(May 18, 2014) To considerable media fanfare, the National September 11 Memorial Museum held a dedication ceremony on Thursday, May 15 and plans to open its doors to the general public this coming Wednesday, May 21.
The new museum pledges itself to "demonstrating the consequences of terrorism on individual lives and its impact on communities at the local, national, and international levels" - and if 9/11 hasn't already been elevated to the status of a full-blown religion in America, this should do it once and for all.
The new 9/11 religion will be devoted to endlessly remembering the events of 9/11 ("Never forget!"), and its main center of worship will be -- where else? - "Ground Zero." Ah, but the vast majority of the museum is not above ground, but rather below it. This was done so that visitors may "be in the very space where the Twin Towers once stood," and also "because federal preservation law mandated that those remnants be publicly accessible.
