Imam, Preacher, Rabbi on Islamic Center Near Ground Zero

A preacher, a rabbi, and an imam talk about faith relations in America as the debate over the Manhattan Islamic center rolls on.

The controversy over the proposed Islamic Community Center near the former World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan has gone loudly, fully national. Gone global, really.

Politicians and fundamentalists are making hay on the emotions and fear and offense around the issue. There are angry protests at the site. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg loudly defends the plan as a test and proof of American values.

Today, we talk with three prominent religious thinkers – a preacher, an imam, and a rabbi – about how they see what’s unfolding. We look at Islam, and faith relations in America now.
