There are a lot of things being said about the Ground Zero Mosque. Should it stay, or should it go? Answering that question all depends on who you ask.
You see, there are many that say it should absolutely go. And their reason is based on an emotional one. With many people agreeing, yes, it is symbolically a slap in the face. But mainly because of who is leading the movement.
If it was a moderate, yet compassionate Muslim leading the effort, people would probably be okay with the idea of having this mosque only two blocks from ground zero. But, with this Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, there are far too many questions surrounding him and his cause.
As parents always tell their children, “It’s not what’s on the outside, it’s what’s on the inside that counts.” And how true that is. It’s what is going to go on inside that will count. Which is one of the many questions that have people debating this mosque.
There are three main things that are on the minds of people:
- Who is Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf?
- Where will the money come from to build it?
- What will be taught inside?
