New York Officials Will Not Allow Ground Zero House of Worship to be Built

No, not that one — the mosque is still a “go” of course. This house of worship is a Greek Orthodox church that was destroyed in the 9/11 attacks.

The dhimmi-wits in charge of New York have been stringing along the church’s leaders for years as far as permission to rebuild nearby, and now it appears the church has been denied:

Greek Orthodox leaders trying to rebuild the only church destroyed in the Sept. 11 terror attacks expressed shock this week after learning, via Fox News, that government officials had killed a deal to relocate the church.
Though talks between the church and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey stalled last year, church leaders say they’ve been trying to kick-start discussions ever since. But amid debate over whether a proposed Islamic community center should go forward near Ground Zero, government officials threw cold water on the prospect of any deal with the church — telling Fox News the deal is off the table.

They should change the name of the city to Bizarro World. Nancy Pelosi will probably want to investigate the Greek’s motives for wanting to rebuild.

Maybe New York’s political leadership thought the “Greek Orthodox Church” was just a clever ploy from Wal-Mart to sneak a store into the area — like a cut-rate, non-union Trojan horse with a greeter wearing a chimney-pot hat.
