future site of the September 11th Memorial and Museum on Saturday.

It was found amid the rubble of Ground Zero.

Members of "American Atheists" say they will not allow the Christians who died on 9/11 to get preferential representation.

They want the cross removed, or to be given space for an atheist exhibit.
