NEW YORK: Pat Robertson Sues City To Stop The Ground Zero Mosque
Pat Robertson's legal foundation filed a lawsuit in New York state court yesterday in an attempt to overturn the city's approval of the plan to build a mosque on a site near Ground Zero.
The American Center for Law and Justice says it filed a petition Wednesday challenging a city panel’s decision to let developers tear down a building to make way for the mosque. The Washington-based group is representing a firefighter who survived the terrorist attacks. Opponents say the mosque plan insults the memory of those killed by Islamic terrorists nearly nine years ago. Supporters see it as a monument to tolerance.Robertson was last in the news when he claimed that Haiti was struck by that devastating earthquake because the nation's founders had sold their souls to Satan in return for independence from France.
