Bloomberg tells world God not welcome in New York
I realize that you probably expected me to rant about Obama’s latest stimulus plan. And, while Obama’s actions were in keeping with his dishonest, socialist, and Erebusic anti-traditional Americanism – there is something else taking place even more offensive than Obama – and ultimately with darker consequences.
On September 11th, there will be a public event in New York City commemorating the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our nation. And, as remarkable as it may seem, New York’s Mayor Bloomberg has issued the dictate that God isn’t invited.
Bloomberg is refusing to allow members of the clergy to play any role in the public memorial service – he has banned any references to faith and prayer. To say that this is an affront is an understatement.
But, there is something I find more disturbing. During his years as mayor, Bloomberg has participated in prayer vigils and services commemorating 9/11 – now we can be assured his actions were and concerns for the feelings of the people were fraudulent. Fraudulent, because he pretended to be concerned about the feelings of those who had suffered lost – which now we can believe were just pretentious public acts. If you are concerned about grieving person’s that means you take into account their feelings of faith as well.
Not that it matters to him – it was prayer and faith that not only got New York through the terrorist attacks, but helped the people recover from them. It was an insult and an affront to those murdered and the survivors of same, when Bloomberg supported the very people responsible for the devastation and murder, in their planting their flag of conquest at ground zero, in the form of a mosque. I won’t even mention they’re the same people calling for the annihilation of Israel.
If New York were attacked tomorrow and another 3,000 people were murdered, would he allow prayer then? Would he allow prayer at a public event if a terrorist act murdered 50 people this evening?
The unprovoked murder of 3,000 New Yorkers was unconscionable. It was a personal insult to the survivor families and New Yorkers for Bloomberg and Obama to support the building of a mosque at ground zero, but this is an act of unbridled contempt for American’s traditional faith community. This is a mayor who supports abortion, who supports homosexuality, who supports homosexual marriage, who supports government depriving people of their Constitutional rights, who supports socialism in the form of the redistribution of wealth – but when it comes to simple matters of faith and prayer, he opposes it.
This is not in keeping with the will of the overwhelming majority of New Yorkers. It is a deplorable example of the denial of surviving families and community to openly give thanks to God for bringing them through these bitter years.
Shame of Bloomberg for such an act. This is one time that I would encourage people to do one of two things. The first would be to host the event at a different time or different day and not permit Bloomberg. The other would be to have the participants and the people openly defy his edict. Force him to arrest everyone there for publicly praying in commemoration of the deadliest act of terror in our history.
