Hold up a cross and watch a vampire shrink back in pain and fear.
Vampires are evil, parasitic leeches – just like liberals – and as the unholy spawn of the devil they cannot abide the holiness of God as demonstrated in His cross.
Turns out – and this according to atheists themselves - that the power of the cross works on them, too. And apparently just as well.
You see, if there were any actual reality to atheism, what would the cross be? Just two sticks held together at a perpendicular angle. No pain there. It’s just a simple geometric figure. Do isosceles triangles cause you so much agony and emotional devastation? Parallelograms?
But you see, the cross DOES mean an awful lot more than what atheists claim it does.
The cross represents the reality that God entered the world, assumed a human nature, and conquered sin and death by taking sinful man’s place and dying (as a man) and being raised from the dead (because God can’t die).
And the power of the cross makes the demons that haunt atheists’ shriveled souls start crawling and howling and causing all kinds of freaky symptoms:
Atheists Continue to Push for 9/11 Cross Ban, Claiming It Has Caused Them ‘Physical and Emotional’ Pain

Atheist activists have a knack for picking riveting, infuriating and seemingly never-ending battles. During the Christmas season, they aim for nativities on public property and at the end of every school year, their targets set on commencement prayers.
While these battles have become all-too-familiar, there’s one showdown brewing that distinguishes itself from the rest — atheists’ demands that a cross found in the rubble following the September 11, 2001 attacks not be included in a museum that is being planned to commemorate the lives lost during the tragedy.
American Atheists (AA), a group working to advance the secular cause, has been leading the charge against the Ground Zero cross since July 2011, when the organization first filed suit against it. TheBlaze’s Meredith Jessup has explored this issue, in detail, on TheBlaze Blog, where she explained AA’s main arguments against the cross’ inclusion.
“The atheists’ suit claims that by including the cross in a museum on public property, the government is unconstitutionally endorsing a religion,” Jessup writes. “It also asserts that the mere presence of the cross would result in emotional — and possibly even physical — injuries among atheists who will feel anxious and excluded.”
Jessup isn’t exaggerating. The organization’s complaint reads, in part:
The plaintiffs, and each of them, have suffered, are suffering, and will continue to suffer damages, both physical and emotional, from the existence of the challenged cross. Named plaintiffs have suffered, inter alia, dyspepsia, symptoms of depression, headaches, anxiety, and mental pain and anguish from the knowledge that they are made to feel officially excluded from the ranks of citizens who were directly injured by the 9/11 attack and the lack of acknowledgement of the more than 1,000 non- Christian individuals who were killed at the World Trade Center.
There is nothing “unconstitutional” about that 9/11 cross no matter HOW warped your reading of the Constitution is.
Because nobody made it. The first responders simply found it in the ruins, just like it was. They literally found a piece of wreckage that gave them comfort and so they preserved it.
Atheists are welcome to find a symbol in the 9/11 ruins demonstrating that atheism was there on 9/11. But oh, that’s right: atheism HAS no symbol because atheism is mindless idiocy and doesn’t stand for ANYTHING beyond hatred for reality and contempt for the God who created it.
And so atheists blame their symptoms of demon-possession on the cross when they ought to recognize that it’s just God demonstrating Himself to them according to Romans chapter One:
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. 17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
And being confronted with that reality makes them just plain psycho.
