    FILE - In this July 23, 2011 file photo, Rev. Brian Jordan sprinkles water on the September 11 cross during a ceremony in New York. A judge should toss out a lawsuit by a national atheists group seeking to stop display of the cross-shaped steel beam found among trade center wreckage, lawyers for the operators of the Sept. 11 memorial at ground zero say. The lawyers said in papers filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan on Monday, Aug. 13, 2012 that the 17-foot-tall beam will be displayed as a historical object because it tells part of the story of the Sept. 11, 2001, rescue and recovery effort.

Most of the Christmas nativity scenes that local churches had placed in a Southern California coastal park for nearly six decades have been displaced by non-believers and the churches say it was a coordinated attack. But atheists got all but three of the spaces this year because of a new lottery system. The coalition got two spots and one went to Isaac Levitansky of Chabad Channukah Menorah. (AP Photo/Ringo H.W.
