Developer Sharif El-Gamal said Imam Abdallah Adhami will no longer be involved with Park51, a proposed Islamic center a few blocks from a significant construction site in Lower Manhattan. Echoing sentiments widely held by Jewish and Christian religious clerics, he made a bunch of disparaging shit about homosexuals, easily igniting another public firestorm over the perpetually doomed location.
He is the second imam to walk away from what has become an unnecessarily controversial project. By the time this thing gets built, the new World Trade Center tower will have been knocked down already. Problem solved!
