The support by government at all levels (national, state and local) for the Soho Properties' Ground Zero Mosque project at 45-47 Park Place, New York NY 10007 raises numerous suspicions. It is the position of this blog that the government approval and preferential treatment of the project may violate the bedrock First Amendment principle of separation of church and state, as expressed by the First Amendment's Establishment Clause. Please check my summary legal analysis of the Establishment Clause implications.
A protest against the project will be held Sunday, August 22nd, and more information is available here.
I plan to be at the protest/rally/event (you pick the term) and will report live Sunday.
