Republican candidate for Illinois governor Bill Brady says he thinks there's a "lack of sensitivity" regarding the building of a mosque near the site of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York City.There here's Democratic incumbent Pat Quinn's comments on this particular issue from the Post-Dispatch:
Brady on Tuesday wouldn't give an opinion on whether he supports or opposes the mosque site near Ground Zero. He said he hopes "sensitive minds will deal with this in a sensible way."
Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn on Wednesday said he believes proponents of building a mosque near the site of the 9-11 attacks in New York City should respect a ``zone of solemnity'' and move it further from the site.Quinn, surprisingly may have handled this issue better than the Democratic nominee for US Senate. ;)
The comments were surprising because Quinn is the state's top Democrat and a staunch supporter of President Barack Obama, who has said the mosque has the right to locate near ``ground zero'' as a statement of American principles of freedom of religion.
