London Mega-mosque


Plans are underway for a new mega-mosque in London - timed  for completion for the London Olympics and backed by London mayor Ken Livingstone. There has been much discussion regarding claims that the planning process in being short -circuited.

The Telegraph newspaper reported:

One Islamic web site says:

......However, although the planning application for the Mega mosque has not yet been submitted, there is a 49,981 signature petition AGAINST building the Mosque. This petition was created and promoted by those affiliated with far right groups and with strong racist and Islamophobic views. What is more concerning is that it has been estimated that at least 2500 of the signatures are from Muslims......

Should Christians be concerned about this proposal? Or is this an acceptable feature in a country proud of its religious freedoms?
