To build a Mosque or Not, Stormy Skies and a Free Book

Here’s a three pack special. First up Collin Hansen has a provocative article on the efforts to build a mosque near ground zero in NYC, a counter effort to block the construction and the controversy’s larger impact on American religious life. Here is a snippet:

“If we do not treat a mosque the same as a synagogue or church then the church will be next,” said Bruce Strom, executive director for Administer Justice, based in Elgin, Illinois, outside Chicago. “In fact, the church is often attacked on some of the same grounds, not wanting a particular race to be in a particular area, [such as] Koreans on the North Shore, Hispanics in the western suburbs, and African Americans in the near South Side.”
