With Muslim apologists and blind Leftists supporting the building of Cordoba House (which includes a Mosque) a sniff away from Ground Zero in New York City, it is mind boggling that there is not more visible and vocal support to rebuild St. Nicholas Orthodox Church that was actually destroyed by the Islamic terrorist attack on the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers on 911!
About one thousand protesters/worshippers came on Sunday Dec. 5, 2010 marking the Feast of St Nicholas. The St. Nicholas Orthodox Church has been attempting to get a building permit to rebuild their Church destroyed as collateral damage from the 911 Islamic terrorist attacks.

NEW YORK (WCBS 880/1010 WINS) — New York’s Greek Orthodox community gathered in Lower Manhattan Sunday afternoon at the site of their church, which was destroyed in the September 11 attacks.
Though they have no church building, they celebrated the Feast of St. Nicholas at ground zero, reports WCBS 880’s Ginny Kosola.
About 1,000 people gathered in the bitter cold for the annual service marking the Feast of St. Nicholas.
Father Mark Arey said talks with the Port Authority over rebuilding there broke off last year and have not been restarted.
Archbishop Demetrios, leader of the Greek Orthodox Church in America, said he is optimistic that the church will be rebuilt.
“We have no doubt whatsoever that the work will be done with the new government,” Archbishop Demetrios said.
St. Nicholas Church was destroyed when one of the World Trade Center towers collapsed on top of it.
The church had stood at the site since 1916. It was the only house of worship destroyed on September 11.
