This has to be one of the most obscene things I have ever seen done since I entered this business in 1979.
After all the trauma New York City has had to endure since 9-11..the city will have a 10 year remembrance ceremony next month on that day.
Now the mayor, Michael Bloomberg has declared there will be no religious symbols at the ceremony.
No rabbi's, no preachers..no imams...nothing religious.
Who does this guy think he is?
Some say that's good because its not about the religious teachers...its about those who died.
But...there are many people who found, and I'm sure still find comfort in their religion when other religious zealots killed their family members on that fateful day.
Bloomberg is wrong about a lot but he hit the ball out of the park on this one.
I don't agree with this at all.
One man tells the Wall Street Journal "This is America, and to have a memorial service where there's no prayer, this appears to be insanity to me," he went on to say, "I feel like America has lost its way."
So, do I.
And if that makes you want to throw up..this...the same mayor has decreed The first responders that carried their own and other people's family members from Ground Zero out of harm's way have been excluded from the 10th 9/11 ceremony.
Thanks..but we don't need you here.
Lets see...they were good enough to run into burning building and pull people out.
I do feel America's losing its way.
We can fix this..but we're losing our culture to political correctness.
And we're losing out country to lack of common sense.
That's my point pov view whats yours?
