Sign the petition to New York City Mayor Bloomberg to allow clergy to participate in the 9/11 memorial.

 

Take Action as New York City Mayor bans prayer but not politics for 9-11 Memorial

Ten years ago, in the wake of the worst terrorist attack in our nation’s history, Americans turned to God for solace. Members of the clergy on the scene and across the nation gave aid, comfort, and hope to the shocked, the fearful, and the bereaved. As the tenth anniversary of that day approaches, we would do well to turn our eyes again toward our Protector.

Unfortunately, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg would have us look the other way.

At a Ground Zero commemoration for the families of victims, Mayor Bloomberg is allowing the presence of politicians and presidents, but no pastors or prayer. The mayor of course will be there, but politicians weren’t then — and are not now — nearly enough.

Please sign our petition to Mayor Bloomberg asking that he give pastors and prayer a place at this most solemn remembrance of such a pivotal moment in our nation’s history. As we deliver the petition to the mayor’s office, pray with me that he’ll see that this nation needs prayer more than politics.

CultureBloomberg Bans Clergy From 9/11 Ceremony but Ground Zero Mosque OK

NYC Mayor Bloomber Bans Clergy from 9-11 Ceremony

So says Fox Nation, based on reporting by the Wall Street Journal.

Religious leaders are calling on Mayor Michael Bloomberg to reverse course and offer clergy a role in the ceremony commemorating the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

Rudy Washington, a deputy mayor in former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s administration, said he’s outraged. Mr. Washington organized an interfaith ceremony at Yankee Stadium shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“This is America, and to have a memorial service where there’s no prayer, this appears to be insanity to me,” said Mr. Washington, who has suffered severe medical problems connected to the time he spent at Ground Zero.

Fox Nation pairs that story with this flashback, in which Bloomberg goes to bat for the Ground Zero Mosque on religious freedom grounds.

What if the majority of New Yorkers, or the majority of Americans, want clergy at the 9-11 ceremonies? If asked, I suspect that they do.

The announcement drew particular outrage from Rudy Washington, who served as deputy mayor under former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and organized an interfaith service at Yankee Stadium in the wake of the attacks.

“This is America, and to have a memorial service where there’s no prayer, this appear to be insanity to me,” Washington told the Wall Street Journal. “I feel like America has lost its way.”

New York City Councilman Fernando Cabrera, a pastor at a Bronx church, said he was similarly shocked and disappointed that clergy would be excluded, feeling like it was “wiping out the recognition of the importance that spirituality plays on that day.”

Of course it makes it even more of an outrage when you consider Bloomberg was a vocal supporter of the so-called “Ground Zero mosque“.

More 9/11 Outrage: NYC Mayor Bans Religious Services at Ground Zero Anniversary Memorial

We will never forget and ………….we will never forget how shabbily the heroes are being treated

It just keeps getting more insulting and outrageous to America, to the fallen, and to the heroes of 9/11. America is being hijacked again, on the tenth anniversary of this attack.

To review:

The President of the United States recently delivered a treasonous tribute to the “Muslim victims” of 9/11 during a glittering gala dinner at the White House. The approval of an Islamic “victory mosque” at Ground Zero is a huge middle finger to America. The 9/11 memorial at the former World Trade Center is a very weird, Third World-ish, freakshow “tribute”to the victims. Atheists have tried to have a cross of twisted metal removed from the memorial.

Former FDNY firefighter Sean Hickey told UNCOVERAGE.net that he and other first responders are dismayed that they are not invited to the 9/11/11 ceremony at Ground Zero, they will have their “own” event later.

Sean also says cops, firefighters and construction workers who have contracted illnesses due to their exposure to hazardous chemicals, fumes and dust at Ground Zero must now be background-checked before they receive their settlement payments, to make sure they are not terrorists.

And now this:

New York City’s Muslim-appeasing mayor Michael Bloomberg has ordered that there will be no religious services at the 9/11 10 year commemoration. No clergy are invited.

But, the mayor says, there ABSOLUTELY damn WILL be a victory” mosque built on the spot where 3000 Americans died at the hands of Muslims.

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg — What a horrible man

Bloomberg Defends Ground Zero Mosque as Freedom-of-Faith Issue

In his fiercest defense yet of the mosque proposed near Ground Zero, Mayor Bloomberg declared yesterday that it must be allowed to proceed because the government “shouldn’t be in the business of picking” one religion over another.

“I think it’s fair to say if somebody was going to try, on that piece of property, to build a church or a synagogue, nobody would be yelling and screaming,” the mayor said.

“And the fact of the matter is that Muslims have a right to do it, too.”

Another Insult: NYC First Responders Not Invited to 9/11 Ceremony at Ground Zero?!

This decision cannot be allowed to stand.

hat tip: NYFD first responder/survivor Sean Hickey

We just had the President of the United States deliver a treasonous tribute to the “Muslim victims” of 9/11 during a glittering gala dinner at the White House. The approval of an Islamic “victory mosque” at Ground Zero is a huge middle finger to America.

How can a broken national heart heal from all this? The fact is, we can’t. And now, there is THIS!

9/11 TV 10 Year Anniversary Specials

Tonight begins the first of more than 40 TV specials marking the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11 — the biggest outpouring of work on a single event anyone can remember.

The Steven Spielberg-executive produced “Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero” — six hours in all — for Discovery (8 p.m.) may be the most-ambitious of the specials. But it will not be the most emotional.

CBS’ updated “9/11: Ten Years Later” (Sept. 11, 8 p.m.) is expected to be a standout, in part because of what it has — footage of the first plane crashing into Tower One of the World Trade Center.

Nearly a decade after “9/11” originally aired, the Emmy-winning documentary, narrated by Robert De Niro, remains “one of the most important historic records of the tragedy and heroism of that day,” CBS producer Susan Zirinsky says.

The story of Engine 7 Ladder 1 in TriBeCa, in the shadow of the Trade Center, was the most-watched 9/11 documentary of its time.

And because of that, Zirinsky and her team wanted to maintain the integrity of the original footage. Still, they did update it by revisiting the 14 firefighters from the original documentary to see what’s happened to them, and to get their take on the events of the intervening decade.

“Our focus is on this one firehouse, but what it becomes is a snapshot of 9/11,” she says.
