Building a Christian Church at Ground Zero Is Not as Easy

In the unlikely event that any RWN readers take seriously liberal claims that they are backing the Ground Zero Victory Mosque on First Amendment grounds, here‘s what happens when you try to rebuild a Christian church in the area:

Nine years after 911, St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church at Ground Zero remains to be rebuilt. Brother, can you spare a little fast-tracking?

So, New York big-shots can fast track a Muslim mosque near the site of the attacks on New York and the destruction of the WTC and the little Greek Orthodox church that was crushed when the South Tower fell but in all this time they can’t seem to find the wherewithal to allow this little house of worship that served not only the Greek community but welcomed anyone who felt the need to find a little peace and solitude amidst the hustle and bustle of the city.

The trouble is, Greeks don’t have loyal allies in the Mayor’s Office and the White House. Consequently, bureaucrats have refused to cooperate, preventing the church from being rebuilt. Fortunately for Muslims, they don’t have that problem.
