New York bishop on mosque

Well-reasoned arguments exist for both sides of the debate about locating an Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero in New York City, Robert Rimbo, bishop of the Metropolitan New York Synod, said in an Aug. 30 public statement.

"But how will preventing this center from being constructed help us to deal with [the pain of Sept. 11, 2001]?" he wrote. "There is great fear driving our lives today. How do persons of faith respond to that fear?"
