Mosque Controversy Near Ground Zero- What about the First Amendment?

Religious equality is something that the founding fathers of our country thought very important. So important that they put it in the first section of the constitution. In fact, the first amendment is critical to people who practice any faith in the U.S. including the Muslim faith.

A Mosque is set to be built near Ground Zero. A place considered Hallowed Ground where thousands of people were injured or killed when terrorist flew into the World Trade Center on Sept 11, 2001. Now, the American people are claiming that a mosque should not be built near Ground Zero. However, the mosque is actually 2 blocks away from Ground Zero. And in those two blocks you will pass a church, a temple and a synagogue.

Amid the outcry, the author of this blog gives her opinion on the Religious Realities of the Mosque near (not AT) Ground Zero.
