NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg refuses to allow clergy participation in 9/11 commemoration


Religious leaders are calling on Mayor Michael Bloomberg to reverse course and offer clergy a role in the ceremony commemorating the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

Rudy Washington, a deputy mayor in former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s administration, said he’s outraged. Mr. Washington organized an interfaith ceremony at Yankee Stadium shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“This is America, and to have a memorial service where there’s no prayer, this appears to be insanity to me,” said Mr. Washington, who has suffered severe medical problems connected to the time he spent at Ground Zero. …

Bloomberg maybe claim to be “independent”, he is still a democrat.


  1. I thought we agreed on this like, 200 years ago. We need separation of church and state.

    • This has nothing to do about the lie about separation of church and state. The US Constitution does not say anything about it. You might want to the read the 1st Amendment again and get your facts straight. You cannot prohibit freedom of religion in the public square anymore than you can speech. You are blabbing the same old worn out lies from the left.
