A Syriac Orthodox Church in Hackensack has a growing congregation, and needs a new building. However, one site discussed for the purpose has caused some stir among fellow residents of the city.

From the article:
Quote
"Churches are closing left and right, but we are trying to keep a church open, which is good for a community," said the Rev. Aziz Hadodo, pastor of the church, who said the plans have been scaled back since they were first submitted to the city.

I hope the Syriac Church finds another, larger and more welcoming area.

And a nice mosque buys St. Mark's.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Thirty years in local government administration for me and frankly, I had it with the 'public', at least the ones who made all of the noise. (left, right, center, old, young, gay, straight...didn't matter....)  Whatever you tried to do it was always NIMBY  NIMBY NIMBY (not in my back yard) ....Lower my taxes, but don't cut out my program;drill for oil, but not on my shoreline or no fracking by my pond...blah  blah  blah... Then when nothing happens, the vast majority of the community who never say anything look around and go 'Huh? What's wrong with this town........'

I agree with Isa, hope a mosque buys the property.
