And Muslims are offended. AGAIN! Muslims are offended by everything infidels do. So who cares?
Earlier this week, Gov. Pat Quinn stepped into the controversy, saying he was against the mosque being built near the site of the 9/11 terror attack.
It was a stance Quinn repeated Friday afternoon, when he said, “I do understand going to Pearl Harbor, and I have been there; going to Auschwitz, I’ve been there; and I’ve been to Ground Zero. And I think those are solemn places on Earth; I’ve said that this week. I do think there should be a zone of solemnity around those places.”
Muslim leaders in Chicago were surprised by Quinn’s comments this week. “We were definitely stunned,” said Ahmed Rehab, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. “When I read this for the first time, I was like ‘What? Did I read what I just read?’ I couldn’t believe it.“.. Christina Abraham, of CAIR, believes Quinn’s stand will cost him votes in November. (Who cares, it will gain him a lot more Republican votes)
