Atheist group pimps Facebook for relatives of nonbelievers in 9-11 attacks

A group called the American Atheists have posted a bizarre request on its Facebook Page demanding that friends and relatives of anyone who was a non-believer that perished in the Twin Towers attacks on 9/11 give them the victims’ personal information – right now.

The post today is drawing ire from many atheists who want to know why the need for such personal sensitive information. Many speculate that it is to appeal a court case the group lost last month, after a New York judge threw out their lawsuit demanding that a pair of World Trade Center beams in the shape of a cross be removed from the 9/11 memorial museum honoring the victims.

The American Atheists filed the lawsuit in July, arguing that the “government enshrinement of the cross” was an impermissible mingling of church and state.

Today, they posted this urgent request:

Attention all!
We have an urgent message for anyone reading this who may be in a position to help:
We need to contact anyone who is related to an atheist or other nonbeliever who died in the terrorist attacks on September 11. This is extremely time-sensitive.

We need the names of atheist victims of the attacks, and we need contact information for relatives who knew them personally and can vouch for the fact that they were nonbelievers.
If you have contact with anyone who knows a victim from 9/11, please contact us immediately.
Our phone number is 908-276-7300 extension 7, or email dmuscato@atheists.org. Again this is extremely time-sensitive.
Thank you and please help us spread the word about this to anyone whom you think is in a position to help.

What do you make of this?
