Leadership crisis at the Ground Zero Mosque

Developers are apparently having problems finding an Islamic Imam who isn't offensive.  Imagine that:

A recently appointed senior adviser to the Muslim cultural center and mosque planned near the site of New York's September 11 attacks has stepped down, the center's developer said.

The move came days after remarks surfaced in which he said homosexuality was most often the result of sexual abuse.

"Imam Abdallah Adhami announced today that he will no longer serve as Senior Adviser to Park51," the project's developer, Sharif El-Gamal, said in a statement posted on Facebook.

The resignation came just weeks after the project's public faces, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his wife, Daisy Khan, stepped down as leaders of the project.

You know... I had an idea...

In 2012, an ardent supporter of all things Islamic should become available to step in and lead.  This person is seen as a spiritual guide for many and it would fulfill a personal goal of reaching out to Muslims worldwide. 

Just sayin'.

Don't ya just hate it when liberals are so conflicted by their own PC garbage that they have to throw one darling overboard at the expense of another? A ship of fools, to be sure.

Jim Addison:

Obama? Nah - he's supporting the islamist demonstrators in Egypt, where 90% of women suffer genital mutilation. Mubarak and his wife have been the leading voices against this barbaric practice, and Egypt outlawed in 2007 - but people like those "democratic" protesters ignore the law to torture their young women.

That's Obama's side, so even he is probably too repugnant and radical for a so-called "moderate" muslim mosque.

"An ardent supporter...." Gee, do you have anyone particular in mind!

It's time to "plant a pig". Problem solved.
