The “Ground Zero Mosque”: A Discussion (Video)
On September 28, 2010, Professor Steven Heyman, Attorney Mazen Asbahi and I participated in a panel discussion at Chicago-Kent College of Law on the “Ground Zero Mosque”–the proposed Islamic cultural center–in Manhattan.
I spoke about the Religion Clauses and federal statutory law, Professor Heyman addressed the nature of the political discourse and Mr. Asbahi discussed the topic from an American Muslim perspective. All of this was followed by a spirited discussion among the panelists and with the audience.
The program is an hour long. It was sponsored by Kent’s Society of Law Students for Secularism (which organized the event) and co-sponsored by the Muslim Law Students Association, the National Lawyers Guild and the Institute for Law and Humanities.
