Landmark Church Disallowed but Fed Funds Given to Ground Zero Mosque!


St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church on September 11, 2001.

Inquiring minds are stunned, shocked, and aghast at the idea of Developers for the controversial Park51 Islamic Community Center and Mosque (located two blocks from Ground Zero) applied for roughly $5 million in federal grant money earlier this month which has been set aside for the redevelopment of lower Manhattan after the attacks of September 11:

The audacious move stands to reignite the embers of a divisive debate that dominated headlines surrounding the ninth anniversary of the attacks this fall, say people vested in the issue.

The application was submitted under a “community and cultural enhancement” grant program administered by the Lower Manhattan Redevelopment Corporation (LMDC), which oversaw the $20 billion in federal aid allocated in the wake of 9/11 and is currently doling out millions in remaining taxpayer funds for community development. The redevelopment board declined to comment on the application (as did officials from Park51), citing the continuing and confidential process of determining the grant winners.

Yet, the only church that was destroyed in the September 11, 2001 attack, St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church was NOT ALLOWED to be re-built? Of course, The Church had only stood there since 1922.

Remember this SurvivingCalifornia$$$$.com post entitled “Double standard at Ground Zero – Mosque, yes…Church, no” a month before FoxNews or any other big news agency picked the story up:

Inquiring minds have discovered a disgusting double standard…the government is pushing to build a mosque at ground zero but not rebuilding the only church distroyed in the September 11 attacts by Islamists:

George Demos, the Conservative Republican Candidate for Congress in New York’s First Congressional District issued the following statement on the proposed mosque amid the sacred ruins of Ground Zero and expressed outrage at our own government’s refusal to rebuild the only house of worship that was actually destroyed on September 11th- the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church.
