Government says Greek Orthodox Church destroyed on 9/11 will not be rebuilt

Wow. I mean wow.

Greek Orthodox leaders trying to rebuild the only church destroyed in the Sept. 11 terror attacks expressed shock this week after learning, via Fox News, that government officials had killed a deal to relocate the church.

The St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, once a tiny, four-story building in the shadows of lower Manhattan, was destroyed in 2001 by one of the falling World Trade Center towers. Nobody from the church was hurt in the attack, but the congregation has, for the past eight years, been trying to rebuild its house of worship. …

Confronted with the Port Authority’s verdict, Father Mark Arey, of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, said it’s the first he’s heard that.

“Negotiations did break off last year. We were expecting to hear from their lawyers — we never did. We’re still expecting to hear from them,” he told Fox News. “We’re disappointed. … 130 Liberty Street was promised to us.”



The government didn’t even have the class to let them know first. Instead they find out 2nd hand. And of course this REAKS of hypocrisy of the government which says they want to promote religious diversity but won’t allow this church to be rebuilt that was crushed at the hands of blood thirsty, west hating Islamic terrorists. Where are you Mayor Bloomberg????

Maybe if they converted it into a mosque Mayor Bloomberg would come out in support of its rebuilding.
