Al Franken: Conservative Criticism To Mosque 'Disgraceful,'
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) said on Wednesday that conservative criticism of plans to develop a mosque and Islamic community center in close proximity to "Ground Zero" in New York City is "one of the most disgraceful things that I've heard."
"I don't know how many of you have been to New York, but if a building is two blocks away from anything, you can't see it," he said, according to the State Journal-Register.
Franken added a little levity to the occasion by pointing out that the proposed community center would have a basketball court with "Muslim point guards." Critics will surely not be amused.
