Park51

I shared this link on my Facebook wall. One person "Liked" it.

I was hoping some of my FB friends who joined the Lets Burn The Koran Frenzy would read it.

Contrary to the mass of bad publicity that has been heaped on it in recent weeks, the building is designed to be multifaith and also secular.

*nearly a quarter of its space would be devoted to a sports and fitness centre
*another floor would be given over to a playground and childcare are
*there would be a restaurant and exhibition space
*on the 12th floor a memorial and sanctuary remembering the events of 11 September 2001 that would again be multidenominational

In addition: its Muslim prayer space, which would occupy two floors in the basement – will not be a mosque at all as the construction of the building does not satisfy the stringent requirements for a sanctified mosque.
