Well this is good news. I commend the pastor for having the good sense to change his mind.
I also see Imam Rauf is softening his stance a bit too on the Controversial Park 51 Community Center in New York City, and while he hasn't stated he
will move it, or that he is meeting with the Pastor as reported, he has said had he known how much controversy it would cause he would have likely
proceeded by a different path since he is looking to create unity not divisions.
Donald Trump has waded in with his giant sized ego and check book offering 25% more than the Park 51 Land is worth in an attempt to avert any future
controversy that way.
Now if we could just get the angry distracted people of America to focus on some real issues, and the people of ATS back to discussing conspiracies
and trying to debunk them life might actually still work out for the best.
People have traditionally always looked for heros and champions to promote their causes, and in my humble opinion the pastor has moved from a zero
closer to a hero in calling off this very divisive act.
Sometimes you have to give to get, and you sure can kill a lot more flies with honey than vinegar, and I think this whole episode might likewise
engourage Rauf to move his Community Center project as a sign of good faith and tit for tat reconcilliation.
Both would have a right to do these things, the Pastor and the Imam but both hopefully will come to realize that having a right doesn't always mean
it's going to be the right thing to do.
That's not bowing to terrorism, that's bowing to wisdom.
