Rebuild Churches Instead of Burning Korans

As much as the Ground Zero Mosque offends me, I cannot see how throwing Korans into a bonfire honors the memory of those who died on September 11, 2001.

Today, I have an article up at The American Spectator (which hopefully will soon be on the IC main page) about St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church. It was destroyed when the South Tower collapsed upon it. You would think heaven and earth would have moved to rebuild St. Nicholas. Instead, the Port Authority stands in the way while Mayor Bloomberg and President Obama have nothing to say.

The point here is if we want to honor those who died on September 11, 2001 our efforts are better directed towards rebuilding St. Nicholas. They need time, money and other materials.
If you are interested in helping out donations can be sent to St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, P.O. Box 340968, Brooklyn, New York 11234.
