New York archbishop troubled by rancorous debate on mosque
Catholic World News - August 25, 2010
New York’s Archbishop Timothy Dolan has voiced new concern about the angry tone of debate over plans to build an Islamic center near the site of Ground Zero. The archbishop met on August 24 with New York Governor David Paterson, and said afterward that he thought the city’s unity was being jeopardized by the dispute. Archbishop Dolan said that he himself did not have “strong feelings” over the placement of the mosque.

Muslims do need a united effort to express the core values of their faith.Our Protestant brethren suffer at the hands of thousands of churches, all fashioning Christianity to suit their beliefs. Muslims have no spokesman either. Interpretation of the Koran is a free-for-all. \\
