Why the Facts About the “Ground Zero Mosque” are Overlooked

August 20, 2010 Leave a comment

The “Ground Zero Mosque” in New York has stirred up quite a debate in our society.  Regardless of where you stand on this issue, it is important to get the facts before making any decision, especially one that serves judgement.  A recent article in The Huffington Post illustrates our tendency to ignore facts and make decisions based on our emotion and previous notions.  As you read, pay attention the information that contradicts your current image of the situation.  Though there is commentary that seems congruent with one side of the argument, the article does a great job of introducing facts to this hot-button issue.
