A commentor to a post below on the Ground Zero Mosque has pointed out one of the truly grotesque but underreported aspects of this insanity - the fact that, while Mayor Bloomberg and President Obama are out hawking for Imam Rauf, NYC has yet to allow the rebuilding of a church destroyed in the attack on the World Trade Center.
The Greek Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas was built in 1922. The World Trade Center Complex was later built next to the Church. Then, as the Church's website tells the story, "[o]n September 11th, the entire weight of World Trade Center Tower 2 came down on St. Nicholas Church, completely destroying the building and its contents. Only a handful of damaged icons and religious items were found amongst the rubble."
The Church has been seeking to rebuild since the act of war on 9-11. NYC, however, has apparently put up a series of bureaucratic delays and broken numerous promises along the way. In light of the recent acts of Bloomberg and Obama, this is truly outrageous. For much more on this story, see here.
