When I resided in New York City, I visited one of the most unassuming and humble houses of worship I have ever encountered: the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, which sat directly in front of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers (“What would 9/11 architect say?” Commentary, Thursday).
The church was obliterated on Sept. 11, 2001, during one of the most deeply symbolic moments of our new century. Why is it that Greek-Americans have encountered nine years of red tape frustrating their efforts to rebuild what is rightfully theirs, but our misguided leaders, eager to pander to those who financially support or bribe them, are bending over backwards to accommodate some Muslims in their suspect quest to build a mosque near Ground Zero? All that mosque will be is a commemoration of their “victory” over us, the infidels.
Religious favoritism is un-American, violates our Constitution and is very dangerous in a democracy.
