I have been following the supposed controversy involving the proposed building of an Islamic Center in New York City near Ground Zero.
When I first heard about this I did not like it one bit, I was against it wholeheartedly. But, now that I have had a few days to contemplate on it and read a little more about it, I am indifferent.
I guess the thing that really bothered me about this whole mess was the thought of building an Islamic Center on the site of where the Towers once stood proudly. However, after reading more about it, the site is actually 2 blocks from where the 9/11 tragedy took place, not on the former World Trade Center site.
The last I checked we still live in a country that provides freedom of religion. That means ALL religions! It is one of the bedrock premises this great country was founded on.
