Statement by Senator Craig M. Johnson, (D-Nassau):

"I am among those who have a strong emotional reaction to the mosque controversy and am opposed to its construction in the shadow of Ground Zero. There is no dispute that the mosque's developers have a constitutional right to build there, but that doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. That's why I support efforts by the Governor, Arch Bishop Dolan and others to find a alternative site that is not in close proximity to where more than 3,000 Long Islanders, New Yorkers, and Americans of all faiths were killed."

STATEMENT BY SENATE REPUBLICAN LEADER DEAN SKELOS

STATEMENT BY SENATE REPUBLICAN LEADER DEAN SKELOS

 

One moment Nancy Pelosi talks about upholding freedom of religion, the next she says people who exercise their freedom of speech to protest construction of a Mosque near Ground Zero should be investigated.  This issue is not about religious freedom, it’s about what’s right and what’s wrong. There is no need for an  investigation  -- the Mosque is overwhelmingly opposed by the majority of people in the state, and throughout the country. Most importantly, it is opposed by the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives on 9/11.
