Developers are apparently having problems finding an Islamic Imam who isn’t offensive. Imagine that:
A recently appointed senior adviser to the Muslim cultural center and mosque planned near the site of New York’s September 11 attacks has stepped down, the center’s developer said.
The move came days after remarks surfaced in which he said homosexuality was most often the result of sexual abuse.
“Imam Abdallah Adhami announced today that he will no longer serve as Senior Adviser to Park51,” the project’s developer, Sharif El-Gamal, said in a statement posted on Facebook.
The resignation came just weeks after the project’s public faces, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his wife, Daisy Khan, stepped down as leaders of the project.
You know… I had an idea…
In 2012, an ardent supporter of all things Islamic should become available to step in and lead. This person is seen as a spiritual guide for many and it would fulfill a personal goal of reaching out to Muslims worldwide.
