Talk about your clerical errors!
Bronx: Re “Imam’s big scam” (Feb. 6): Gee, what a shock. The characters surrounding the infamous Ground Zero mosque are alleged to be â€” wait for it â€” a den of thieves! Who would have thought? They were not sincere, genuine people who only wanted to build bridges among all peoples regardless of race, creed or color; they were in it for the money! So that means the people who protested this two-bit phony travesty from the start were right. Let’s see ifÂ Mayor Bloomberg, who ridiculed them â€” many of them parents of responders who rushed into the towers on 9/11 and died doing so â€” as close-minded bigots issues an apology as deep-felt as his passionate, teary-eyed speech in support of this mosque. Somehow, I doubt it.Â Â Michael Burke
Silver Spring, Md.: No one should be surprised that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the advocate for a mosque close to Ground Zero, is a common crook. His out-of-control plans for a mosque to be built on hallowed ground honored the perpetrators and not the victims. The imam played a classic con on the public. Nelson Marans
