Pinhead for the Month of September: Mayor Bloomberg

As we get closer to the date September 11th, a number of programs on cable and the local channels are scheduled to be aired.

Every time I see such programs I can't help but fill that lump in my throat at the lose of life and how that lose took place. All those feels are just automatically brought to the surface again.

I remember the vigils at church, street corners, night time candle vigils, speeches, talks from lay people, priests, pastors, government officials.

In every one of those talks there was an appeal to God or at least His name was mentioned or just the term "God Bless America" was proclaimed or sung.

Mayor Bloomberg's rational for his decision to eliminate religion from the 9/11 remembrances  is just totally off base, in every aspect. This article addresses only a few but they are made in charity and to the point.

Blomberg’s 9/11 Gag Rule Insults Catholics    

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s handling of the 9/11 memorial ceremonies:

Last year, Mayor Bloomberg sought to justify his support for building a mosque near Ground Zero by recalling the bravery of the firefighters on that fateful day. “In rushing into those burning buildings, not one of them asked, ‘What God do you pray to?’” He added, “We do not honor their lives by denying the very constitutional rights they died protecting.”
