My daughter asked me today how I felt about the proposed Mosque in NYC. I confess, other than reading Sara Palin's sad tweet episode I hadn't really paid much attention to it. I can understand why some people are upset by it, and I can get why some people feel the Muslim community is not being as sensitive as they could concerning the Mosque, but other than that I don't have very strong feelings either way on the subject. So it made me wonder how others here feel about it. I think I agree with Bloomberg though that if handled correctly it could help mend some of the pain, as Bloomberg states: "Of course, it is fair to ask the organizers of the mosque to show some special sensitivity to the situation, and in fact their plan envisions reaching beyond their walls and building an interfaith community. But doing so, it is my hope that the mosque will help to bring our city even closer together, and help repudiate the false and repugnant idea that the attacks of 9/11 were in any ways consistent with Islam." (Like his correct use of the word repudiate!)
What do you think?
