You either think having a symbol that represents Islam on a memorial is ok, or isnt. Despite the intention, it is there in plain view.
FallenHero, I wasn'tt talking about you, I'm talking about every racist nutjob who I've had to hear talking incessantly about this since the design was announced and some crackpot preacher (without a church) said it glorified the terrorists. This debate has been going on for months in Somerset.
The crescent isn't a 100% muslim symbol. It's not a 100% religious symbol. The term crescent was used as an architectural term. The design was changed (ie reworded and a few more trees added) a few months ago.
Overwhelmingly, the familes of the victimes from Flight 93 supported the design. And by overwhelmingly, it's ober 95% of them, maybe even higher. That's good enough for me.
And I agree with Jim, it's a huge waste of money, regardless of the design.
