People Still Hating on Park51 Mosque

08.31.11 Myles Tanzer

Last summer’s mosque controversy showed the absolute worst of some New Yorkers. The August heat made people psycho and think it was even a little bit acceptable to have a discussion about whether a house of worship should be built near a construction site. Well this week marks the one year anniversary of the Park51 freakout and the ignorant protestors are still pissed off.

The religious center held their first multifaith event this week to try and appease its detractors. But Rosaleen Tallon, a protestor of the mosque, isn’t buying it. She told Metro that the mosque’s existence is “whitewashing history.” Just move to Arizona already and get over it. (Photo: WarmSleepy/flickr)
