A mosque in New York City

A plan for a mosque to be build in NYC next to ground zero has been much criticized by some New yorkers. The plan was going to happen , but the idea of making the current building a landmark would stop the mosque dead in it's track. The panel of landmark preservation commission voted unanimously that the building wasn't a landmark, and now the building will be destroyed to create an Islamic center. This is great people should have the right to practice their fundamental right to religion, and that includes being able to pray wherever they want. The idea I think to connect people who want to pray and the terrorist who attacked the world trade center is just racism. Just because it is a Islamic center to allow people to pray doesn't mean it supports terrorism. I think this is stupid to deny a religion a center to pray , because some crazy people on 9/11 destroyed the WTC. You can't define any religion by some people of that religion. If you do that it is the definition of prejudice. So to not allow people because of Prejudice no matter what religion is wrong.

New York City's Landmarks Preservation Commission denied landmark status Tuesday for a building at the site of a proposed Islamic center and mosque near "ground zero."
There is a prayer site in the building currently, so Muslims are peacefully praying in the building already.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission pointed out prior to its decision that it would have nothing to do with the planned use of the structure.
