Mosque time-out?

Monday, September 13, 2010 - 3:35pm

Controversy continues to swirl around the proposed Islamic center under construction near Ground Zero, but could compromise now be ahead?

The Imam behind the center spoke this morning and signaled that all options are still on the table.

"We are working through what will be a solution, God willing, that will resolve this crisis, defuse it," said Imam Feisal Rauf.

Imam Rauf wouldn't say whether that could include moving the center.

Over the weekend he said changing the project could help extremists recruit terrorists and put Americans at risk.

The statements came as a new poll shows 70 percent of American voters think Muslims have the right to build near Ground Zero, but 63 percent think it's inappropriate.

The controversy highlights what seems to be a growing divide over religion in America.
