HELP to Re-Build St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church at Ground Zero FIRST!!

WHY have  the   PRIORITIES of Mayor Bloomberg  BEEN DISPLACED?? WHO BOUGHT HIM OFF??

From a friend of NMAGZ:

“There was a wonderful Greek Orthodox Church at Ground Zero-St. Nicholas-established in 1916.

It was the ONLY place of worship at Ground Zero and on September 11th, the entire weight of World Trade Center Tower 2 came down on St. Nicholas Church, completely destroying the building and its contents.

Only a handful of damaged icons and religious items were found amongst the rubble.

We were promised (We-yes I use to go there and to most of us Greeks, our religion is very much a part of who we are) land at 120 Liberty Street by Governor Pataki and then Spitzer. However over a year ago, the Port Authority in conjunction with the Governor Patterson have ceased negotiations–as in “won’t return our calls”.

The PR the Port Authority came out with is that the Church was greedy, wanted money, etc.  All false!!! Now lo and behold and Mosque deal has been done, it seems Governor Patterson had time for that!! To me, its 2 things–an attack on Christianity and money that is passing under the table faster than the speed of light-these are my opinions.

Also, Mayor Bloomberg, has said on the radio that he is in the process of negotiating with the Church, that is an outright lie!

So here are some links (below) to our  story. If you have any interest and want to update yourself please follow the links.

There is one link sent by AHEPA–that asks to sign a petition. My mission is to spread awareness of this sin. So I ask that you spread the word through email, twitter, facebook or even casual conversation.
.
At this point Greeks–and more from the East–are aware of this but I we are getting lot of support from Non-Greeks which is so appreciated..Whatever you feel comfortable with I respect.”

There is No CHURCH AT GROUND ZERO!!
