(This letter is in response to the “Hannon Opposes Mosques Near Ground Zero” letter from Senator Kemp Hannon that appeared in the Friday, Aug. 27 edition of the Levittown Tribune.)
To my knowledge, 71 percent of New Yorkers are against the building of the mosque near Ground Zero.
No one is arguing freedom of religion. There are all denominations of churches, temples and I read, over 120 mosques in New York alone; and many other denominations I don’t even know about, and nobody objects.
People are hurting!
They want to build a mosque close to a place where over 2,000 loved ones died.
People have feelings. Can’t they respect that? Have some sensitiveness and find another place. This is a religion we are dealing with; they have always been sensitive to people’s feelings.
They must show compassion to their adopted country and move the mosque.
I agree with Senator Kemp Hannon and thank him for speaking out.
